Beautiful dishes that taste as good as they look! Great food experience with local cuisine that delivers on tastiness and presentations. Very friendly staff in a cosy location, with both great specials and a menu that offers something for everyone. It's always a pleasure when "spicy" on the menu actually means spicy! If we had more days in Bologna we'd... More

The food was good, but the place is hot like hell. The owner/waiter told us to have two splits at maximum power. Actually They were not working, I would prefer he to be more honest with us.

Have been a customer since 15 years and there has not been one time when the food was less than excellent. A bit out of the regional traditionalism, the food is always superbly served with some unusual recipes. It is my favorite place in town and I can only recommend it. Moreover, the owners are a delicious couple that will... More

Cosy restaurant with delicious food. Every dish is accurately plated and served. Indicated for romantic meals mainly, but I generally go there with friends as well. One of the best in Bologna.

The place, located approximately 1 km out of the city wall, has few tables and the atmosphere is very pleasant. In spite of its size, the restaurant offers a pretty various menu. Appetizers are in the 8-10 euro range, first course in 10 to 14 and second go from 15 to 24. Desserts around 6 euros. The dishes are not... More

Beautiful intimate restaurant with fantastic food/service. Every dish we had was over-the-top delicious. We ordered from the "specials board." Il Canone is a place where locals go for a romantic meal; Almost all diners were couples. But the owner/staff were welcoming to us Americans, too. The owner took a lot of time to explain the specials chalkboard to us in... More

Il Connone is neighborly, but the work Paolo, Luca and Raffaella produce meals would match any in Bologna, and any other. The hospitality of the staff made us comfortable, especially with our marginal Italian, Paolo explained the two dinners: one was a fish theme, and the second we had meat and pasta supremo! The atmosphere in the place was friendly.
