Lovely greeting, friendly service, I had a steak cooked over their open fire, my son had grilled chicken and daughter macchernoncini. The food was great. Well worth a visit if looking for something a... More

Best place to eat before heading to the airport. Fantastic service. The pasta was delectable, the rage sauce one of the best I have had. We tried the pasta with the courgettes which was amazing and so different. Also ordered steak which was cooked to perfection.

After the succulent start had mix of meat with potatoes... More

We chose this restaurant based on the location to the airport (and nearby hotel) for the conclusion of a one day meeting. Great quality food, excellent grilled meat, good service. I would choose this restaurant again.

In an old farmhouse close to the airport, Nonno Rossi grills its meat on an open grill, both winter and summer. Try the grilled vegetables platter or the potatoes, to go along with the beef. Definitely worth the trip from the city center!

I use to go there very often after land or before take off in Bologna. Excellent food based in bolognese food and a grill with good meat. I recommend the tagliatelle or the Ravioli in brodo. The wine list is very large and the service is specially fine. Price is good.
