Our first visit to Anna Maria in 2013 was one of the better meals we had in Bologna. Nothing fancy, no “foams”, deconstructed lasagne, or traditional cooking with “a twist” - just honest to goodness Bolognese cooking. As we walked from the art gallery, on a cold and damp December day, I was genuinely salivating at the thought of lunch.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lived in Bologna. I ate 'tortellini in brodo' at every restaurant I visited during my stay and these were full of flavour. My partner ordered the tagliatelle al ragu, and enjoyed the sauce and slightly al dente pasta. The staff were very nice. The bread was warm and delicious.

Our Taxi driver recommended this eatery and on arrival we visited to find it was fully booked. Therefore we reserved a table for 6 for Sunday evening. Whilst I couldn't complain about the foods quality it was rather unimaginative and pricey. The service was uncomfortably quick. There are so many wondeful restaurants in the city,this is not one of them... More

Visited with my wife without a reservation and managed to get a table with no real problem. It was a busy Saturday lunchtime. I had read a review on this place via a local expats blog and it did not disappoint. I had the tortellini with broth which was fantastic and my wife had the tortellini stuffed with cheese. Also...

While working in Italy we visited Bologna for the first time and our sponsors took us to Trattoria Anna Maria for a relaxing evening of good food and great wine.

Very popular with locals and you can see why. Great food especially the Tortolini. Good wine. Try it - it's real Italy

The title of this review describes two contrasting experiences at the same restaurant. On one day we enjoyed a delicious lunch, where the helpful waitress allowed us to have two smaller portions as we could not decide which pasta dish to try as both sounded delicious. Delicious they were indeed, so delicious in fact, we decided to book an evening... More

I had dinner at Anna Maria my last night in Bologna. The place itself is cozy and genuine with a lot of locals. The bad thing is that it didn't really feel like the chefs put any effort or love in the dishes. The dishes came within a few minutes of order. In my opinion that is a sign of... More

We happened upon Anna Maria's on an extended walking tour of Bologna. We had just waded through the University and turned down the Via delle Belle Arti. The restaurant is decidedly not "touristy." Lots of pictures on the wall. A classic Italian kitchen that produces some wonderful Bolognese dishes in a humble yet delicious way. It being lunch, we settled... More

We always have at least one meal at Trattoria Anna Maria whenever we are in Bologna. Anna Marie herself is in the kitchen with her staff. She makes frequent visits to the dining room to talk to friends enjoying their food and wine. Our favorites are the Lasagne al Forno, Tortellini in Brodo, and Gramigna. There is a storefront just...
