“The Best!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Beautiful intimate restaurant with fantastic food/service. Every dish we had was over-the-top delicious. We ordered from the "specials board." Il Canone is a place where locals go for a romantic meal; Almost all diners were couples. But the owner/staff were welcoming to us Americans, too. The owner took a lot of time to explain the specials chalkboard to us in excellent English. I'm a vegetarian (my spouse is definitely not), and he was quick to pinpoint which dishes could be made veggie. He also made the very best grilled veggie platter for me- I think it was a special option that he just created. I want to recommend this place because they deserve recognition and success, but part of me wants to keep it a secret so that it stays small. It's perfect.

“A Gourmet Restaurant Outside of Downtown”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Il Connone is neighborly, but the work Paolo, Luca and Raffaella produce meals would match any in Bologna, and any other. The hospitality of the staff made us comfortable, especially with our marginal Italian, Paolo explained the two dinners: one was a fish theme, and the second we had meat and pasta supremo! The atmosphere in the place was friendly.
