Tipical Italian (Bolognese) dishes

Been there for a business dinner, with an arranged menu, so not much room for choice; I was the only italian at the table, and I wasn't disappointed at all by the kitchen, service and food level. The entreés were plain italian salumi, very good, tasty and perfectly served, but nothing special... read more

I went here on the recommendation of a friend who visits Bologna each month for work. He said this restaurant was his favourite and he visited on each business trip. We had tagliatelle Bolognese (excellent), grigliata mista and an excellent bottle of wine which our waiter Domenico kindly recommended. The dessert and sorbet were both excellent too. Whilst a little... More

We went there with the famiy. The food, service and ambiance was excellent. It is good for family dining also. The sole was extra ordinary.

This restaurant is a five minute walk from the the Piazza Maggiore and has a beautiful old time feel. The service staff here is very helpful and greatly aided our decisions on dishes through their recommendations. The food was outstanding. We had a appetizer of Della Morte, salami and Parmsan cheese followed by a Primi of two types of pasta... More

Known the Rodrigo restaurant for a while Renovated recently,for me Rodrigo still is a place where you can have a dissent dinner. Service is excellent,people always receiving you with a smile,and perfect food (been a lover of "kidneys",I can say it is a must to taste them)

I have been invited here a number of times by a person who has been a regular customer for the last forty years. I noticed the comment from another reviewer about the waiter being pushy; I think that the person did not understand. This restaurant offers really excellent food both fish and meat, and the menu changes based on fresh... More

We have read the other reviews which seem to be quite good - however we had a rather different experience. The thing is, in a restaurant with friends the food needs to be good AND the service / friendliness of the staff needs to be good too - if not it can quickly sour the food. Sadly that was our...

Rodrigo,situated in the heart of Bologna(very near to the Piaca Magore),is one of the "old"restaurants in town,which was renovated last year(although I loved even more the previous style). Food is perfect,service is friendly,and you can have a really good dinner.And for a non cheap restaurant,food is worth the price
