Delicious local cuisine with nice ambiance

Solid very good local cuisine. We liked it better than the more famous Drogeria de la Rosa. Waitstaff knew enough English to help us but the place is not at all touristy.

We went to this place led by the positive reviews on yelp. The food we tried in this trattoria was ok, but not spectacular. However, I should acknowledge that we didn't order meat or pasta, something the trattoria specializes on, according to the reviews. We had an antipasto of fried vegetables, also fish and a platter of cheese. Being not... More

Recomended to us by a fried from Bologna living abroad, it still blew us away even with higher expectations. Great atmosphere, very kind and friendly service and the food is excellent - perfectly prepared home made pastas with all the fresh ingredients. After dinner last night we're going back for lunch today.

Truly outstanding, small, mid-priced osteria with superb house-made pasta (plus lots more) as well as very pleasant, efficient service. Best of the three highly rated (on T/A) restaurants we visited during our Bologna visit. Let them tell you what's good the day you visit and trust me that it will be one of the most flavorful, satisfying meals you will... More

We ordered our meal entirely off the specials menu and it was fantastic. The host was so welcoming and enthusiastic about the food. For our starter we had deep fried stuffed courgette flowers which were absolutely delicious. I would definitely go back. The staff could speak a bit of English but enough so we could understand what was available and... More

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague and it was awesome! The staff are friendly and since we didn't speak any Italian, we asked them to surprise us and they certainly did not disappoint. The fresh mushroom and celery salad, the fresh homemade pasta, the lovely dessert. 85euros for two, we ate outside and enjoyed the experience. A lovely family... More

Wonderful food and friendly service. From my one visit it seems a favourite haunt of the locals (always a good sign) - as far as I could hear I was the only non-Italian speaker in there on that particular evening although of course there may have been other foreigners out of earshot. Certainly helps to be able to understand a... More

The food was well prepared and the service was excellent. It is a bit pricey but the quality is good. It was 80€ for 2 people starter, main and glass of wine.

Can confirm everyone's view that the food was very tasty at this family-run, homely restaurant with their freshly made pasta dishes and wonderful desserts at reasonable prices. If you are going on a Saturday, make sure you make a reservation as it gets very busy. We didn't and therefore ate outside in the month of May - it was a... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with obviously a great following - we were happy we had reservations as they were turning people away. We started with zucchini flower appetizer and at the suggestions of the owner, raviolis stuffed with a rich, red sauce. Lovely glasses of a local merlot matched our primo piatto perfectly. For dessert we shared a... More
