We ate here based on TripAdvisor reviews and blogger reviews and we weren’t disappointed. We booked a table through TripAdvisor. The menu was very good. There was an a la carte or a meat/fish tasting menu, we went a la carte. Starters were the grilled prawns and melanzane parmigiana, both were very good. Next we had ragu and the carbonara tortellini, these were both excellent. We shared the entrecôte and we were blown away, it was wonderful! Dessert was Panna Cotta and a semifreddo, again really tasty. It was the most enjoyable meal, the wine was lovely. The service was friendly and efficient. It’s well worth seeking this place out while in Bologna.

We liked the look of it when we passed one evening - because of the heat everyone was outside underneath the arches - it looked v cosy inside - the service was lovely - perhaps we were a little unlucky with the food because it was fine but not special - some odd combinations (aubergine and peach with fish) - everyone seemed to be having a jolly time - I'd give it another chance but not if I was only in Bologna for a few days

The easy way to find this little restaurant is to walk 10/15 minutes from Piazza Maggiore up Via Castiglione to a gate tower and Teatro Duse on your left ..... turn left and you're effectively there

It's very small as it says in the name, though there are an additional 7 tables outside when weather permits

The dishes here tend to be on the more delicate side in comparison to the general, and the short menu changes frequently to account for what is in the market or in season

For starters, I had some deliciously sweet little scallops, cooked to perfection, while my wife had tiny artichokes which are currently in season.

This was followed by some gently braised white fish which was akin to a cross between haddock and sea bass, but even the owner admitted to being unable to find an English name for it.

For myself, I was a little unimaginative, with spagghettoni. In fact, this was beautifully cooked in a shellfish stock and came with a decent number of small but truly fresh and succulent langoustines.

From the interesting wine list, we followed the suggestion of a white from Romagna called Albana, Unlike so many, I think this wine will "travel" so I'll now try to track it down in UK

This is a lovely place for a quiet and romantic dinner (should the mood so take you), especially if you feel you have been eating far too heavily for several days!

Great food. Salmon smoked in house, spaghetti with sweet shrimp, and cozy wonderful atmosphere. Worth the few minute walk out of the way.
