In Bologna for just one night and stumbled across this place.. early evening meal so not very busy... friendly staff, huge portion sizes and good food. No complaints... will probably go back next year when we are back in town.

I got pizza and beer--typical combination for Italians--and I loved it. The service was excellent, friendly and professional. The wait was minimal, and the price very good in terms of quality-price. The restaurant is also ideal for large groups, as it is quite big.
