A cheerful family-style eatery that is consistently buzzing, Antica Bologna is a great option for couples of small groups (I've never been in a group larger than 4 as it's a relatively small place). I particularly recommend the pasta dishes - especially the ragu, which...More

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
