My wife and I ate dinner at Tony's while in Bologna. I had two classic pasta dishes, which is un-Italian but was what I wanted: tortelli in broth and tagliatelli bolognase. The food was excellent, the service was good, the price was reasonable.

Where you can meet the Bolognese tradition at a good price and in the center. I recommend the dishes of tradition. Excellent service. Also organized for children.

Food not to good. Partner asked for well done steak and came out rare. Staff not happy when sent back. Lamb was mostly fat and tasteless. Potatoes were reheated probably from lunch session.

One of the best meals we had in Italy. No frills just great homestyle cooking. Try the tagliatelle with ragu and the more-ish tortellini in broth!
