What TripAdvisor was created for... to warn other travellers... AVOID!

Like another UK TA member, we were reluctant to criticise - until we saw the vast number of people complaining about this ‘tourist trap’. Being a member of The Consumers’ Association in the UK, I should be quite difficult to trick, but I fell for it! And caught the waiter/owner (verbally... read more

After trying fantastic food and wines at OTHERS restaurants in the area, I agrees with most reviewers that the value, service and quality are not acceptable at Enoteca del Carro. Skip it.

Over priced wines, de-frozen lasagna, endless speaking owner/waiter with the only goal of selling you more serves. Dodgy interiors. It is a total waste of one of the nicest spots in the inner Bologna.

We were tired after a long day walking around bologna, and had the misfortune to go to this place. Cardboard menus, cardboard sign at the end of the street, etc, etc, They have a rustic look with a very un-rustic attitude to charging! It's very quirky both inside and out and attracted us, MISTAKE. I hadn't had a Bolognese at... More

You don't get to charge a cover charge AND a service charge. The cover charge is supposed to pay for the service. A bottle of water is 5 euro. Nickeled and dimed. Our bill came to 67 euro for two people, 3 plates, and a half liter of wine and water. A rip off.

I had the worst tourist trap of my life in my hometown, what a shame! The only nice thing about this place is its location, right in the heart of the city. But the ordinary food, the poor service and, especially, the hefty bill lead me to a strong suggestion: JUST AVOID! You can find better food, more polite service... More

After reading the comments here I feel better about writing to truth about this place. I actually felt bad about my views on this place, since the two men who work there were very friendly. DO NOT GO HERE. PLEASE DON'T. This was the worst meal I can remember, and one of the more expensive. I had the duck, which... More

Overpriced...just avoid it....there are hundreds of better options. Which is a shame, it is charming inside with lots of quirky memorabilia and serves good pasta. I spent £10 more than I should have so not upset...just opt for better value.
