I can highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Traditional local food is prepared to perfection. The colorful owner seems grumpy but has a heart of gold. Just put your faith in his hands and let him choose. Don't skip the appetizers, even if they raise the price above the average for this kind of food in the surrounding area. The... More

I came to this restaurant because a friend recommended it. It turned out to be a great place. The owner (Matias) was super as well as all the staff. They served us a sample of three different pastas and they all were delicious. I would recommend it to anyone!

The Gramigna a la Salchicha is amazing. The Piadine and the Fiorentina is extraordinary. One of the best culinary experiences of my life. Looking forward to go back. Highly recommended.

Il truciolo is about 15 km outside Bologna. For this reason I think that they have never seen a tourist eating there. Consequently, they have to keep high quality standards to attract customers. The restaurant has a genuine and vintage atmosphere. We ate starters and pasta. Everything was very tasty, I liked polenta with egg and black truffle and gramigna... More
