Good food! Good service! I would highly recommend. The pizza is good for lunch and the pasta is good for a heavier meal. The bruschette was pretty amazing as well :)

I took my family here last week during Christmas break and loved it. My daughter is studying college in Bologna and she raved about it, and now the entire family agrees. The prices were very reasonable, and the quality and quantity of food was excellent.

After a bad experience with pizza in venice, we were very unsure about pizza now in general. But we gave it a go. And wow the pizza was amazing. Pasta was good and the service was also prompt. Would go back for sure. Highly recommended.

Stumbled across this restaurant on a wet day in Bologna. It is a warm and inviting place and we felt very welcome there. Great service with a smile. Bruschetta, cold meat platter, spaghetti carbonara, Cotoletta, Tortellini prosciutto all amazing.

Good stuff, found by accident. Had pizza Nicola's, Nicolas himself showed me how he made it, and then served it with pride. Highly recommended.

Just walking around Piazza San Martino, lunch time, and we spotted this place, it is quite a large restaurant, very busy, but nonetheless they found a table for us and we ate great food, with house wine. Everything was very good and tasty. I didn't have any issues with overcharging like some fellow reviewers have mentioned. They even offered a... More

We both had seafood starter's they were both really lovely and big as well, we had a sharing pizza as well and this pizza was amazing, I was so sad I couldn't manage much of it. The waitress and waiter and manager were all very nice and friendly people.
