Don't go by appearances as you might not be impressed. But this traditional eatery will impress you with it's quality and range of meals on offer. Not forgetting the wine, some real stunners.

The desserts were so tasty too! The only regreat: we couldn't come back the next day to try their stinco! It looked amazing on the plate of... More

Recommended by our hotel, this was a good local trattoria. No fancy decor or elaborate presentation, just good (though not great) local food. Gets very busy, and seems to be mostly locals - with no English spoken - so get practising your Italian!

Very busy, mostly local clientele, and no wonder: beautifully prepared delicious local specialties and very reasonable prices. The quality of ingredients and careful preparation is evident in every dish. Nice house red to accompany the beautiful pastas and meats. The starter of prosciutto, salami, fried bread, and burrata is outstanding!!! Butter and sage on angliotti. Stincko. All as good as... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by someone who lives in bologna and a great recommendation. For starters we shared the typical Crescentine (pan fried homemade bread) with salami and soft cheese. None of us had ever had this before and it was finished in record time. I had the Cotoletta alla Bolognese(Bologna Cutlet with Parmesan and Prosciutto) as a... More

Simple and unsophisticated but really nice food and friendly service. Great place for lunch. Wine in carafes. Very simple menu and great value set lunch. We really liked this place. Big local lunch crowd and lovely "Italian" atmosphere. Not fine dining but good simple and tasty food.

Went for lunch, food was simple and not very good, also served on small plates. This is my opinion, as my husband enjoyed his but said it was as though it was cooked at home. The owner is standing by watching over and takes your payment at the door. Found the waiters very abrupt but maybe as we didn't speak... More

This restaurant is associated/housed with the Culinary Institute of Bologna so the food does not disappoint. It was recommended to us to make a reservation and we were glad we did! The restaurant was very crowded but had a nice cozy, warm feel to it. Be warned that there is not much English spoken from the waitstaff. The food came... More

The restarant looks like a provincial place, but homemade food is tasty and the wine is great! The atmosphere is real Italian one.

When the owner is sitting at the entrance of the restaurant looking over everything that goes on, it's always a good sign. A very busy, small place, we were lucky to find a table. Great food, fast service, good house wine, the place is mostly visited by locals, so the energy in the room is fantastic. A great experience.
