Good traditional restaurant

We initially ate here as it was so close to our hotel and enjoyed it so much we booked again for another night. The food was very tasty with a nice selection of traditional regional dishes. The very nice lady owner was more than happy to give advice and she spoke excellent English. Our bill... read more

Agree with most of the other reviewers so nothing more to add than what everyone else already has said. The owner, the lady was super helpful and friendly and her husband was okay. But let's focus on the food. My expectation in Italy is that every restaurant should be good, that's how it always was before social media. And this... More

A very friendly restaurant well run by husband and wife team. The food is very good though quantities were on the large side for us. We both had tortellini in brodo to start. My husband had veal with asparagus for his main course while I had slices of fillet steak with lambs lettuce, parmigiano and balsamic vinegar. We both had... More

This lovely local restaurant was a few yards from our hotel and there was seating inside and out. We chose outside on a lovely evening. We each chose a pasta dish with rage bolognese which we enjoyed. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Nice staff and friendly service.

I went to this place because people in trip advisor seemed to like it. And they weren't lying. This place is just amazing, the food is spectacular, the service impeccable and atmosphere is great. I was traveling solo and they managed to accommodate me without a reservation, but I was quite early, I would recommend to book first as they... More

Based upon the good reviews we my wife and I went here on our first evening in Bologna. We went by taxi and that was a good idea because it's not easy to find. The atmosphere is great; really authentic Italian. We weren't that enthustiastic about the winelist. The red wine selection is good but a very poor white wine... More

Restaurant located about 15 minutes from main tourist sites, close to the edge of old town. Area is residential and a bit sketchy (which is not unusual for Bologna), but totally safe. Locals arrive around 9 so it is not busy earlier. Food is very good with a small menu. This place is managed by a husband and wife team,... More

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and was recommended by them. We were not disappointed as all the food and wine was of very high quality and of generous portions. The staff were very pleasant too and I would definitely return to this restaurant.
