This deserves 5 stars not because of some fine dining over complicated nonsense but because it gives great food in an authentic environment with simple service. The antipasto starter is superb - three waves of excellent dishes with a mix of meat and vegetarian food culminating is a whole pecorino cheese accompanied with home made jam and honey. Mains including... More

We were very disappointed with the food and staff. Restaurant was dated and dingy, food was unseasoned, and service rushed. Very tight seating, was bumped into a number of times by the waiter without an apology. Will not return.

We have dinner at Alice's every time we are in Bologna, 2 to 3 times a year. Excellent pasta, never ending appetizers and a wonderful assortment of deserts. Plan on spending some time here with friends as we are always here for at least 3 hours. Great food with friends never rushed.

I love this place, it is a small authentic local restaurant lots of local people eating here, (it is not fancy or decorated to impress) it is very much like you are being welcomed into the extended family, the waiter and the owner will both guide you with your choices, we have been twice and plan to visit at least...

Found this place by chance, food was gorgeous. The pasta is handmade by the daughter of the owner & was delicious! We had 3 courses each & enjoyed every one! Just lovely! Highly recommend!

I have discovered this little restaurant thanks to friends who live in Bologna. If you spend some days in town and want to experience the local cuisine in a cheerful environment, this is a place to try. 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. Broad choice of starters and desserts. A retro atmosphere and a very nice owner.

This is the ultimate local bistro. The owners are pleasant fun and really know their food. The prices are very reasonable for gourmet quality dishes. (Three Courses and Wine 80E) The pasta of course was great. I had a roasted chicken that really stood out. I barbaque four times a week and try to get the perfect crust. This was... More

This was an all Italian menu we needed help with. The waiters were great, helping to explain what the menu items were. The house wine was a Sangiovese & very good at 8 euro per 1/2 litre. Only other tables were inhabited by Italians.

This place is terrific if what you want is an authentic Italian experience. I loved the fact that we had a tiny table in a corner with plenty of happy Italian chatter all around. Our servers hardly spoke English, which made me more confident that this was not a touristy spot. Still, they were very kind and patient with my... More
