Very special and very traditional place. Local food is excellent. Beef with porcini mushrooms is something amazing! Good vine list. Friendly service and warm atmosphere. Restaurant is also famous that mentioned in "The Broker" a suspense novel written by American author John Grisham and published in 2005 :)

We had a great night at Franco Rossi. I loved the traditional male/female menus - and the rose I received when leaving. The food was good and the service was great! The waiters were a lot of fun and suggested an excellent bottle of wine to go with our meal.

While in Bologna stop at this great restaurant. Good food and atmosphere perfect selection of wine. Very quiet, perfect for a relaxing evening. Check out the wash rooms clean and high class, a nice thing to find in Italy.

We had the buffalo mozzarella and carpaccio which was outstanding. The home made pasta was some of the best I have ever had. Also had the filet of beef with porcini mushrooms which was excellent. It was a good value considering the quality of the food. They have a great wine list including a nice list of half bottles.

Our hotel recommended this on our first night and we enjoyed it so much we went back for our last night. The staff are so welcoming and attentive (in a pleasant and non-creepy way). Almost as soon as we sat down, we were given a tasting of delicious pignoletto wine and brought small samples of food to taste. The menu... More

Very professional service. They could add some more food choices on the menu. The food we had was delicious though. Small restaurant and the decor needs updating. The restaurant was mentioned in a John Grisham novel.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and decided to come here after finding out that the restaurant recommended on tripadvisor was closed the last two weeks in August for vacation. We got bread on the table and I requested for some Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper. I ordered the Tagliatelle Bolognese was it was delicious. We were full... More

This restaurant was immediately across the narrow via from our hotel in via Goito. Service was excellent, staff were most welcoming and attentive to our needs. Food was superb and attention was given to the way it was served. Extensive wine list added to the memorable experience. Franco, the owner, also made us feel very welcome by visiting our table...
