We visited twice during our visit to Bologna w/c 24/04/17. The trattoria was recommended by our tour guide. This was a delightful place to eat - Luca was a flexible, friendly host who helped us to explore his delightful menu in a relaxed, genuine retro establishment. No hesitation in recommending this foodie delight.

Worked up an appetite walking up to Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca, Bologna - fantastic walk - just right for a fabulous lunch and we weren't disappointed. A wonderful trattoria with a really authentic atmosphere. The food was delicious, the house wine superb - a real gem of a find and we're going to have to go back... More

Good, straightforward Bolognese cooking - nothing fancy, but fully authentic. Old-style interior, very friendly host, very reasonable prices indeed. Highly recommended for those who like simple classics, cooked well. And the house red is fantastic value for money.

Staying above this quaint little Trattoria whilst in Bologna recently, we were welcomed by ever so friendly wait staff and presented with excellent food. This is a very popular little Trattoria and we took two go's to finally get a table in as many nights but well worth it.

The atmosphere is simple, warm, and comfortable. The service is excellent and they know about good food and enjoy sharing what makes a meal special. The food delicious and regional. All this adds up to unforgettable. Bologna is a wonderful city. Not to touristy and full of gems like Trattoria Belfiore.

Found this gem accidentaly. It's a must go ! We were three having a full dinner of antipasti, secondi and dolce with a litre of house redwine, a bottle of sparkling wine, coffee and a generous glass of grappa barricata. All dishes were excellent and freshly made in the open kitchen. Very friendly and competent staff. It's unpretentious and you... More

The food here is quite literally inedible - an insult to Italian cuisine. We went for a traditional tagliatelle bolognese and were served something worse than a prepacked pasta meal from the 1980's, my partner literally could not eat more than two mouthfuls. Overcooked pasta with a splat of sauce in the middle which was unfit for human consumption. This... More

Other recommended restaurants were all closed and so my wife and I walked around until we stumbled on this little place. As other reviews mention, the food here was outstanding as was the service. The owner (I assumed he was the owner) was gracious and helpful. The ice cream dessert we had was unbelievable great. The prices were low. I... More
