Atmospheric , attentive staff, very tasty traditional food. Interior no doubt the same as the day it opened as is everything else. We will return bellisiamo! A must in Bologna.

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

Recommended by our hotel, this small trattoria is outstanding! The vegetable lasagna amazing, and the filet in fresh peppercorn sauce amazing! Great service, typical trattoria ... Not fancy, but great food

Tony's exists in another place and time, perhaps some point even before it opened in 1968. There is nothing modern or affected about the place, the service or the clientele- which includes a good mix of regulars and visitors from the neighboring hotels. It is a scene (a brightly lit one at that) run by people who enjoy what they... More

We passed by this restaurant during our first night in Bologna but could not get a table because we did not have a reservation. We thought this is a sign for good food and we made a reservation for the next day for dinner. The service was good but we had a table in the back which I did not... More

An ancient Trattoria with good food and the smallest portions ever at a high price. Couvert 3€, a bottle of water 2,40€ and a digestive after dinner 4€. We were 12 people and for an antipasto for 6 (one every two people) and one dish of tortellini each one we spent 25 euros pro person, a little bit too much... More

A good find in the heart of Bologna serving deliciously cooked regional dishes. We ate outside as the weather was quite mild and cannot fault the service which was efficient and discreet. The pasta dishes were superb and the main courses were tasty and well cooked although the zucchini side dish was a little too bland. The house white was... More

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.
