I took my family to this restaurant for the tortellini, which was excellent, as always. We asked for an antipasti of ham and 5 fried zucchini flowers (there were 5 of us). Unfortunately they brought us a full plate of deep fried vegetables as well. It was a little embarrassing as we didn't eat it. When we mentioned that we... More

a 10min walk from the Cathedral this family run restaurant is simple, cosy and very enjoyable. The Lady who runs it is full of energy and ideas about what you should try. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. This really is a feel-good place and should make you smile

There were lots of pasta plates to choose from. Service was quick and friendly. I had the gnocchi and husband had the tagliatelle with traditional ragu. Both very nice, perfectly cooked pasta, lovely flavours.

This unpresuming restaurant is attached to an osteria and run by the family. The pasta is all freshly made, of course, and their lasagna is an experience like no other. The pasta itself is moist and plump, the meat is also moist and tasty. So there's no need for heavy cream. The whole dish melts in your mouth. I asked... More

From start to finish, everything was perfect - pillowy gnocchi (best we have ever tried), subtle gramigna with sausage, and excellent mains, including a sublime veal roast with brandy, orange, and juniper berries. The owner recommended a great local riserva Sangiovese. All in all, fantastic. Nice atmosphere and and unhurried experience. Mostly local, some tourists, though none of the others... More

Dined here on our last night in Bologna. Definitely book as it is popular but also very classic with a great atmosphere. It's run by a lady and her husband and everyone is constantly to and from the kitchen serving excellent local food. I could happily have eaten there every night. The classic tortellini in brodo was superb as was... More

A mix of tourists and locals. A friendly but rather forthright lady (owner?) who we felt was perhaps rather determined that we should eat the days specials. However she took our a la carte order promptly and efficiently. Food was good and atmosphere comfortable.

We were recommended to go to Osteria la Traviata by our hotel - and were not disappointed. We had wonderful, fresh, local food which was just what we were looking for in Bologna. We had hoped to get into one of the 'fancy' restaurants nearby, like the 3 Michelin star Osteria Francescana, but it was impossible to get a reservation.... More
