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!

Having found the osteria we were originally intending to visit packed out - as we walked back to via dell'independence this little trattoria on the via righi beckoned my husband in with it's quaint interior and intimate candle lit tables. With friendly and efficient service from the waitresses and some rather fab house red to wash down the breadsticks, we... More

After a bad experience in another restaurant and a search for a nice restaurant (many closed due to august-holiday-time in Italy) we came across this lovely place (due to tripadvisor!). And all positive feedback was more than experienced by us: fast service, good English, nice atmosphere, very tasty home-food for decent prices. For sure you have to come by here... More

Very cozy and atmospheric restaurant! Quality of food and maintenance- very good! I can not agree with the other guests on the dish "Vitello Tonnato" - it's awful! It is the sauce! One mayonnaise - anchovies and tuna in the minimum number! the rest - perfect!

Last week I had dinner here with my friend while we were on a holiday in Bologna. This trattoria is a small, cute restaurant in a quieter part of the center of Bologna. The atmosphere of this restaurant is authentic, warm and romantic. Besides tourists, also a lot of Italians come to eat here. The staff is friendly and their... More

My husband and I ate here on our overnight stay in Bologna. We were seated just inside the doorway which was perfect as we could see outside without the noise. We had an excellent meal, tagliatelle with ragu followed by liver for my husband and steak for myself, a bottle of water and a litre of house wine all for... More
