nice friends/family evening with great food and nice panorama enjoyed from the restaurant terrace which overlooks the valley from the hills of Castel de Britti. I had a nice and generous tartare, we shared a nice mix grill and the main pasta courses were simply delicious

A hidden gem within the Bologna region - a must visit. A very warm welcome awaits, with an extensive menu to satisfy everyone taste. Service and warm and friendly (thanks Max!) and the pasta is to die for! Don't forget to finish the meal with a home made Lemoncello or their signature 13 erbe amaro (13 Herb Amaro). Great wine...

We spent two evenings here while renting a house in Castel de Britti and both occasions were thoroughly enjoyable. The restaurant specialises in local dishes and has a good selection of wine from the area. On our first evening we were taken through the menu by the owner who spoke very good English and we decided upon a selection of... More

I visited this restaurant for the third time: good food, kind personnel, nice inside and outside in summer, good balance between price and quality. Don't miss the tasty "crescentine" (fried dough) and superb grilled meat.

La Vetta was recommended to us by friends in Pianoro. Glad we went there. Although it was somewhat sweltering outside, the outdoor location was lovely. We ordered specials and off the menu and had some excellent Lambrusco. Semifreddo was to die for and service, up until the end when the evening crowd really kicked in, was fast, efficient and friendly.... More

This was my third visit and it amazes me each time. Has a privileged location in terms of sights. The restaurant itself has this Classic Italian style. Its family owned and managed. The food it's simply amazing. From fresh pasta to several types of meat the challenge here is to choose. It's reasonable priced. Staff is professional with the owner... More

We ate twice at this osteria and enjoyed both meals. The restaurant specialises in cooking meat either on the barbeque or roasted. It also does lovely pasta and is very reasonably priced. In the evening you can eat out on the terrace which offers lovely views unless it is windy or cold in which case the terrace is enclosed.
