I went for dinner with family as we wanted to try some traditional food and we had heard from friends that this was a good place. We were not disappointed: the food - which is traditional from southern Italy - was really good (we tried several mains as well as desserts), the service was prompt and friendly, and the restaurant...

This is an excellent restaurant with a beautiful back courtyard area. Pizzas are superb with unusual toppings - we had the likes of turnip greens, broad bean paste and chicory on ours. Service is attentive and wine list well priced. It is slightly away from the very centre square area, but well worth the 10/15 minute stroll. Ask for the... More

But it was really delicious the plate but the quantity was too few, after i finished i was still hungry and i paid 15 euros.... More

We found this restaurant just walking around Bologna. We had spent a week in Puglia a couple of years, loved the food so we wanted to try the restaurant. The food was excellent. We had the hot and cold appetizer, meatballs in sauce, pasta with meatballs and veal - all very good as was the service we received. We went... More

this is a very crowded restaurant at lunch, full of people taking a break from the office. The quality of the food is ok, I think it used to be a bit better, but it is still a good choice for a quick lunch. The staff is very efficient and you can have lunch relatively quickly. Pizzas are very good... More

This restaurant has a great set, which reminds me the Puglia truly. Thus thanks also to the inner garden with Its tent and grass. Waiters are so kind and they want you feel at ease. However, we order an entrée (bruschette with tomatoes and mozzarella) but they carry a very little quantity and we were 7! So we order another... More

We chose this restaurant after being directed here by a local cheese store vendor, as they were serving burrata daily. The street and outside of the restaurant doesn't look much but it is what's in that counts. We came in early, 8PM, and were sited without having a reservation, although we were asked about it. Restaurant was empty at that... More

As a novice in Italy and being a little disappointed at just walking in to a couple of other places, we sought advice from a local and were given this address. We weren't disappointed! The staff realised they had English-only speakers and were attentive rather than dismissive, explaining everything on the menu (and that was a lot), and answering our... More

It is my second time in this restaurant. We went in three during the week. Both times I started with a delicious appetizer (Apuli terra freddo e caldo). The first part consisted of an assortment of cheeses, olives and cold cuts. Later, it came a dish consisting of small samples of Parmiggiana, purée with chicory and more. Everything was good!...
