I walked into the place not knowing much Italian or much about their food apart from Polenta. Walked out a very happy customer and a much more understanding and happy tummy.
Food is all made fresh to order and made with love. There is nothing much more I can add to what previous reviews have of this place.

Try the Crescentine with (Gusti) Prosciutto cotto e crudo & squacquerone filling.

Also down the road is a very nice Gelato shope called "La Cremeria della Grada". As recommended by the owner at this shop

This place is a perfect example of simple honest place with extremely tasty dishes. the crescentine and polenta are a treat, and would have been regretful to miss it. It is a place that can be appreciated only in contrast with other meals had in bologna restaurants that advertise themselves as value for money and of quality

OK, go to the best rated and expensive restaurants if you want. But having lived in Bologna for 8 months, going to this restaurant has been a wonderful experience. It isn't Michelin starred food, and you won't have Gordon Ramsay screaming from the kitchen, but you will have polenta and Bolognese crescentine and tigelle made and served by Bolognese! Good, local and hearty food at a good price. Well worth a visit!
