Looking for great food, looking for great service, well here it is. This family run place is just lovely, we were waited on by the older man (father?) and he was well spoken in English and spent time to help us understand the menu and mad some fantastic suggestions. When the meals arrived he also explained anything we went too... More

The decor is homely though the room is large and airy. The lady of the house recited to us the starters and main courses of the day and we went along with her suggestions. Our first courses were excellent fiori di zucca and a salad of artichoke, Parmesan and rocket which we greedily shared. The main course was roast veal.... More

We were looking for somewhere to sit and rest our aching feet after a long morning walking around the many sights of Bologna. We came across this Osteria and dropped anchor for lunch at an outside table under the portico. The waiter spoke some English but when we ordered in Italian, the lady of the house took over and, in... More

Out first night in Bologna, we made our way to this recommended restaurant. Staff were all very friendly and the food we had was nice enough but the portions were very small for the cost and we left still feeling hungry, Disappointing

After spending a few days in Bologna, my husband and I were surprised at the general lack of creativity among restaurants. Traditional Bolognese dishes, prepared exactly the same way, every day - some quite disappointing. We were therefore overjoyed to encounter La Traviata. Every dish was better than the last, and there was a willingness, even enthusiasm, to tailor the... More

Family run traditional Bolognese restaurant that is well worth visiting. Mother was great, very friendly and clearly passionate about her restaurant and food, and takes time to compose a menu suited to your personal tastes. Pasta was the highlight, tagliatelle with bacon and mushrooms and tortellini with pumpkin absolutely superb and as good as any we had in bologna and... More
