The headline says it all, it's a super cute place. Pretty small, so I guess better to book in advance even if we did not. The food is delicious and the staff very nice. Have been first time there but not the last time

The food is great. We were happy with the parmesan risotto and should have stopped there. The owner was very liberal with the truffles on top of the risotto. LOVED IT.

I would gladly drive back to Bologna for the same meal! We were invited here by people in the know and they warned us that we would have only seafood. The quality of the food was amazing. First they brought antipasti in plates: the white...More

Is this restaurant good for solo travelers? If it is a set menu from 6-7 dishes , wouldn't be too much food for 1 person? Approximately how much is the cost for 1 person? Thank you!
