Outside Bologna in the hills. Very popular for Sunday lunch. A noisy, friendly atmosphere. There is an outside eating area. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Reasonable cost. Child friendly.

The restaurant has no frills or beautiful decorations but the food is genuine and great. We had tortellini al brodo and tortelloni carcofi for starters. Veal and mixed grill for main course. We loved it.

I fondly remember Sunday afternoon drives outside of Bologna to visit nearby trattorias... Trattoria Croara felt like those long-ago Sunday lunches. Great views of the city, solid Bolognese food and good prices. Really enjoyed it - was recommended by a friend who lives in the...More
