Perfect for a low key date night

I really enjoyed this restaurant. My husband and I wanted a quiet night with authentic Italian food and we found it here. The husband and wife are very sweet and the pasta is homemade. Make sure to leave room for dessert, the chocolate cake was to die for.

Absolutely loved Traviatta, my wife stayed in Bologona for two days and went to Traviatta both nights. We were recommended this place by the owner of the place we were stayed at. Everything we had Traviatta was fantastic both food and wine, starter, main course and desert. Everyone who worked there was friendly and offered us things that were not... More

This is what our Airbnb host told us about la Traviata. I don't know if that's true, but I do know that our first dinner was so spectacular we returned the next night (we were only in Bologna for two nights). The atmosphere is very low key, with a family feel. But the food...well, the food is homey, sure, but... More

Its a wonderful little restaurant just a wee bit south of Piazza Maggiore. The owners are friendly and attentive, and extremely knowledgable about their food. There is a menu, but they'll happily rattle off what is _actually_ available (over and above the menu), and _those_ are the items that you want to go for. In particular, see if they have... More

We had been here 17 years ago for the 1st time and it's still the same lovely family run restaurant and you feel like a local. The food is made with the best italian ingredients. We had 2 lunches at la Traviata last week and we were the only tourists. This is a favorite with the locals.

This was our favorite restaurant in Bologna. We loved the family atmosphere, we loved the decor, and of course, the food was just amazing. I had the best pasta (pumpkin lasagna) I've ever had there. But everthing we had was delicious - The antipasta was delicious, the artichoke salad was delicious, the meat dishes were delicious, and the two desserts... More

This restaurant is run by a local family, and they're all really friendly. The food is delicious and the restaurant is always busy, full with locals. The menu isn't really necessary, because the owner always suggest specials that aren't there and they're very accommodating with changes to the dishes. Not to be missed while in bologna!

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.
