Another hotel reccomendation. Slightly outside town centre but within walking distance. Very much a locals restaurant and packed. Food very good . Husband and wife team with wife doing most of work with ordering and serving and husband handling wine and payment. Wife wanted one more glass of wine and we were surprised when he insisted upon opening another bottle... More

A great saturday lunch with family and friends. Very good starters (ham, cheese, gnocco fritto, and more), amazing first course (pappardelle and tortello)...and a great cake (mascarpone). Warmly suggested.

Mitch and the boys had a great late night dinner with friends and customers in this local little gem! Delicious pumpkin stuffed ravioli with a great anti pasta and bacon wrapped, pan seared mozzarella to start. Everything was great, nice bottle of Valpollacella and white table linens.

Very cosy and busy restaurant, frequented mostly by locals. The menu lists mainly Bolognese dishes. But if you talk to the owner, it turns out there are much more dishes that are not on the menu. So check to see what else is served. The food is great!

The owner and his wife was very friendly. Even though my husband and I had no idea what to order, we told them what we were looking for and they surprised us with amazing appetizers, wine, and best pasta ever!! They also brought out some dessert which we ate it within 30 seconds because it was so delish!! All the... More

Dinner last night at Osteria La Traviata, recommended for its fresh, house-made pasta. They have a menu, but it turns out to be better to just let the cheerfully motherly co-owner make recommendations (my wife's knowledge of Italian helped a lot there..). We had a delicious appetizer of peppers and zucchini in a kind of puff pastry/batter, followed by tagliatelle... More

Had the misfortune to eat here when being shut out from our desired spot. The owner server pushed the expensive specials on us and although we know this strategy went along since our treatment in Italy had been so kind this trip. We make a better, more tender Osso Bocco at home. We were also overcharged for the number of... More

My friend and I were holidaying in Bologna in September and stumbled across this lovely family run hotel. We loved their fresh very tasty food so much so that we went back the following night. Great wine and we certainly didn't think it was pricey. I still dream of the fig ice cream!!!

We searched for a nice place to have our last dinner in Bologna and we called for a table, there was only one left so we went....walked 20 minutes and as we enter we felt so welcome! The owner which was our main waitress and she recommended the dishes, was so funny and friendly that it made our stay there... More
