We turned up as a party of 4 without a reservation but they found us a table and the waiter suggested the "starter" which had to be at least a dozen different items each of which was delicious - we then had the 3 pasta sampler and couldn't eat another bite, meaning we missed the dessert cart which we were...

Based on the enthusiastic reviews about this restaurant's desserts on TripAdvisor - we decided to visit just for a dessert. The waiter was not pleased when he found out that we didn't want to eat anything else - after all this is a restaurant not a dessert place. After a discussion with his boss he allowed us to stay -...

We found the food acceptable but on the uninteresting side at this unpretentious , friendly pubby place obviously very popular with a younger crowd. Large servings of appetizers and desserts are available and the price is right Given the high cooking standards in Bologna they couldnt survive if they were bad, but I would not recommend as a foodie destination.

Good spot if you're looking for an abundance of local food. Came recently with a large group (we booked the entire restaurant) and enjoyed a set meal - appetizers, pasta course, and desserts. No secondi, nor was there room for it. Pastas were delicious, and the range of desserts meant there was something to suit everyone. Vegetarians might have had... More

Dined there twice in this very local Italian dinery. Its one of the best we have been to in Bologna with its reasonable pricing. The menu is very basic which we prefer and dont create much confusion to what to order. Taglietella served was delicious and we also ordered beef slices which was also well done. You should try their... More

I got the cappelletti in brodo, which were EXCELLENT, and pasta with sausage ragu, very good, too. The waiter recommended the dessert platter,... More

The food was OK, but I must say that I have never been pushed so hard to order more food and then eat and leave quickly. We ordered the most expensive bottle of wine on the menu to try and compensate for now having ordered a multi-course meal and that obviously did not help. After about one hour from arrival... More

Visited the restaurant with my family after having spent few days in Bologna and I must say we had here the best food. The waiters were very nice and helpful and I greatly appreciated the kindness and patience they show toward our kids. The food was very nice; nothing fancy but authentic and genuine Bolognese food, made with fresh ingredients.... More

Visited with my wife and friends. We had a fantastic meal. We went for the pasta taster option and tried the lasagne, tortelloni and tagliatelle with ragù. They were fantastic! The main course was also very good. The wine we went for was San Giovese which was very nice and the desserts were all fresh, homemade and tasty! Overall, we... More

Lasagna was very good. Steak was overcooked dry, even though we ordered it medium rare! When we asked the waiter he denied responsibility and said this is medium rare in Italy, he did not take back the steak or appologize. That is a service foul in my view, overshadowing other posotive things. Maybe this was a single event, other reviews... More
