Wonderfully welcoming and and friendly staff at this restaurant. They must be doing something right, it has been here since the 1930s! Great food, very reasonable prices. We will definitely seek out this restaurant on further visits to Bologna.

Looking for a local local place to ear, we found this gem away from the tourist motorway. Not only very friendly and helpful staff, but also local couple next to us with great recommendations. The chocolate and orange mouse is a must.
