Food consistent and somewhere I would take visiting friends to have the traditional dishes eg lasagna, tortellini, tagliatelle bolognese. Good location, friendly service, almost busy so go early as the lasagna does run out! My favourite is the creme brulee, which is in my opinion the best in Bologna! A tad more expensive but if you want to eat in... More

We ate there and my friends had very good Risotto con fungi and I had a decent home-made Tortteloni con pomodoro. The desert was just ok (fiore di latte and panna cotta). The service is nice, but speed is not their strongest side. With wine and coffee approx. 20€/person.

I just had dinner at Trattoria Tony and I have to say that it was the worst experience I ever had in Italy. Average food with average prices but with a terrible atmosphere and conditions (no air conditioned) and above all I had the worst expetiences ever with a waiter, no education at all!! Besides all of this, you still... More

Just off the main street of Via Indipendenza it is a smallish and unassuming family run restaurant in an area where it has to compete with many other more tourist-orientated restaurants. However, it appears to do this very successfully as it is always crowded. It has tables outside as well as in and taking its popularity as a good sign... More

I love the home made pasta, the boiled meat with the bolognese sauce, they remind me of good old days, and in whole Bologna this IS the real stuff! I met personally Tony years ago, his family still there to have traditional bolognese cousine frozen in a time-bubble!

Home made pasta, bollito con salsa verde, prosecco scaraffato... Nice place at the edge of the University area, excellent food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. At one point a group of midlle east customers sat down and asked for fish and for pizza, they were told this is a placof bolognese cuisine, and fish and pizza are not part of it.... More

We couldn't get in one evening because it was full and took that as a good sign, so made a reservation another evening. The meal was all-right, home-made pasta good, steak edible but unremarkable; service was fair . Like most places there is a cover charge for bread, grated parmesan, oil and vinegar. There are better places.

Located a few minutes walk from the Piazza Maggiore, I opted to dine at this Trattoria after seeing some reviews on tripadvisor. Decor is tiring, very simple and common. Menu is well varied and priced moderately. Service could be better. For starter I had Tagliatelle al ragu, good but I had much better in Bologna. For main i opted for... More

We were lucky enough to get a table here over Easter weekend when the town was very busy, and were so glad that we did. It's a family-run concern, friendly to tourists (though most diners seemed to be local), and serves high-quality regional home cooking. My tortellini en brodo was the best I had in Bologna - plump little pasta... More
