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.

Veal served with tuna mayonnaise? Absolutely! and it was wonderful too. This was a great lunch of interesting food - on the pricy side but with helpful staff that was fine. The fig sorbet was simply awesome.

We had had our fill of pasta, salumi and cotoletta and wanted somewhere special for our last night in Bologna. Being August a lot of the recommended places were closed so we were delighted to find this lovely restaurant just round the corner from our rented apartment. It's location in a charming little street was a bonus and we were... More

It has been some time since I have fully enjoyed every single dish, but it happened when we were having dinner at Battibecco. The service was absolutely great and we have enjoyed every minute of this great dinner. So if you are looking for a great meal, look no further!

We wanted a special place for a delicious Italian meal and were amazed that this restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel. We all had three courses all of which were served with great style and beautiful presentation. The suckling pig I had was really tender and tasted delicious. We had a memorable meal which was a bit... More

Found this place by chance and very glad we did Got a space outside which was definitely worth it. Service was excellent - very speedy, attentive without being oppressive. Food was also delicious - amuses bouches were a nice touch. I had pan fried duck liver and my partner had scallops, both were cooked and presented beautifully. Mains were similarly... More

We visited late on a Tuesday night following TripAdvisor reviews. The staff were welcoming, willing to help us choose meals and explain ingredients (essential for a dairy allergy) and also professional - it was a thoroughly different experience to the run of the mill trattoria. The menu had different options and interesting meals. Price quite expensive at 20-30euro for first... More
