This is a small restaurant in a narrow side street near the main square. We stumbled on it by chance and decided to try it as there was a free table outside. It seemed to be busy mainly with locals rather than tourists which I always take to be a good sign. The quality of the food was excellent -... More

Small, intimate place with very good food, nice wine selection, and very nice staff. The entrees are creative and delicious. Prices were very reasonable given the quality of the food!

We had a big dinner at Vicolo Colombina for the end of our trip. We had a good experience overall, with excellent service (especially the wine recommendation) and delicious starters and primi platti. We were disappointed by the mains, though - we ordered the ribs (which were fine, but nothing special) and the aubergine parmigiana which we didn't like at... More

We dined twice in this cozy restaurant during our stay in Bologna. They serve a slightly refined version of local classics. Good wine list and friendly waiters. I would definitely recommend it if you want a great dinner 10 steps from the Basilica di San Petronio.

We were lucky to find this restaurant. The food was very good - we particularly liked the stuffed rabbit. I cannot eat dairy foods and the staff were helpful to ensure that the items on the menu could be tweaked by the chef so I could eat them.

When I finally concede d I didn't know how to get where we were going, we looked up the address, only to find the restaurant was closed Mondays... We had passed... More

The restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel. It's small but feels very homey. We saw quite a few locals (judging from the way the service staff greet them). The menu is not extensive, but that's fine. The restaurant can concentrate in what it does best. Both Tortellini with creamy cheese topped with artichoke as well as Bolognese... More

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. It was informal dining with some lovely local dishes. The staff were welcoming and very helpful, spoke good English and helped us make our menu selections. The menu isn't extensive but we easily found something to our taste. The wine was also good and the staff gave some helpful... More

A small restaurant, modern decor, with excellent food and friendly and efficient service. Made a error on one dish on our order - hugely apologetic but in fact the dish my husband was served was extremely good so it was not a problem. Good wine list as well - would definitely go again
