The restaurant is located on a street right off one of the main piazzas which makes it easy to get to.
The restaurant attracts locals as well as tourists which is always a good sign. In addition it looks as if many Bolognese celebrate special occasions there which says it hold a unique place in their hearts.
The menu is varied and Dominico, our waiter, was very helpful in helping us negotiate our way through it. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there so much so we made a repeat visit during our stay in Bologna.

After a busy day touring, we went here at the recommendation of a friend back home. He had lived in Bologna and ate here often. We were warmly welcomed by the two owners and given great service. Two looked like brothers, but we did not ask. Food was expertly prepared and served. Since it was porcini season, my wife ordered the taglitelle with porcini and was thrilled with the choice. The wine was local and very good. Interesting is the large selection of wine bottles lining the windows and shelves in the restaurant. It is easy to see why Rodrigo's has been around for so long.

We came across what we now know to be a famous establishment by total coincidence. We went in at almost 14:00 and were seated after we promised we'd only have a quick lunch.
Lunch included:
2 dishes of taliatele with ragu sauce-first course size
2 dishes of tortelini with tomato sauce-first course size
2 bottles of natural water
1 cup of double espresso
Bread
We paid....I still can't believe it....95(!!!!!!!!!!)€

24€ were for “il coperto” !!!!! Unbelievable!
No wine, no main course, nothing special (it was tasty but not out of this world).

Yes, I feel we were ripped off. No, I never want to go there again and don't recommend it to others.

what a romantic place Rodrigo is !

went for lunch on a dark rainy day and we were treated like royalty. The food was fresh and delicious too....very large selection of home made pastas and some wonderful vegetable dishes like fried eggs on green wild asparagus.

the service was perfect and some of the regulars and mainly old timers provided the floor show.......elegant couples in their eighties eating and drinking well into the afternoon.

Life as it should be enjoyed.
