A friendly place with nice wine and efficient cheerful staff. We were brought plates of substantial food - freshly prepared and very nice, not charged for.

Stopped here between 19:00-19:30 whilst waiting for the restaurant linked to this bar to open. My parents had drinks at 5 Euros each (Aperol spritz and prosecco) and along came a plate of nibbles and a large bowl of crisps too. It was great value and a nice spot to have a drink before dinner

This "wine bar" is probably the little brother of the restaurant on the other side of the street. Molto simpatico. After lots of sightseeing we landed there for lunch. The chef came to explain the daily specials. Daily specials prepared on the spot, with fresh ingredients. Probably best for cold dishes, with lots of vegetables and cold meats. That is... More

We ordered a couple of drinks and saw everyone else had a platter of food on the table. Sure enough, we got one too. Then another with the next drink... Dinner plans cancelled! The staff really made our evening, especially Salvo and Vincenzo. Many cocktails, glasses of wine, spritzs (must try local tipple). We tried to stumble away home near... More

Very welcome on a hot night - Aperol spritzer !!! And an enormous platter of freebie snacks went with it. My only moan is that when I was left alone I tried to order another drink and began to think I was transparent! Got it eventually.

Like most restaurants and bars in Bologna often a good part of the tables are in the arcades or on parts of the road or piazza. This is part of the charm of Italy and its historic cities. The snacks which are served free from 18:00 onwards were fresh and very generous. A lovely place to spend some time alone... More

This is a great bar - the restaurant which we didn't visit is over the road. We stopped here on the way back from the station as we had been out to Cesenatico for the day and it was quite late. The music was good, and when asked what wine was good, the waiter recommended Ribolla. It was a lovely... More

This was the first bar we stopped at after a mid evening arrival in Bologna. Charming bar staff, very substantial nibbles and perfectly good prosecco. Just what we felt like. Finished off with an icecream from across the road. Easy.
