Our meal at Trattoria del Borgo was one of the highlights of our whole Italian adventure. We went to Bologna specifically because we'd heard they had the best food in Italy. And they did.

The pillowcase veal in Barbara was one of the best meat dishes i've ever had. The chocolate ganache with pear puree was amazing.

We got the traditional tasting menu, and my only regret was not realizing how much food was going to be coming (I was expecting more sample sizes of each dish but these were full size plates for each course), or I wouldn't have finished the earlier dishes to leave more room for the later ones (dessert!). (I was full after 2 courses and there were 5 in total).

The presentation was beautiful. The waiter (who I think was the owner as well) was delightful and spoke great english to our surprise since we realized we were in a less touristy area. We ordered a bottle of wine from the agriturismo where we were staying and he told us about a few more of their wines that were really good. At the end, he had us try a walnut liquor that his father made, which made the 3 small kids cracking walnuts at a table when we arrived make sense.

Oh, and the price was great. 25 euro for the 5 course meal. It was a really fun, romantic night.

Must go! Killer food, beautiful location. Helpful waiters, fresh mushroom & truffle is season used in various dishes. The braised veal cheek dish was incredible as was the pork.

Worth the trip from Bologna just for the view and the atmosphere. In the middle of a walled town, no cars. And excellent food. The view of the surrounding hills and countryside is wonderful, and the staff were very friendly.

We live 2 villages away and I ve noticed how this restaurant has got really better over the last 2 years . Try for a very warm night , book well in advance for around 8.30 pm . Leave the car outside the old town walls . its a delight to walk to the place too . Next to a really ancient monastary over 1000 year old . Last time the monks paragied by in the road ( no traffic ) pedestrian only
Like a superb film set
We are very lucky to have such a place nearby

We ate at Trattoria del Borgo twice whilst on holiday in the area and had a beautiful meal on each occasion. There is a good variety of dishes - beef, pork, lamb, rabbit, vegetarian etc, all freshly prepared to a very high, imaginitive standard. The staff were also very friendly/helpful.

The fact that it is located next to the Abbazia at the top of Monteveglio should not deter anyone. It is well worth the drive!
