Yummy local restaurant at reasonable prices.

May pay to book ahead as most tables were booked the night we visited.

Had tried night before to eat at this small restaurant-all tables booked. Having been referred by hotel where I stay regularly and trust their recommendations I tried it for lunch-glad I did. While the menu is small and the fare pretty standard there was a subtlety to the cooking that made a common dish stand out. Service at lunch from one very hard working waitstaff who kept on top of everything and met everyone's needs. I would clearly go back and try more dishes here.

Recommended by local expert Roberta at B&B Benelli this is an ultra-reliable highly competent Bolognese restaurant. Perfectly executed food at reasonable prices with very capable service in charming surroundings. If you came to Bologna for the food (and I love my food) then this is worth booking..I'd rate it a higher overall experience than other restaurants with higher ratings at 2-3 times the price.
The Montanara antipasti selection is a must, with extra chicory and truffle cream flan if they have it...best vegetable dish I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Pasta is perfectly executed - tagliatelle ragu and tortellini in brodo are excellent and would love to try the rest. Like most Italian meals, the antipasti and primi platti are better than the secondi platti but again they are well executed and the cotoletta bolognese was very good. No room for dessert but coffee was fine.
No nonsense, great food, book it (loads of people were turned away on the Saturday night we went).

The restaurant was recommended to me from staff at the Camper store, ask where I could have the best pasta lunch and the both said La Montanara. After having lunch there today couldn't agree more, the mushroom tagliatelle was perfect. Everything about the restaurant was good, highly recommend for value and quality.

Perfect service and great home cooking. Been there a few times and cant wait to be back!
One of the few restaurants where the waiter does not point you to the expensive Barolos etc but give sound advice. Thanks!
