This was walking distance from our hotel, and chosen after consulting TA reviews - which mentioned the strong personality of the owner! We have found that in such establishments it is best to go with the flow, and let them help you with menu selections. This worked great, between us we selected a shared starter platter, followed by a pasta... More

We went in at 8pm and were the first customers, 1 hour later the place was full, mostly Italians. The owner was very friendly and asked several times the food was good. Not all of the menu was available. Dessert was delichious. After dinner we asked for limoncello, which was home made. When we asked for a refill, the bottle... More

Don't go there if you're looking for elegance and a refined service. Go there if you want to taste the real thing in Bologna! Do not miss "tagliatelle al ragù" which are very close to perfection. Same thing for "crescentine": light, tasty, not greasy at all. "Tortellini" are also very good. I was just a bit disappointed by "cotoletta bolognese",... More

I visited this restaurant for lunch with a friend. We were seated very easily (it was still only 12:30pm, later it got much more busy). We ordered the tortellini en brodo and the tagliatelle al ragu, and went all out and got dessert as well, creme caramel and zuppa Inglese. The food was absolutely delicious. All up it was €38...

This is a fantastic place for Italians and tourists alike. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is amazing. The host, Max Dynamite, is such an awesome guy. You'll feel like eating in a true Italian house.

We were advised to go there by a friend from Bologna, se when we went off the train we walked straight there. It was almost 2pm (hour which it was said they were closing the kitchen) and made no reservation. Nevertheless, the owner welcomed us in and got a table ready for us. He recommended us the best dishes and... More

The service was very good in this restaurant but you do need to book in order to get a table. Our pasta dishes were delightful particularly the gnocchi dish. The main course was a little less interesting but still quite enjoyable. Thevguu staff were very friendly and helpful. This is definitely a local restaurant not aimed at tourists.

This is a perfect place if you need to grab lunch in between trains. Filled with locals, we were the only Americans there. Good food and a good price! I recommend. It for sure.

I read about LGDNA over on Leaveyourdailyhell.com, Robert Schrader's trustworthy travel website. He has never steered me wrong, and figured this time would be no different. The food was absolute perfection. Easily top three meals I've had in Italy. The owner, Max, is very funny and is a professional bass fisher (what he called "same to the typical American hobby")...
