Wonderful and well served food, especially the guy "calabrese". Warm, comfortable atmosphere and really nice food.

The decoration is simply bad. The 2 pizzas we tried had nice ingredients of good quality. BUT it both of them were not cooked properly. Despite they entered the brick oven, not only they lacked the important crispy texture but they were completely dismantling and the bottom was wet!

You can find a piece of southern italian cuisine here at La Verace. The restaurant is near the train station, so it's quite central. In my opinion you should try their pizza since they have high quality ingredients and the original pizza recipe, which is not as easy as it seems to find! Not very expensive, affordable. Dinner recommended

We were staying nearby and are in this restaurant twice in one week. The pizzas are delicious and the seafood pasta dish was one of the best I've ever had. Staff are really friendly and very attentive. Of all the restaurants we ate in during the week I would rate this one as best for service. I would highly recommend... More

Fantastic food and service was great. House wine is cheap and pizza's were amazing, good value (between 7-12 euros) and great choices, some of the best I've see in Italy. We went early on a Saturday night and the place does get busy so would advise to book and get there early on weekends. It was tricky to find somewhere... More

Very nice restaurant in the center of Bologna. We dropped in for a lunch - my children wanted to eat spaghetti carbonara. There was no this dish in the menu, but chef cooked it for us specially, Yummy! Pasta carbonara and pizzas were excellent as well. Service is very helpful and friendly, staff speaks english.

We went here after reading a blog recommending the place for proper Italian pizza. Pizza comes in many forms, at this place they serve a pizza which is neither paper thin nor "American pan pizza". The pizza has a crispy crust which is soft inside, perfectly made for my taste. We shared a Caprese salad for starters, but a pizza... More
