Small place in a side street, running by an alder man that is also the waiter. The service was great and also the small portions, although the menu is not rich.

If I'd seen the reviews I'd have avoided this place. However, I'm glad I didn't. The food I had was excellent, the service made me feel at home and decor which made me feel happy and content. No complaints at all with the food. It was simply excellent. Most reviews for this place comment on the cost rather than the... More

If I had checked the Tripadvisor in advance before entering this restaurant for lunch, we would surely have avoided it, so I am happy we did not check. The atmosphere is pleasant with lots of 1960es stuff, the food was good, the service impeccable, and the suggested wine was also good. In short: A pleasant little restaurant.

Like most people on here we also stumbled upon this little place for a late lunch and really enjoyed our meal. I was surprised by some of the reviews regarding the waiter and can only think we got someone different as our host was polite and very attentive. He gave us the history of the road and the city and... More

As with almost everyone else who has written a comment here, we stumbled across this place by chance and were attracted by its quaintness. The experience didn't disappoint so I was very surprised by the vast number of negative reviews that I found when I went to check it out on TA. The host was utterly charming, talking to French,...

We were a few days in Bologna and we have payed this restaurant a visit two times. Beforehand we were not aware of these negative reviews on tripadvisor. Both visits we made, were more than pleasant. The food was very good and the service too. The owner was an interested and warm person. The prices were normal. We absolutely do... More

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) assaulting my wife and telling her “This is MY... 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.
