Il Pirata is not far from where we are staying in Bologna, and on our way to/from the train station. Regardless of the convenience, we thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and also took our friends there when we wanted a comfortable, friendly trattoria that serves wonderful...More

A delightful local trattoria frequented by locals and families. It was around the corner from where we stayed and we returned several times. The menu included authentic hand made pasta dishes, beautifully cooked vegetables and generous serves of prosciutto. Would definitely come back again. PS...More

I got pizza and beer--typical combination for Italians--and I loved it. The service was excellent, friendly and professional. The wait was minimal, and the price very good in terms of quality-price. The restaurant is also ideal for large groups, as it is quite big.

This place may be a bit off the beaten track for some visitors, but it's conveniently located for the Museo di Arte Moderna (MAMbo) and the railway station, and is well worth seeking out for anyone. It's spacious and nicely decorated, and offers a wide...More

I've tried the tagliatelle ragu and the tortellini al ragu at Il Pirata del Porto and highly recommend them (on the other hand, wouldn't recommend the pasta alla scoglio at all). The ambiance is very relaxed and the place spacious, a great change from the...More

By far one of the worst places I dined at. We booked a table, and we found out it was next to screaming children. We asked the waiter if we could have another table, he said the place was fully booked. But we saw many...More
