Traveling to Florence we stopped at the Drogheria Della Rosa for a late lunch. The restaurant was closing but the owner Emanuele insisted we stay for lunch and made us one of the best fillet steaks we have had. Done in a balsamic vinegar and peppers it was tender and went down very well. We spent a number of hours chatting to locals and Emanuele about Bologna, its history, our home town in New Zealand and the celebrities that have dined at the restaurant. If you are looking for excellent food and a friendly chat while in Bologna then dine with Emanuele.

The owner was walking around chit chatting it up with all of the patrons... he was drunk and absolutely hilarious.
The food was great and served up good Bolognese dishes.
The atmosphere is way above average.
You're rubbing elbows with mostly locals and some tourists.
Definitely a place that I would go back to.

I just love eating in Italy, there is always an anticipation that the food would be like mama's cooking especially in bologna. This place is a classic, nothing has changed in terms of decor or food I suspect. The owner clearly loves himself and what he does. The menu is explained by the waitress and despite a language barrier, we managed to order all the classic dishes and
loved everything. And the wine keeps flowing unless you tell them to stop..becareful!

Can't say more than has already been said. We stopped in for a little lunch, and three hours later, we finished a meal that we still remember three years later. Chef/owner/manager Immanuel ( hope I spelled that right) was a charming character. Everything was perfect! If you are in or around Bologna, go! Go now!
