Highly recommended - delicious food, very friendly service and very relaxed. The chocolate cake is not to be missed.

“An outstanding example of the local cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

These guys are very passionate about food. We visited this restaurant twice just to try and sample more of the menu. The emphasis is on regional dishes, sourced locally and prepared well. One evening, the front man (tall one) patiently explained every menu item to us and another table (in quite passable English) at the end of which you couldn't help but want to try every dish. Service was prompt and the kitchen turned out the food at a comfortable pace. Save room for the extraordinary chocolate cake. It is simply one of the best desserts we've ever had.

“nice, romantic, yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

During our trip to Bologna we spent a most wonderful evening in this little neighbourhood Restaurant. The ambience is simple but cosy, not too stylish. Service can only be called outstanding. We can not really give priority to a single dish, as everything was close to perfect.
Would go back there any time.
