Not so bad.

Had breakfast here every morning during our stay in Bologna. Since we were provided coupons from the B&b where we are staying. The place is nice with a broad display of different pastries. The ones i've tasted esp the treccia with pistacchio was the bomb. I enjoyed it very much. They also make very... read more

Oh my gosh! We stopped here just to have a drink before dinner... So of course, waiter brings the little snacks with drinks but then comes with a whole pizza with it! No extra charge...just part of the snacks. In addition they have a whole little buffet at the bar if you're still hungry! Waiters were nice and food was... More

I was expecting to be blown away with an explosion of flavors from the gelato to the pastry.....but it was average at best ...quick and not crowded and they spoke English . So this was a good place to go for a quick snack !

Just walked by this place and it looked buzzy so we stopped in for a drink. We ordered a bottle of wine and then enjoyed enough free bar food to feed us for dinner! Then we got a complimentary pizza too.

I happened by this place on my way back from Ravenna. It was bustling with tables outside and I had a glass of prosecco and some terrifc bar food for 5 euros. They also has a wonderful selection of pasteries. Worth the visit I was there late Nov. Nice lively on the main street.

I walked by and it was bustling. The pastries looked amazing and I figured I could suck down another coffee as an excuse to try a pastry. I was introduced to coffee with sabayon sauce stirred into it. Delicious! It was also fun to stand and watch all the people coming and going....and watching them figuring out (and enjoying) the...
