We decided to have a drink at this bar and found a table on the footpath. Service was a little slow, but the drinks were all good and the nibbles were ok, mostly locals, so not too touristy.

We called for an afternoon beer to experience a rude and surly barman who initially ignored us. The beer was poor and when I wanted to pay, he continued to chat-up a couple of girls and although he had clearly seen me, I had to interrupt him to pay. This was Bologna at its poorest.

Charming service from a very friendly waiter doing a great job on his own! Lovely bar we had enough free crisps & tapas to substitute for dinner! But we only stopped for a drink. Lovely Friulano!

Either the owners of this restaurant go home every evening wondering how, when they do so few of the things other restaurants do to attract tourists, the place is packed with Brits; or, they are masters of reverse psychology. The menu is not translated into English. Nothing claims to be a typical Bolognese speciality. There are no quaint Italian decorations... More

Try this one, if you are tired of seeing always the same menu in all the different restaurants, they do something different. The risotto with white truffle oil and roast pumpkin seeds was really great. The service was really friendly. The menu is only in Italian, but the waiter took the time to explain everything in good English. It was... More

Came across this randomly. Really nice atmosphere and good choice of drinks. We had a couple of cocktails each and some local lemon custard cake. With ech round of drinks we were offered crisps and then a plate of meats, sarnies, olives etc. At the end we were also given a round of shots with baileys,jaeger and orange. Tasty!
