What can you say. The owner greets you with no menu, only a verbal description of what the chefs have for the day. And considering that both chefs are his sons, with a grandson as a server, this restaurant is a family affair. You start with tapas of marinated olives, house made ricotta cheese, slow cooked chick peas, onions in... More

We booked a table at the suggestion of the owner of our guest house - we had checked it out beforehand during the day - it looked attractive inside and the menu was appealing. We arrived and were seated. No menu appeared. Eventually the waiter/ owner/ manager came over and listed the four starters and four main courses - all... More

This is a well presented restaurant in a quiet street. Friendly service. But this is a tourist restaurant, not one local the night we went. Some dishes traditional and others slightly over engineered. Wine quality was ok just by the glass. It plays to a formula which is ok, but I wouldn't go back.

An incredible restaurant. Family run, with love and passion. No menu, but who cares? Everything that comes out of the kitchen is delicious. Too bad we want on our last night in Bologna. Now we will have to come back!

While it was almost empty when we entered at 20.30h, it filled up during the next hour. there is no written menue, but the chef himself comes to list the first and the main dishes... More

This place was some of the best food I have ever tasted, there is no menu, the incredible owner simply tells you everything they have to offer that day, and also suggests some reasonably priced wine to match. It is slightly pricey but you very much get what you pay for. More of a special night out for us but... More

I used to eat at this restaurant quite a lot 20 years ago. Finding myself in Bologna, with my wife, recently I booked a table and went along with some concern that it would not be as good as it used to be. What a relief, first to find the owner Antonio was still in residence and then to find... More

We went to this restaurant because it sounded good and was close to our apartment. We immediately loved the decor. Since we had no reservations we were told to take a table in the front area next to the bar. Our server asked if we were thinking about fish or meat and we said fish. He told about the various...
