This is a real local bar close to the heart of the old town. We just had beer - Italian ales (did you know they existed?) And they were excellent. That evening we had a lovely greeting by the bar servers and enjoyed the asmosphere in the main room. Its easy to miss as you walk down the street and... More

The couple that run this bar must be the nicest bar-owners in Bologna. They serve fantastic beer with a huge range of different types available (German, Belgian, Italian). At the moment they have draught Augustiner Oktoberfest 2016 beer. They also serve some excellent Italian wine. The menu has a lot of choice with traditional Italian food plus some extra German...

My partner and I came in here to see a football game and have a beer. The waiters were perfectly nice and helpful. The selection of beers is great, about a dozen draft beers and loads of bottles, and not just peroni (which is the standard beer in Italy). The frozen daiquiri were excellent. We also had a sandwich which... More

Chimay, Kwak, Cuvée des trolls on tap and many other Belgians in bottle! Nice atmosphere as well. They are proud of their Belgians and have a great selection. Prices reasonable.

Very friendly welcome at this little pub. Free nibbles at 7 pm, we followed these with a look at the impressive menu. We had a large pick-your-own salad and lovely pasta. Beer choices great too. Service was outstanding, a real treat ... you should visit!

I was so happy to find this little pub. They had an antipasti buffet for 7 Euros with an aperitif included. My very picky Russian companion was thoroughly pleased with the food and her fancy bellini. She also had a caprese salad with the biggest blob of mozzarella I've ever seen - definitely American size portions here. I was thrilled... More

Visited this great bar/restaurant a few times during our stay in Bologna. The menu is extensive and varied and is very good value for money. The different pasta dishes we ordered on both evenings we ate there were excellent as were the deserts. Cocktails and Prosecco also very nice.and we were treated to some goodies on the house too! It's... More
