In love with Puglia

It is my second time in this restaurant. We went in three during the week. Both times I started with a delicious appetizer (Apuli terra freddo e caldo). The first part consisted of an assortment of cheeses, olives and cold cuts. Later, it came a dish consisting of small samples of Parmiggiana... read more

As a novice in Italy and being a little disappointed at just walking in to a couple of other places, we sought advice from a local and were given this address. We weren't disappointed! The staff realised they had English-only speakers and were attentive rather than dismissive, explaining everything on the menu (and that was a lot), and answering our... More

Yes I know that Bologna is the heart of Emilia Romagna where the cuisine is simply superb. However, if you aren't going to travel south to the region of Puglia then a meal at Officine Degli Apuli is the next best thing. Tucked away on a side street this restaurant offers specialties from Puglia, like Burrata, which we consider to... More

I guess it is one of the best pizza in town. Most probably the only one serving kamut and special pizzas. Service is friendly and very professional. For a perfect dinner with kids or friends

This busy little place is tucked down a small side street with very few other shops or restaurants. It has a nice feel inside, with lots of staff and we were given a warm welcome. The inside is large and it continues out the back of the property and I think there is some outdoor seating for the summer months.... More

The place was a regular modern Italian restaurant, I was taken there by my Italian friends as a selected fancy resto, and it was fancy. The food was good and generous, especially the steaks. When you go there, dont miss the basement lounge, where the wine and cigar store is, it is fantastic.

Place was recommended by colleagues from Bologna and they did recommend well. The place is large with large tables which was great for our group of 10. Friendly staff explained the menu (which was only in Italian that no one of us speaks) and really quick service considering that the place was crowded especially on a Saturday night. So better...

I was taken to this restaurant by a 'local'. A large restaurant, very busy - family groups - traditional decor and food and I'm pretty sure I was the only tourist in the restaurant. Very generous servings - we had an antipasto platter (huge) pasta and then a meat dish - all delicious. Service was very efficient and friendly. A... More

The “Officine Degli Apuli” is located in a lateral street of Via Marconi, a street in Bologna downtown. The cuisine is specialized in “Apulian” dishes but you can also eat pizza. I go to “Officine Degli Apuli” during my lunch break where you can choose from 2 first courses and from 2 second courses and mix them in a unique... More

Very nice place, just a bit noisy because itìs big, the fish is really good, a bit expensive but not above the average in Bologna, good service.
