All fresh pasta's

Dear All, When you think about Italian food after pasta what you think?...PROSCIUTTO! It's unbelieveble how good the cold cuts platters are! There are so many kind you cannot imagine.

A casual eatery in a hidden corner of Bologna. Menu is simple yet excellent. Huge portion of meat and cheese platter, 3 types of fresh handmade pasta that changes daily, and excellent wine at reasonable price. Had the best tortellini and tortelloni ever. Staff are very friendly and spoke good English. Space is small inside but garden at the rear... More

I loved the restaurant the minute I entered, the deco was very rustic but elegant, the aroma was simply mouth watering. The owner is extremely friendly and always recommend the best dishes according to yr taste. We had a complete meal with antipasto (tagliere of course), pasta gramigna and meat . Their wine selection is super, too. A must if... More

Altho a bit cramped inside the service and food were both excellent and they had good, inexpensive vino de casa, both red and white. The garden was only open on weekends but we'd try to sit there if we ever return.

Busy and bustling, the restaurant looks tiny from outside! Inside, it's a warren of lovely rooms and corners. The staff are charming, helpful and make time to chat even though they are rushed off their feet! The food is local, simple and of excellent quality. There is a huge range of salami 'plates' offering different combinations, then home made pasta... More

The taglieri with salumi and pappa al pomodoro are really good, the garden inside is a little jewel but the price for what they offer is a bit expensive.

I dined at the restaurant with a group of 10 friends. We booked a table in the garden as the evening was warm. Once we found the street - it's narrow and likely you would keep walking but do not be put off. The restaurant has a few tables under porticos on the street but the real jewel is the... More

We came here based on the advice of our host and can highly recommend the place to anyone. The atmosphere is fantastic, service is great, you can barely see any other tourists. We had lasagne and tortellini ricotta - both delicious with a bottle of nice red wine and two desserts and paid just 44 €. We are thinking on... More

Very good meals and the adviced wine is excellent. The service is good, waiters explained us every meal. The boss offered us a glass of limoncello at the end and he asked us some questions. We were lucky because we had dinner in the beautiful garden in the back of the restaurant. I recommend this place to everyone going ho... More
