We went to this restaurant for lunch. They didnt have a menu so the waitress told us what they have. We order tagliatelle con ragu, ravioli, marinated beef and roasted vegetables. Tagliatelle were fine, ravioli too small portion, my husband like the beef but for my taste were floating in oil. Vegetables were good. Price was around 30 eur per... More

This is a hidden gem just outside of Bologna that serves up terrific homestyle Italian food. It is very close to the highway and makes a convenient place to stop for passersby. But it was also popular with the townsfolk by all appearances. Our Italian colleague took us to this place for lunch on our way from Milano to Pisa.... More

I've been traveling from Canada to Italy for 8 years now and we always try to find time for this little gem. The pasta is fantastic but the beef is hard to beat. And when it's gone, have the egg! I'll keep going back.

"Half of Bologna comes here for the famous tagliata, the other half comes here for the desserts". I think this is in a nutshell all there is to say about this outstanding family run restaurant just outside Bologna. It is easy to reach it, just take the road towards the Fiera and keep going straight towards Ferrara. Once you get... More

A real find, outside Bologna at Castle Maggiore but worth the effort. A busy osteria frequented by locals, drivers and businessmen near the motorway. Good traditional simple dishes cooked the way the used to and still should do! Good pasta including lasagna and a excellent tagliatelle with honest prices makes it worth a visit. House wine could be better but... More

The pasta was superbe, like it should be, but the most fantastic dish was the filleto di manzo (beaf) : it was just fantastic. The taste was spot on and it melted on you tongue....the best beaf I ever had. The should however make a bit more room, because you are cramped a bit inside the restaurant. To much tables... More

What an exquisite meal!! This trattoria is located in Castel Maggiore, some 10 minute drive from Bologna's centre but it is so worth the drive. This was recommended by our receptionist who also placed a booking as this place is very much sought by locals. And indeed it was jam packed. It doesn't have a fixed menu and dishes are... More

this is my second time eating at this place and it was stunning the volume and quality of the food is second to none in Italy that i have ever tasted. We eat and drink like Kings and it all came to 35 Euros, very reasonable for what we eat..... Please try it out.
