We had dinner here last night, 7.30 reservation. We were early diners but it filled up by 8pm. This is a local type of trattoria, filled with regular local diners, most seemed known to the staff. We were made very welcome by the excellent wait staff, who had perfect english. The food was terrific, with a good selection of dishes and a good wine list. We ate very well and enjoyed it very much.

Thank you Andrea at Taste of Bologna for this recommendation, we wanted a good restaurant were we could eat straightforward food and having done the food tour that day not eat two much, well that didn't work as we went for the works, the full three courses. This is a very nice restaurant not a massive menu which we like as its shows that there is attention paid to the food, our starters were delicious , tortellini , ragu all good, we had roast rabbit for our main courses a favourite and well cooked. Decent wine list and amazing prices, but then I'm used to London. If you want a straight forward restaurant that does good food with really nice staff then this is the place.

We called to reserve a table and we think it’s possible they set up an extra table just to accommodate us that evening! We considered ourselves very fortunate because many, many would-be diners were turned away and told that there were no openings for several days as we sat there that night. This is delicious, Bolognese fare at its best—tortellini un brodo, tortellone, and tagliatelle al ragu served with pride in an elegant, simple atmosphere. One of the best meals we had in Italy, and some of the best flavors of Bologna. We would visit again and highly recommend. This is why we travel to Bologna!!

We were recommended by a friend to try this very simple restaurant, filled with locals. We were greeted warmly by all the Staff and what followed was a rare glimpse into fine Italian dining. The pasta (in all its guises….tortellini in brodo, tortellini stuffed with ricotta, home made spaghetti with roasted vegetables and ricotta, tagliatelle with bolognaise ragu) was sublime! We tried a plateful of friggione - stewed onions in a tomato sauce, crescents of the lightest pastry stuffed with ricotta and a plate of courgettes stuffed with meat-all delicious and homemade. Believe it or not, we made room for stewed plums with creamy vanilla ice cream, an Italian trifle and a slice of rice cake. For all this….the bill came to 69 Euros per couple! We also drank a bottle of sensational Valpolicella. Oh my goodness! It was a wonderful experience

Our host recommend this restaurant in Bologna and with only two days to visit we went for dinner. Booking a table was very simple and easy and we were greeted by the two friendly staff. Chiro looked after us all evening and he was very attentive and kind and made our evening memorable:) His recommendations for wine and dessert were fantastic! We tried a variety of dishes typical of Bologna and we weren’t disappointed. If you are visiting you must try the friggione which just melts in your mouth :)

Very nice atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent and spoke very good English (our Italian is not great!). The food was brilliant - probably the best pasta we had all holiday, and the torta fritta with meats and cheese is a very generous portion.

Had dinner at this local Trattoria - delicious food at a reasonable price given the quality (€80 euros for two generously sized courses each and a litre of wine). Waiting staff very friendly.

We had a lovely meal here. We had trattoria bolognese, veal cutlet, zucchini polpetine and delicious onion and tomatoes. Had two bottles of wine and the cost was 74 EURO. A real bargain for a nice meal with great serivce.

We were referred here by our airbnb host and it was hands-down, the best meal we had in Bologna! Simple, QUALITY ingredients handled with the care and respect that these traditional recipes deserve! The tortellini in broth was OUT OF THE WORLD and my son, who absolutely loves ragu said it was the best he's ever had (he ordered a second bowl, it was so good!). We also had the polpetone (meatloaf) and the friggione with the egg on top. Everything was amazing. Also of note are the extremely reasonable prices for such amazing food. Don't miss the zuppa inglese or the traditional rice cake for dessert. Wish we had had a chance to go back!

A small restaurant that was recommended by an Italian app. Reservations are probably a good idea. We were late for our appointed time, but they kindly accommodated us. It helped we were a party of two. It was a Friday night and is popular with large groups. The service slowed a little when two large tables showed up within 10 minutes of each other, but we had already eaten and were not in a hurry. And if we were, we could have flagged them down. We were the only tourists, which was nice. I speak some Italian but the staff speaks excellent English. I appreciated that they asked which language menu we preferred. I had passatelli in brodo, which was light and lovely. My husband had a large, sliced polpotone, which was like a really great meatloaf, with some excellent onions. They explained to us how the onions were made, we loved them so much! We had a peach and gelato dessert which was delicious. Everything was great, I would return.

We had a delicious meal at this traditional Bolognese restaurant tucked away in a quiet arcade but a short walk from the centre. I had delicious tortellini in brodo and, then, friggione with a fried egg on top. I had not come across friggione before. It comprised very slowly cooked white onion with tomato. It was light and really tasty. I asked the owner the secret of the recipe and he said very slow cooking of the onions and the right tomatoes, not watery ones. My husband had very fresh butterfly pasta (farfalle) with peas, artichokes and asparagus followed by liver and onions. He then had a sublime Zuppa Inglese. The flavours melded together so well and the different consistencies of soft cake and firmer chocolate were unusual but perfect. This was fine regional cooking in an attractive space. We were the only non-Italians there but the owners spoke English and were very helpful and hospitable.

Closer to a 4.5. This is a very nice little Trattoria. It is great that is seems to be tucked away in a hidden spot, but is actually quite close to the Piazza Maggiore. The restaurant definitely has a local feel, and the service was friendly and accommodating. I found the restaurant also to be a very good value. The Crescentina with Assorted Meats and Squarquerone is especially recommended. I have seen places with more variety of meats, but what was offered was really tasty. The actual bread is amazing though. Warm, pillowy, crispy, but not greasy at all. We also had an excellent special of thin Tagliatelle with Artichokes. The only miss was the Panna Cotta which I am afraid was a touch over baked. Over all definitely recommended for a quiet, reasonable, and tasty dinner of true Bolognese specialties.
