I will try, in the circumstances, to make this a fair and balanced review. But please be aware that this is not a review of food, service or ambience as we never actually made it to the restaurant. Having booked via Facebook and supplied my phone number to 'complete the reservation' we were looking forward to our visit. At 4pm... More

There are two rooms here, seperated by the street. One looks great, the other not. Whilst welcomed nicely with our basic touristic Italian on entry to the smaller newer room, that;s pretty much where the good service stopped for us. Having seen all the more Italian looking folks in the main room and the more touristic folks in your smaller... More

Dined here on our first night in Bologna. Like all the osteria, the atmosphere is cosy with great local food, expertly prepared and served from friendly staff. I had tagliatelle ragù (obviously a local classic) and I was not disappointed. Our friends had their 6 year old son with them and he had the tagliatelle too - kid's potion and... More

This is one of the two best in Bologna, the other being Battibecco. It is small, but extremely well designed for comfort; there is not really a bad, or cramped, table in the house. The table near the door can be a little hectic, as so many people are coming and going (mostly because people arrive without a reservation, and... More

This is traditional fine dining, Bologna-style. Perfect for a business dinner or a romantic evening, the dishes are traditional, the service is attentive and the food is delicious. It is somewhat pricey, but definitely worth it for the experience. I can highly recommend the pigeon: extraordinary.

A very cozy restaurant near to Porta Saragozza, one of the portals in the medieval walls of Bologna. We were warmly welcomed although we arrived at 2.15 pm which is quite late for an Italian lunch. The menu is irresistible, the dishes are explained by the staff and they also recommend you well. We started with a dish to share... More

I had the tortellini stuffed with pumpkin and covered in a black cabbage glaze. I literally welled up it was so incredible. I love the quaint feel of the restaurant and their house wine was delicious. I suggest going and enjoy a meat platter and then a pasta. The service was great and all the menu items look irresistable!

Tired and weary, our first evening and dinner in Emilia Romagna was relaxing and a wonderful choice. The staff was welcoming and friendly and all made an effort to help the non-Italian speaking Americans. Our food choices included tortellini in brodo and tagliatelle al culatello as first course. The best English-speaking server helped us select Roasted rabbit with white wine... More

One of my best lunches ever, not to miss when you are in Bologna. We didn't make a reservation, but as the restaurant was completely full, they opened the second room just for us alone. The maltagliati con ragù di coniglio, the piccione di nido and the cheeses were absolutely delicious. Mustapha served us wonderful wines and was very friendly... More
