What a great, quaint restaurant down a small alleyway. Fabulous food presented in unique ways. The Sangiovese wine was the best we've tasted! Staff was knowledgeable and understood our broken Italian ... plus, spoke very good English. We would definitely go back.

First the positives. The location is delightful - in the heart of the old city in a little alley, almost on its own, Vicolo Colombino takes up two shop fronts. The restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the staff present a professional and attentive manner. The food was mostly excellent. A plate of mixed locally sourced salame, prosciutto...

Amazing food. Perfect combination of ingredients. Very high standard. I love to go out for lunch or dinner and this place nailed all my expectations. Starters, main course and even desserts are over perfection. Sublime. Without doubt this restaurant deserve to be on top

Enjoyed a lovely meal with good service. Luckily they speak good English so could help us choose our meal. Excellent and extensive wine list. All in all a good find.

this is a gem right next to San Petronio. The Taglatelle e Risotto which I had on 2 visits were incredible. It is a small place operated by young people who are doing a great job.

We enjoyed our first meal here so much that we came back a second night even though we were only in Bologna for a short time. The staff is young and friendly and very relaxed. The food is excellent and is prepared with great care, flavorful and presented beautifully. The atmosphere is lively. I would describe it as traditional Bolognese... More

Went as a couple on September 24th. Uncomfortably warm, even though they had air conditioning. Small but good menu and the food was decent. Inattentive wait staff. Would not go back

Called in here looking for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. A bit hidden but a gem to find. Food was not cheap but very well presented and excellent flavours. By the time we left the place was buzzing with locals and tourists and all seemed to be enjoying the place. Enjoy.....

Thank Simon C
