food was excellent, bruchetta, salad caprese, tortellone. initially service too fast, then waiter gone and service poor. manager did bill at cash desk, got it wrong, I corrected it but did not issue actual printed receipt. in summary food good but bit more respect needed for customers

I found this restaurant from Tripadvisor. It is a small and very friendly restaurant in the old part of Bologna. The pizza we ate was unique. I think it was the most delicious thing I tried during my stay in Italy. The staff was very courteous.

Traditional and authentic. Margarita pizza is just 4.50 euros. This place has a lovely feel and is clearly a family run Italian affair. Nothing is too much trouble and... More

Good food! Good service! I would highly recommend. The pizza is good for lunch and the pasta is good for a heavier meal. The bruschette was pretty amazing as well :)

I took my family here last week during Christmas break and loved it. My daughter is studying college in Bologna and she raved about it, and now the entire family agrees. The prices were very reasonable, and the quality and quantity of food was excellent.
