Went on recommendation of our hotel (often a risky move). Nice enough place and large menu although I usually find that it's better to go to places where they do a few dishes well rather than lots of things they aren't that good at. I...More

Pasta: pappardelle with salsicio and truffles, tagliatalle with artichoke both were divine. But mascarpone cream with chocolate was unforgettable. Just 200 meters off the tourists presents :). This is the place to meet with the bolognese homemade cuisine.

Friendly staff, delicious traditional food including game, fish, steaks and many different types of pasta. Best tagliatelle Bolognese, delicious wild boar stew with polenta and steak tagliata. Highly recommended but you must book as it is always full!

Tucked away on a side street, you have to know where to go to find this restaurant, but it's worth it! The wild boar ragu with pollenta is my favourite !
