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.

Stopped here while visiting Bologna & found to be quite good. Pastas where absolutely delicious & service was good. No English menu which is good folks! Simple good Bolognese fair.

Except for some primi, that are somewhat tastier, the rest is tasteless. My caprese salad was shameful. Prices are moderate but too much for the quality offered.

Zup57, Proprietario at Trattoria Tony, responded to this review

We are sorry you were disappointed, but probably there was a misunderstanding with our waiter. What you are describing is not the specialty Tortellini , but Tortelloni and they must absolutely be made with ricotta and dressed with butter or tomato sauce. We are sorry , tortellini are a different . Our ragu is the recipe of Bologna, in Italy... More

It was a trattoria just as I expected. Owner Stefano was on hand to take our order, offer recommendations and answer questions. His mother was easily seen cutting fresh meats. We were recommended the lasagna, which was good. However the tagliatelle al ragù was incredible. You could taste the quality of the noodle and ingredients. My husband enjoyed it so... More
