intimate and delicious

Cosy restaurant with delicious food. Every dish is accurately plated and served. Indicated for romantic meals mainly, but I generally go there with friends as well. One of the best in Bologna.

Il Canone is a place where locals go for a romantic meal; Almost all diners were couples. But the owner/staff were welcoming to us Americans, too.

The atmosphere in the place was friendly.
