“Visited today 14th December 2013 - Excellent”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Lunchtime visit, arrived just as they opened and was given a prime window seat, within 1/2 hour the place was packed many with locals.

The waiter sadly seemed to speak no English nor had any written menu. However we managed to order what turned out to be excellent food. We were given a glass of sparkling wine and a starter. This was followed up by a paster course and then a meat course. The meat in all dishes was excellent, with the main course meat being full of flavour and just dropped of the bone.

We were then greater by the owner who had lived in the UK and spoke pretty good English and ensured we were okay. Brilliant service! Sweet followed and a further drink on the house. When we were leaving we found the bill to be extremely reasonable for all the courses and wine we had. A bonus was the Owner gave the wife a rose.

Will certainly visit again when next in Italy.

“Fabulous local experience”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

If you really want a Bologna experience, you must try out this restaurant. The owner, Emmanuelle is a character! The ambience is just fantastic as he discusses the woes of Italian politics with you and with his regulars! The outside tables add the experience of the archway streets of Bologna! Food is very good and certainly very reasonable for what you pay.

“Spot on - lovely place to eat in Bologna ”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Went to a traditional Italian restaurant based on some of the reviews I read on TripAdvisor.

There wasn't a menu, but the friendly staff and owner ran through the main courses, it started off with a tasty onion focaccia with raisin and for the appetizer it was the chefs choice of a Guinea fowl which tasted amazing. The bolognese tagliatelle was fantastic. The pork bone marrow in tomato sauce is highly recommended along with the beef fillet.

Very homely and friendly atmosphere. Would come again....

“Good food and a lovely Italian atmosphere”
Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

Been here several times. Dinner was always good and tastefull. In this restaurant it is better to 'go with the flow'. Just sit, enjoy and let emanuelle take care of your wine and dinner.
