"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

House wine could be better but... 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.
