It looks rough from the outside, but get past that and it's a nice place for a drink. Good selection of drinks and friendly staff. Didn't eat as we were booked in somewhere else.

Called here after a full afternoon in Bologna as it was close to our hotel. The selection of beers is extensive and the food, while fairly simple, was excellent. Service very good too with a background of rock music. Would definitely recommend.

Landed in Bologna late and was worried there wouldn't be good places for food open, but this place pleasantly surprised me. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were all top notch, not to mention reasonably priced. Would definately reccomend this place to anyone.

Being there twice night in a row with my family, the pub has a rather limited choice for the food, but an interesting list for beers, but everything was good absolutely priceworthy. Both times we dined there quite early, close to the opening hours and...More
