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...

We ordered pasta with mushrooms and roasted rabbit. Both dishes were quite tasteless. The pasta was overcooked and the rabbit really dry. The dishes were served within 10 min. House wine was really bad too. The only good thing is the nice atmosphere.

We had dinner there. We were going for the tortellini in broth but we changed our minds after we learned that it has pork in it. We had a gnocchi with gorgonzola and tagliatelle with tomatoes. The place has a nice feel to it with the frames hanging from the walls and white draperies in the windows. It really gives... More

We saw this on Gino's TV show and we made a plan that we would sample the Tagliatelle Ragu and OMG - out of this world! I would advise booking as this restaurant is so popular and we even got a picture with Anna Maria herself - she is so lovely - you have just got to visit this lovely... More

When in Bologna, everyone is after the traditional pasta al ragu and lasagna. We went to Trattoria Anna Maria for just that, and ended up sharing 4 different pasta dishes as we couldn't decide! We had the pappardelle al ragu, the lasagna, the gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce and the tortellini with butter and sage. All super good, flavorful and portions... More

This is about the fourth of fifth time I have eaten at Anna Maria during the past few years. When I get to Bologna and want some genuine Bolognese food this is among the best. It's clearly a family restaurant, both the way it is run and from the clientele. I am compulsive about my habits, so I went again... More
