good option for lunch break

this is a very crowded restaurant at lunch, full of people taking a break from the office. The quality of the food is ok, I think it used to be a bit better, but it is still a good choice for a quick lunch. The staff is very efficient and you can have lunch relatively quickly. Pizzas are very... read more

We found this restaurant just walking around Bologna. We had spent a week in Puglia a couple of years, loved the food so we wanted to try the restaurant. The food was excellent. We had the hot and cold appetizer, meatballs in sauce, pasta with meatballs and veal - all very good as was the service we received. We went... More

This restaurant has a great set, which reminds me the Puglia truly. Thus thanks also to the inner garden with Its tent and grass. Waiters are so kind and they want you feel at ease. However, we order an entrée (bruschette with tomatoes and mozzarella) but they carry a very little quantity and we were 7! So we order another... More

We chose this restaurant after being directed here by a local cheese store vendor, as they were serving burrata daily. The street and outside of the restaurant doesn't look much but it is what's in that counts. We came in early, 8PM, and were sited without having a reservation, although we were asked about it. Restaurant was empty at that... 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

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, purée with chicory and more. Everything was good!...

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
