Placed in center of Bologna. Not to big but ensuring really nice Italian atmosphere. Very nice staff, quite large range of choice especially pasta... prices very correct.

Just visited for a late dinner. Nice atmosphere, very gentle and immediate service. As a starter we got risotto which was excellent . My second was a tagliatta which was average... can do better...

Walking around Bologna around 1pm, having just sidestepped the laminated tourist menu establishments and found this gem. Place was full of locals which is always a good sign and we were not disappointed in the slightest. Atmosphere, service and food were all superb. Scroll past the poor reviews, this is well worth a visit.

We ate here on our first night in Bologna, recommended by our airbnb host. Busy restaurant, with lively atmosphere and good service. The food was honest freshly prepared Italian cooking, very appetising and good value. Would visit again.

I have been with a friend for a dinner on Saturday evening. Even if the place was full the owner ask us to wait since in some minutes a table was going to be free...and in the meantime he offer us a glass of prosecco! Nice welcome. We had a good dinner and a nice and fast service in the... More

We had dinner on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was busy and they seemed more interested in turning tables than serving the customers they had. Food was OK but have tasted better. Evening spoilt by poor service

Surprised by the recent negative reviews. We found the service excellent and the food well cooked and plentiful. Deciding to take a break from the pasta we chose to have the fillet steak with grilled vegetables and some incredibly tasty roasted rosemary potatoes. Great!! With a well chilled rose wine. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, her English much better... More

Whilst the food itself was fine we didn't feel comfortable here at all. The waitress seemed uninterested and as soon as my partner had finished his meal his plate was taken away despite the fact I was still eating. There was no one else in the place so not sure why the rush. Same thing when I finished eating, the... More

We happened upon this restaurant on the first evening of a family vacation and the service was excellent, the food was wonderfully prepared and presented, both typical Bolognese dishes and general foods like salmon and vegetables. The wine list was good, and the waitress knowledgeable about local wines and suggestions for pairing with certain dishes. The tables just outside the... More

We visited the Taverna del Postiglione on our Route Trip through North Italy, but after ten days of traveling it was the first bad choice of Restaurant. The portions were too small for the price we had to pay and the food was a little bit to cold but it tasted good. The worst thing was the rude service. She... More

Situated in Bologna's historic center, a few steps away from the Two Towers and Piazza Maggiore, the Taverna del Postiglione welcomes its guests in a warm and charming way. The ideal place to enjoy the excellent local specialities within its walls which speak of the past. The charming historic restaurant building is the perfect setting for a triumph of flavors and aromas. Here the typical Bolognese cuisine is complemented by a continuous search for new dishes. All accompanied by an excellent wine list, which selects the best regional and national labels.
