Nice little place in the town center. Good pasta and an incredible filetto di Manzo gratinato al pesto bolognese. Outstanding! Service was first rate. Will be back again!

We made reservations in advance and arrived on time for our 20.30 reservation. Promptly greeted and offered a number of choice tables. We choose for a table in the middle of the second room. It was half full when we arrived but never 100% full during our visit. Menus were offered in Italian and English. Water is served either still... More

We had such a fantastic evening here. The waiter was superb - warm, interested, attentive, and he clearly loves the food and drink of the region. We had a plate of delicious and varied antipasti meats followed by a pasta dish each. Everything was excellent. At the end of the meal we didn't have room for the desserts but the... More

We ate here in the summer and had a wonderful meal for my husband's birthday. Traditional dishes and ingredients are prepared with lightness and finesse. The presentation is modern but not over fussy and the quality of the ingredients shines through. I had the tortellini in brodo followed by loin of rabbit. Both were excellent. There is an excellent and... More

My husband and I dined here during a four day gastronomic tour of lovely Bologna and enjoyed every bite. The restaurant if on a tiny lane by the same name, just south of Piazza Maggiore. The room is clean and modern, the service friendly with good English spoken. The antipasti of meats was fresh and tasty, but the standouts of... More

This wonderful restaurant is situated in a small quiet side street just a minutes walk from the bustling Piazza Maggiore. My wife and I dined here on our first nights stay in Bologna, and we were so blown away with the quality of the food, we just had to come back and try other things on their mouth watering menu....

Nice restaurant, very delicious home made pasta, modern ambience (not your typical osteria, if you are looking for that). Service was very good. Nice wine selection. Panna cotta was one of the best I have ever had.

Of the three outstanding restaurants we visited on our trip to Bologna; Vicolo Colombina possibly delivered the best food. So what did we have? As usual, the plate of salami and other cold meats was simply outstanding, especially the brawn, (sometimes referred to by the unappetising name of ‘head-cheese’). Now that was worth the visit in itself. For the pasta... More

Close to the main square in a small lane, we ate there on two consecutive evenings. On both evenings it was fully booked and very busy. Excellent service especially the head waiter/sommelier. The tortelli with almonds and talleggio in a pea puree were sublime, the wine list extensive, the relaxed atmosphere and welcoming approach to children (typically Italian are to... More
