My boyfriend made a reservation at La Montanara. We arrived a little early and the waitress told us to come 15 minutes later, which was inconvenient for us after a day walking and shopping we were tired and would have preferred if at least the waitress let us sit down and have a drink. The antipasti were delightful and freshly... More

Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. Glad we booked before we travelled too. Speciality of the house - traditional bolognese - was terrific. Followed by a beautifully cooked steak in balsamic. Highly recommend a visit.

You must book or you may be disappointed. The food and service was brilliant. A small menu which confirms that your food will be freshly cooked. All reasonably priced together with the local wine. A small and intimate restaurant.

Such a great dinner and one of the best antipasti plates I've had. Great wine, great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended for dinner.

Only a limited menu but we were made to feel so welcome as though we had stepped into their own house. I would strongly recommend to anyone. So good we went again the next night.

Five star! Was there last night... but have also been there in the past. This belongs to a shortist of my favourite restaurants... for sure one of best spots in bologna for price/quality. Food is great, atmosphere is relaxing, and people serving very kind and patient. The only regret is that is very small so you should book...

We enjoyed dinner here very much! It was quiet, cozy and delicious. It's a great place to eat traditional food at a good value. The staff was lovely as well. We started with the appetizer sampler and then each got a different pasta with meat sauce. We finished with the vegetables and pine nuts. The wine was very reasonably priced... More

Great food with really tasty pasta and tiramisu. Little above average price but definitely worth the money. But be in time, all tables gets taken very fast. Highly recommend this trattoria!
