At the suggestion of our hostess at & Benelli, we ate here and ended up eating dinner here for the four nights we were in Bologna. This is a true Trattoria, frequented by locals for obvious reasons, the food is outstanding, the prices are reasonable and the service and staff is first rate. This family run establishment offers true Bolognase... More

We'd been recommended Tonys for lunch, so we went on Saturday evening at 8.15 without a reservation because we were passing. Unfortunately they had run out of a lot on the menu, so it was antipasti, pasta or steak! The steaks, both medium, were tender but one was bordering on the rare side.

I love this place, where according to my Italian friends, you can find the best tagliatelle al ragu. Personally, I love their :"Bollito" . So delicious. Also, the staff are really professional at Italian standard.

Had a great meal on the patio of this trattoria. Prices are good and the food tasted great! The place was full and mainly by locals which is always a good sign!

I'll keep this short - had a lot of AMAZING meals in Bologna, and I had the absolute best plate of Tortellini al Ragu at this small place. A must if you're panning on visiting Bologna, and especially if you're a foodie!

Very tasty food a nice waiter. I was very pleased with my lasagna al forno, very good pasta. But I must admit I've been totally conquered by the agnelo al forno. This was delicious, with 3 pieces of meat from different part of the lamb. We did not know anything about Italian wine, and the waiter made a very good... More

We spent forever trying to find the right restaurant for our last night in Bologna. Many highly rated ones were booked out, others seemed to have gotten bad reviews of late. Eventually we decided we wanted rabbit, and walked around looking for one that had rabbit on the menu. It turned ou that this one was a stone's throw from... More

My friend who used to live in Bologna recommended this Trattoria. Famous Bolognese spaghetti as well as others (we had cold cuts and salad) were so tasty. If you are looking for a place that serves local cuisine in homely atmosphere, this is it.

If you want to try some delicious authentic Bolognese entrees, then Trattoria Tony is a great place to start. The tagliatelle Bolognese was fantastic and cooked perfectly. We had a table outside, and it was quite busy, but we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere here and wouldn't hesitate to go again. Service was attentive and professional.

Thank Sabre4
