Very traditional and cosy 'osteria' with very good service, fantastic food. We enjoyed the anipasti, which have been totally different of what you normally get. Primi piatti (tortelloni and lasagne) tasted excellent and secondo piatti (coniglio) was a real surprise! Such a good rabbit... wow!...More

Nice place with a vintage atmosphere that is not created artificially. A bit cold, I almost put my coat back, and chairs are quite uncomfortable. The menu is quite extensive and includes traditional bolognese dishes but also fish based choices. The service is good. However...More

Every course here was a work of art but I have to say the most impressive thing about this restaurant is the passion and flexibility of the owner. If you can't decide on a starter you can get a little taster plate of everything, he...More

I went to university in Bologna 20 years and have returned on many occasions. This restaurant is one I found many years ago and it is superb. Different in that the owner mainly guides you on what to have, but let him. It's amazing! Food...More

We come to this small, family owned Restaurant every year when we visit Bologna. No menu, rely on the owner/chef recommendations. He cooks whatever found fresh at the market and inspired him. This time he offered us a sampling menu, in which some dishes were...More
