Great food

New to the city, we stumbled upon Tony's and we're glad we did. We asked what the how specialties were, and ordered the tortellini with meat sauce, the tortelloni with tomato sauce and the Bolognese cutlet. All were delicious! When asked, we were brought English menus and the waiter spoke... read more

We went to Trattoria Tony after the front desk at our hotel recommended it to us. We were seated upon arrival, then ignored. And ignored. And ignored. And ignored. After about 15 minutes, we were finally able to get a waiter's attention. He took our order. And then ignored us some more. The evening pretty went on like this until... More

Were seated right away. After we sat were promptly ignored for over 20 minutes. Restaurant wasn't overly crowed, one waitress was just standing there. in Bologna food is pretty good every where. This was food was standard for Bologna, but they totally lose it on the service. I love Bologna, but this is a place not worth the effort.

I would rate as 4 stars, however my partner would not. This is maybe a question of choice however. Service and location was very good. Wine was also really tasty (regional barbera). That is if you are having meat. My aforementioned partner thinks it was average and over-priced. I had the steak with green pepper sauce and really enjoyed it.... More

We had one of the best meals in this unpretentious trattoria. The roasted lamb and the veal were excellent, very good pasta to start with and the barbera (of the region) was topclass. Price/Quality unbeatable.

While not the best meal we had in Bologna, this place offers traditional Bolgnese dishes in a simple setting, with good value. The ragu and tortellini in brodo are excellent.

Oh, more Italian it cannot get :) We loved it, the food, the service and of course Tony himself!! Food was amazing!! 1 liter of house wine for 8 euro, and it was superb!! Try out their "noodle" soup, my husband loved it and I loved my risotto. Thank you Tony for your tips about Ravenna!!

Top Tortelllini on our first night in Bologna. Every table taken and people turned away midweek, how this place isn't higher up the "Tripadvisor list" beats me. This is no wine fuelled eulogy on the back of a belly full of bread. I'm on pills for a skin condition (busy roads bring me out in hives) so perhaps this region... More
