Enjoyed a lovely meal with good service. Luckily they speak good English so could help us choose our meal. Excellent and extensive wine list. All in all a good find.

this is a gem right next to San Petronio. The Taglatelle e Risotto which I had on 2 visits were incredible. It is a small place operated by young people who are doing a great job.

We enjoyed our first meal here so much that we came back a second night even though we were only in Bologna for a short time. The staff is young and friendly and very relaxed. The food is excellent and is prepared with great care, flavorful and presented beautifully. The atmosphere is lively. I would describe it as traditional Bolognese... More

Went as a couple on September 24th. Uncomfortably warm, even though they had air conditioning. Small but good menu and the food was decent. Inattentive wait staff. Would not go back

Called in here looking for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. A bit hidden but a gem to find. Food was not cheap but very well presented and excellent flavours. By the time we left the place was buzzing with locals and tourists and all seemed to be enjoying the place. Enjoy.....

Our B&B recommended this restaurant. We asked for a recommendation for a local red. One of the staff came over with a local cab but did not offer up the price. I suppose we should have asked but I read earlier reviews on here that when this happened the wine was generally between 18-20 euros. I figured as long as... More

This restaurant offers an exciting interpretation on Italian food imaginatively presented and offering complex flavours. I did feel more time and attention was paid to the Italian guests. Minimal information was given when we made enquiries about a wine choice which was awkwardly poured leaving a trail of red drops on the cloth. No engagement beyond serving us the food.... More

We were recommended to try this restaurant by a lady in the tourist office, when I asked her for her favourite place to dine in Bologna. We tried just walking up on a Monday evening, but the restaurant was fully booked, so we made a reservation for the Wednesday evening. The young staff were extremely helpful, and service was excellent... More

It's not always easy to accommodate a group of 10 or more, certainly not in a small restaurant. We got a long nice table. Only 1 waiter understood and spoke english. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Vicolo Colombina doesn't serve house wine but has a nice wine menu with lots of possibilities in several price ranges. We had... More
