Delicious!

Lovely restaurant with traditional Bolognese cooking in a clean, bright space... The best tortellini soup we had in Bologna and the servers were helpful and all spoke English.

Food is very good along with the atmosphere. The prices are fairly reasonable, but for the quality, the value is quite good. You can spend as much elsewhere and receive mediocre food. Also thought the service was good and very friendly.

Nice little restaurant with small menu (indicates fresh food). I had lasagna with guinea fowl, the best lasagna I ever had. Interesting wine list, smooth and very friendly service. Very good price/quality ratio. Next time I am in Bologna I will not hesitate to go back.

This was our best meal in Bologna. Truly superb. The food was outstanding, possibly one of the best meals we have ever eaten. My husband and I always end up ordering the same thing so we only experienced the guinea fowl, but it was off the scale fabulous. The pudding sounded simple enough but was stunning. One pasta between two... More

Hotel had recommended this restaurant and made us a reservation. Near P. Magiore but tucked away. I think we walked past it the first time. Thought all courses well presented. I started w/ steak tartare. Hadnt had it in years. Very traditional. Real ground beef but a very good quality. Some high grade Parmesan, arugula, sea salt and splash of... More

The restaurant is situated in a quiet street off the beaten track, which was nice. The only downside to this is it is fairly airless and stuffy as no breeze. The decor was calming in shades of whites and creams. It was clean and modern, however, the casual table and chairs (poor quality- resembles a card table you would have... More

Excellent good value food in good location with friendly efficient staff, couldn't ask for more. Off main drag in heart of Bologna , need to book to avoid frustration of finally finding it and being turned away because it is fully booked. If you fancy good quality Italian food that is not pizza then go there- you won't be disappointed.

Our bellboy recommended this place to us and he was not wrong. It caters to tourists and locals alike, and is off the crazy busy tourist streets, which makes it more attractive. The menu was limited but lovely with perfect renditions of the local classics. Best of all, the waitstaff was positively effervescent. A pleasure all around.

Wow. The standard of cooking was excellent. Spent two evenings here out of six in Bologna. It takes great skill to cook soufflés and they were done to perfection. A limited menu but all dishes superb. Good wine list. Great helpful staff. Nice to sit outside. We nearly did not go there because looks very ordinary when closed. A few... More
