Fresh pastas with a traditional bolognese, another with sausage - both excellent. And slow cooked pork ribs with cabbage that was sublime. Good wine selections The room is all white - a little cold but not sterile. Casual atmosphere. Service is slow. Only 2 wait staff for 2 rooms so if waiting bugs you, don't go. But go for the... More

We loved this restaurant and felt it was a nice break from the more traditional meals we'd been eating since we'd arrived in Italy a week prior. The atmosphere was very clean, bright and beautiful and the service was terrific. We began the Potatoes and Mortadella soufflè with Parmesan cheese sauce and balsamic vinegar. Unfortunately we split it -- I'd... More

Stale bread was not a good beginning, and neither were the scruffily dressed staff who did not fit the snazzy modern décor. They were too rushed to give proper attention; service was slow and meals came out in random order. Limited menu; food OK but not up to to the high standards of other restaurants in Bologna. Wine unremarkable. No... More

This restaurant is in a charming narrow street a couple of minutes walk from the Piazza Maggiore. The interior is bright and comfortable and the main decorations are huge black and white photos, including one of Marlene Dietrich. We started our meal with cannoli stuffed with a lemon flavoured soft goat cheese which were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. For... More

We had a great dinner here with some new friends we met on our trip. The food was all very fresh and local. The pasta was especially good. The lasagna was perfect. Great spot fir a real local dining experience.

I attended a business dinner here in a group of about 20 so I couldn't give my full attention to the food. As in most places in Bologna the food is somewhat traditional with a slight twist but if you go there once a year like me you would never get bored. The charcuterie selection and the tongue I ordered... More

We ate here on our honeymoon and the food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get a table without having to book - arrive at 7pm if you have not booked to make sure you get seats. We had 2 courses both of which were delicious - look at my photos! It was good value for money. Before it... More

The food was simply great. The staff were attentive with fantastic wine recommendations and high quality food! The menu offerings are not unusual, this is relatively simple food but done incredibly well and with a gourmet twist. I enjoyed our time there that I would love to go back. It was the best food experience of our two week trip... More

Three of us split a large antipasto platter which had 5 or 6 types of meats and some aged parmesan cheese. It was delicious. We then had two different pastas and one pork dish, and loved all three of them. Add in a reasonably priced bottle of very good sangiovese, and this was one of the top meals of our... More
