Part of the Slow Food movement, this small and perfectly formed osteria is a delightful place for local meats, cheeses and wines. We had some creamy mild blue cheese to start, folllowed by gnocchi with sausage and peppers, and tagliatelle with the cured pork leg 'culatello'. We finished with a yummy strawberry tart and a Bolognese rice cake. The service... More

Everyone we met in Bologna was friendly and helpful - except the staff in this restaurant. They separate tourists from locals and from there on in one feels like a second class customer. Right from the start the waiter was 'grumpy', unwelcoming and not in the slightest bit helpful! The food was ok but the staff ruined the meal. They... More

Small place that deserves a visit. Food is really good. They use local ingredients, so the menu has some unique choices.

We had a terrific meal. There are two rooms. Somehow, I think we were in the good room. Two couples - the other couple speak Italian. Our Airbnb host made the reservation. So we had none of the problems that are described in other reviews. We had great charcuterie to start with terrific Parmigiana. The pasta dishes were subtle and... More

Daniele is a genius, this is the temple of food. I have 3 fav restaurants worldwide and this is one of them. If you want to have a lifetime food experience go and enjoy the art of osteria, Italy should be all like this place.. unfortunately it is not.

During two weeks in Bologna I have never experienced such a bad and unacceptable service. Although I have booked personally two days before, no table was reserved. Unfriendly they offered the worst table in the whole restaurant. Asking for an other still available table the owner of this crappy restaurant freaked out and shouted us to go. I have to... More

I never get tired of eating at this fabulous restaurant. A pleasant 10-minute walk from the center of town (Piazza Maggiore), you will need a reservation to dine here. Call them directly or ask your hotel to book for you. You l most likely love anything you order here. The meats on the antipasto plate are out of this world.... More

I will try, in the circumstances, to make this a fair and balanced review. But please be aware that this is not a review of food, service or ambience as we never actually made it to the restaurant. Having booked via Facebook and supplied my phone number to 'complete the reservation' we were looking forward to our visit. At 4pm... More

There are two rooms here, seperated by the street. One looks great, the other not. Whilst welcomed nicely with our basic touristic Italian on entry to the smaller newer room, that;s pretty much where the good service stopped for us. Having seen all the more Italian looking folks in the main room and the more touristic folks in your smaller... More
