We ate at Ristorante Il Moro with some friends - a large restaurant/pizzeria with a lot of outdoor tables. It was a sunday and many other places were closed.

Our starters included spaghetti with clams (vongole - €10) and caprese salad (€8), both good. Tortelloni with porcini sauce was passable, but a bit stodgy.

For mains, a veal chop (€12) with roast potatoes was good. A tagliatelle with ragu Bolognese was a bit dry and disappointing. Two pizzas (€7) with vegetable toppings looked great with nice crisp bases, but were declared to be curiously bland.
A side order (€5) of grilled vegetables comprised some decent peppers and fennel, but relatively tasteless “undressed” grilled aubergine and courgette.

We drank a couple of bottles of young Sangiovese (€20 each), from a limited and uninformative wine list.

We may have been unfortunate with some of our choices, the place was fairly busy and may be more focused on volume rather than culinary quality. It's inexpensive so you probably get what you pay for. Service was efficient.

Toilets - Separate ladies & gents in good condition.

You haven't wide choice where to have a good lunch on Sunday in Bologna. This place has convenient location (two steps from via Independenza) and they work at the noontime. The meals were of nice quality and pretty tasty, but overpriced. Note that service fee ("tavolo") is here 3 Euro per person (I think this is not really fair).

Food was ok, nothing extraordinary, but certainly not bad, either. The food basket the waiter brought to table contained half eaten slices of bread - pretty careless...

This place looked good from the outside, but didn't really work for us. The inside saloon of this kind of a restaurant rarely has as much atmosphere as the outdoor terrace, but we couldn't use the terrace because of rain, and the inside was just dull. On the night we were there, as far as I could tell all the customers were tourists, and they seemed to produce basic food for the tourist trade. The staff were ok but the food was mediocre. For their prices, you can do better in Bologna. Maybe we caught them on a bad day?
