This was our third visit to Trattoria Battibecco over the past 18 months or so. This time to Bologna was a short shopping trip. Like our previous meals this one was superb. A very nice selection off of both meat and seafood menus. Excellent wines offered. All for a very good price and value. Impeccable service. We will always visit... More

This restaurant disappointed us because it was our last night, and the very best food that we had in Bologna over five days and ten meals. Several dishes were the very best of kind that I have ever had; the best salad ever, the best fried calamari ever. Anywhere in the world. The pastas were great. We shared an entree... More

This trattoria is known by the well-to-do Bolognese as an intimate, fine-dining experience that does not disappoint. The selective menu is a challenge for diners, as each mouth-watering option is appealing; it means you have no choice to return! Which is a happy outcome of the whole experience.

Went to Battibecco with some friends on a saturday evening. We shared an entree, duck liver, which was fantastic, then i had homemade pasta and a chocolate mousse. Every dish was delucious and beautifully presented. Service was great too, though i'd personally preferred staff smiled a bit more. Prices arent low but that is in line with the very high... More

We have eaten seven restaurant meals since our arrival in Italy, and this was the best! Trattoria Battibecco's menu has a side for meat and side for fish - we tried the fish side and shared 2 appetizers and 2 main courses. We highly recommend the shrimp burgers in the appetizers and the roasted Turbo for the main course -... More

Food was excellent, staff attentive and unlike some other restaurants there was enough room between tables not to have to listen to other people's conversations. The manager, who spoke perfect English, allowed me to practice my limited Italian when chatting and ordering, thank you. We are going back for our last night in Bologna. Do make a booking!

We went here on the last night of our stay in Bologna for a birthday meal. We were greeted by the friendly manager who spoke perfect English. The dining room is elegant and understated. We both had a pasta to start and then fillet steak in puff pastry. An amuse bouche was also supplied. I had profiteroles to finish. All... More

Situated down a rather unprepossessing alley close to the Piazza Maggiore that would be an ideal location for an Italian Film Noir, Trattoria is something of a misnomer for this elegant and up-market small restaurant. The number of tables is limited with space between them; and most of the customers were quite smartly dressed. The decor is interesting with objéts... More

Everything about this restaurant is just superb. The food is amazing. It is pricier than most restaurants in Bologna but you get what you pay for. Attention to detail is spot on and the staff is friendly whilst unobtrusive. If you are in Bologna for a special occasion, this is the place you should go to.

Thank Mark B
