Just when I thought I'd eaten in the best places in Bologna, my friend taunted me with Drogheria for a few months. On my last visit I finally delighted my taste buds. On a beautiful balmy evening sat outside, with a handful of locals and a cool glass of lambrusco frizzante. Much like the evening the proprietor and staff were... More

Wow! Phenomenal lunch. Old school service--owner sat with us, directing every move of the staff. Love how in Italia there is not often that "whisper-yelling" seen in North America, but just straight out yelling, or maybe loud direction from the owner ;) He did a great job of looking out for my cow's milk allergy. There was white wine, a... More

Excellent food from bologna. If you don't speak Italian, this may be a bit hard for you. There is no printed menu, so you'll need to hear it from the waitress and understand what is proposed. The chef or owner came regularly to check on us, made us taste side dishes now and there, decided the (very good) wine we... More

In short...there is no menu and no clarity around what is included and what is charged (hint, everything is charged even if you faint ask for it). It is plain wrong to place wine and food on the table without it being ordered then charge for it. It is also plain wrong not to have a menu and serve what... More

Real bolognese food, great service and friendly atmosphere in a very nice part of the city. Popular also for locals, no menu, but all fresh and high quality. The pasta, the bolognese lasagna, the vitello tonnatto, the beef steak, all 10+ . Alice was great, she made the best recomandations in a very professional yet warm and friendly way. Thank... More

Bologna is known for its pasta and Drogheria della Rosa makes Bologna proud. This place was recommended by a waitress in our hotel and it surpassed our high expectations. We had tortellini in broth, pasta with eggplant, and tortelloni with squash. The taste was exquisite. This was our fourth visit to Bologna and Drogheria served us the best pasta we... More

We had a fantastic dinner here and it was definitely the highlight of our stay in Bologna. We were happy letting the restaurant staff pick the delicious favorites, and we left full and happy. The proprietor and other staff were extremely gracious and welcoming. It was the type of Italian meal everyone should experience. We were also thrilled when we... More

One of the best, more pleasant meals I have ever had in Bologna...and competition is stiff. Charming and beautiful local restaurant in the historic center. There is a daily menu offering of pasta and main dishes, and fresh deserts. Extensive wine lis, grappa etc etc. The service is highly professional. Prices are very reasonable. This will be one of my... More

An earlier review said, 'Go with the flow,' and that is just what you have to do. We let the staff guide us and they did not let us down. The owner was friendly, amusing and informative. When the bill came he thought it was too high so reduced it to below €100 and that included the drinks he thrust... More

If there's one place to eat in Bologna, it's this! There were no menus but they can cater for vegetarian :) We actually didn't make a booking and managed to get a table, but it would probably be better to book! The bill was less than €100 for 2 people which was an incredible price for this fantastic meal! We... More
