This was our second time eating here. The service wince again was exceptional, attentive but not imtrusive, helpful in finding our way to the best on the menu. The Kobe beef was done perfectly. The appetizer of ricotta and pancetta was a perfect blend of...sweet and salt. The tortellini was pure comfort food. The desert was sublime. Some of the best food we have had. Zocca is off the beaten path, but this restaurant makes it worth the drive.More

Set in the center of the little downtown of Zocca, Osteria dal Cinon takes place of pride with an elegant and charming facade. The wonderful sense of welcome continued from the minute we walked in the door until the time we left. This is the...type of place that feels a little fancy because of its genuine hospitality and grace rather than being overwrought and overpriced. We enjoyed a delicious meal based on fresh, local ingredients. Luckily catching the end of black truffle season. Our starter course of mouth watering mushrooms on toast was generous in size and packed with flavor. Yet, it barely prepared me for what was to come next. The gnocchi in parmesan cream with shaved black truffles was one of the most satisfying dishes I have ever had. The gnocchi pillowy light, the sauce velvety smooth and the truffles rich and flavorful. It really was perfection. A simple plate of biscotti ended the meal. Peppered into the afternoon were conversations with the chef. He is talented, kind and very knowledgable about food. This is a man with feet in the country and his mind all over the world. His knowledge shows in the food that he presents. Zocca is a sweet stop along the way and could merit a quiet walk along its central street. There is a viewing area that offers glimpses across the mountains. A few minutes gazing with the locals is a nice way to stretch your legs. Had the shops been open I probably would have found myself wandering in and out for a while. A town that supports a restaurant like Osteria dal Cinon clearly has something else up it's sleeve that is worthy of discovering.More

Went in on a Tuesday night and was welcomed by the front of house who helped with my non-italian speaking vegetarianism! The chef came out and offered to make us things off-menu. Had crostini with porcini and a ricotta mouse with truffle to start, both...had tortelloni with butter and sage for main and chocolate mouse with pears in prosecco and rum and cinnamon gelato for afters. With three chardonnay and water, only 60 euro. And all delicious! Thank you.More

Zocca is not really a tourist destination. Zocca is a small village in the Colli Bolognesi (Hills area around Bologna). We came there by accident, and it was lunch time. So we walked up the main street - not much to be seen. then we...detected a sign for a restaurant and a garden that looked very nice. We decided to try it out - what a wonderful surprise! A burratina with very thin slivers of parmigiano and black truffels on a tomato pesto, a tasty carpaccio with (real old) balsamico, pasta with porcini - and a wonderful Verdicchio white wine (we managed the whole bottle, it was too good). All at a reasonable price! And if you are interested what "Cinon" means, the lady was nice enough to explain: Local dialect for "ragazzone" ('boy").More

Together wit my wife we had an excrllent dinner at Osteria dal Cinon. The owner and his wife are very friendly an he gave us a full explanstion of the menu. We had very fine starters: buratta with old parmaham, truffel and tomato sauce and...a bean dish with vegetavles and bottarga. After that fresh made tortellini and i had tagliata with porcini. As main course my wife had a salad with a kind of carpaccio and i had a great steak. Also desert was excellent. This was the best restaurant which we had in Italy so far. I can really say it's worthwhile to ho hete gor an excellent dinner.More

The town is hardly worth mentioning contrary to its surroundings: the very pretty foothills of the Apennines. It is a remote place, not often visited by tourists so the restaurants cater for locals and passers by. We were most happily surprised. We had burata with...summertrufflles and ham in tomato sauce. Local tagliatelle variety with Norcia sausage, Tortelonia with ricotta and crunchy vegetables and Kobe beef... I am sure that you will find great restaurants in Bologna or Modena but if you make the trip it will be worth your while: the countryside is very pretty and the diner will make it all worth while! Only one little remark: a lady server had lost her smile somewhere and couldn't find it whatever happened. The friendly staff deserves better colleagues...More

Ok, i'll make it simple. As someone who has travelled the globe and greatly enjoyed meals ranging from simple home-cooked family dinner on the floor of a living room in rural Cambodia to 5 star restaurants in major world cities, i can advise you this:...If you are travelling through Northern Italy and find yourself anywhere near Zocca, you have to stop here for a guaranteed gastronomic delight! One of the things that makes Italy famous is its cuisine and this place is a prime example of why this country deserves its reputation for great food. Every dish i sampled was superb, artisanal in its level of care and detail, prepared with quality local organic products, you can taste it is crafted with heart. The couple that runs it are warm and delightful people and you can really sense the pride and love of good cuisine which you can only get in places where the chef is the owner as well; That commitment to excellence that goes beyond the profession and extends into art.More

If you're ever in Zocca, or, well, if you're even 100km away from it, you just shouldn't miss this one. probably the best restaurant in Italy I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot of them), bruschetta with porcini mushrooms the best I've...ever tried, tortellini with chestnuts out of this world, great house wine, fantastic beef tagliata, and all this in wonderful ambiance and with perfect service. An absolute must!More
