"However many stars this restaurant gets, it's not enough" we agreed. We arrived at 8 p.m., and even by then - which is early for Bologna - it was busy. It is a very rustic restaurant right down to the old nails sticking out of the walls for coats. There is no written menu - you just go with the flow. Let the patron suggest his primi piatti and do try them all, even the fried custard. Then move onto the pasta course with some 6 or so different dishes and, if you are feeling able they are happy to bring you some of each. It just keeps on coming. The only Italian you'll need to learn is "Basta! Non posso mangiare più (please stop, I just cannot eat any more!)". Starters of fried zucchini flowers, baked aubergines with parmesan, cold meats, cheese, polenta with sauce, salad and more. Pasta, all homemade, from lasagne through to tortelloni, and from spaghetti to macaroni. Fancy dessert? We couldn't do them but we watched the tables of Italians working their way through small helpings of at least 7 different sorts. Go with an appetite, be brave, and enjoy great home-cooked food with the locals.
