We always eat at Da Gianni when we are in Bologna. The food and service are excellent. Da Gianni serves the classic regional food that makes Bologna famous all over Italy and the wines are excellent and reasonably priced. We enjoyed Bissoni Sangiovese Riserva. It was a memorable meal. We had:tagliatelle with a luscious rabbit ragu and gramigna with sausage... More

We found this restaurant by looking in the guide books etc. Excellent food friendly waiters the only negative thing I can give is I felt the courses were a little rushed 3 courses gone after 1 hour. No breaks in between. Very busy people being turned away Highly recommend that you book. Well worth a visit.

We discovered this restaurant last year and enjoyed it so much we returned to Bologna just to eat here again! It was recommended to us by a barista when I stopped for coffee and asked for a restaurant "not touristy with a good kitchen". A lovely couple own and operate this cozy place. The husband cooks and the wife does... More

No hesitation in recommending this place if you want a great local Italian. All other diners were locals and the joint was packed all night - booking essential as they were turning away walk ins all night!

We have made a number of visits to this beautiful city and had fallen into the habit of revisiting old finds. But a less-than-satisfactory repeat visit to another of our old favorites for lunch the day before inspired us to keep a look-out for something new. There are any number of outdoor dining opportunities along Via Clavature, but we watched... More

I cannot believe anyone could give this place less than 5 stars. We stumbled upon this place a little after 1:30 PM not sure if they would be staying open for lunch much longer but gave it a shot anyway. We walked in and felt like there were not many other Americans in there but were warmly greeted by all... More

Went to Trattoria Gianni after being pushed into it by the desk person at the hotel (see our review of Art Hotel Novecento). We were not sure about it after reading several recent reviews, so we decided to have appetizers and leave if not pleased. My wife decided to have soup first, and my daughter and I told the waiter...

They took us in without a reservation and the food came quick. The waiter kept us entertained And gave great suggestions. Go with the specials and you will not be disappointed.

I was expecting this meal to be one of my better meals in Bologna, and after having the very interesting appetizer platter, i thought that might be the case; however, the pasta dishes were all over cooked and way too soft in texture. Flavourwise, it was also a bit light as well, I guess I should have tried renting a... More
