Whether you are looking for a pizza, or a veal cutlet, La mela is one of those places you can just pop in and they'll always find you a table.
You can order an artichoke mixed salad with mozzarella, a piece of fish, or a pasta plate with no hassles.
Family owned business, a bit of chaos, but easy going and relaxed.
Nothing fancy, always good.

Do not know why folks give this restaurant a bad review. We ate here twice and the place is always full. Service can be brisk and seems unfriendly but they do warm up once the rush is over. The Tortellini en Brodo was excellent, the fish fantastic. The pizza is average. However the crust is very good. They used the crust for bread also which is excellent. The gentleman making the pizza is very friendly.

Don't have much to say about this restaurant other than that the food and service were nothing special and quite unmemorable. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't that great either. There are so many other restaurants in Bologna that offer much better pizza and pasta (probably at a better price). Why waste your time, money and calories on mediocre?

Simple pizza joint with so much more, can get a full course meal here or just a pie. This is where the locals eat.

Food was a little bet salty. The service wasn't friendly neither rude just wasn't feeling right.
The place was very tourist.
