Well planned good menu

We were a party of 8, we booked ahead on the advice of our hotel and were well pleased. The room was comfortable, the staff knowledgeable and the food delicious. Quite a small menu which gave us confidence that all the dishes are freshly prepared. Not too expensive for a good night out.

This out of the way restaurant was exceptional. Unusual offerings for Bologna includes pork ribs, rabbit, steak as well as the customary pastas. Fabulous food, superb wines, exceptional service and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

My wife and I came here based on a recommendation from a local friend and we were not disappointed. I noticed the comments on TA were a both good and bad, but we decided to give Vicolo Colombina a try. When we came in we were not happy to sit near the door since a cold draft hit us each... More

The cuisine is classic Bolognese - with a *slightly* modern touch (think "mortadella souffle"). But, if you want the classics, they have those too - Tortellini in Brodo, gramigna con salsiccia, etc., all of which are stellar. The interior does generate a wee bit of cognitive dissonance - its got the whole finnish/modern/clean look going right in the historic center... More

It is a pretty restaurant where special attention is given to details. It is managed by very efficient and fast young staff. The atmosphere is lovely and the traditional bolognese dishes are good but not exceptional. The wine list is vast and interesting. The prices are in line with other reataurants in the area.

We had a simple lunch at this restaurant - two traditional pasta dishes. They were very well prepared, and our waiter suggested an excellent wine to accompany them. Service was friendly and helpful. The menu was small but looked interesting. Although located on a quiet street, it is very convenient for sightseers touring the central part of the city.

Liked the ambiance, was able to walk in in a Wednesday evening. The savory soufflé was great, and liked the tortellini in broth. Companion had deer tartare, which was...a huge pile of raw deer. A bit much, he could only eat about half of it. Overall a nice experience.
