Roberto from Antica Residenza d'Azeglio recommended this place saying they have unsurpassed Mascarpone cheese dessert. I could not agree more with him. It was among the best desserts I ever had. Silky smooth, rich, sweetened just enough to appreciate this fresh and delicious dessert. Everything else we ordered was equally outstanding. We relied on our server (the owner of the restaurant) for suggestions. I especially remember my husband inhaling his tortellini before I managed to grab my camera (look for the pic with just one left in the bowl:)). I really liked the lamb dish and my pasta bolognese. Fun atmosphere, gracious hosts, memorable dinner. Excellent selection of wines. A must for all who seek typical Bolognese cuisine.

We went here on the first night of our Honeymoon on the basis of the restaurant's high rating on TripAdvisor. I have to say that it did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere cosy and informal and the food - largely traditional Bolognese cuisine - was very good; the standout dishes we had were the passatelli in brodo (soft, fresh pasta in a delicious meat broth) and the sformatino dello chef (my wife has informed me this was the best dessert of the entire honeymoon, which, given we spent three weeks touring Italy, says a lot!). The wine is reasonably priced too. We would definitely go back here.

The menu on this restaurent is great. I really liked the chicken with lemon, a summer dish. The wine, as expected, was great value for money. The hosts are very kind.

This is a very traditional Trattoria and the food is varied and outstanding. I had meatballs one day just for a change. Best sauce I have ever tasted. Prices very reasonable and service is excellent. But, you go here for the food. We tried several things and all were as good or better than any in all of Italy (our fifth trip).
