Dear 20,171 Readers (last count...), I have been a little bit absent of late but a visit to Da Nello in Bologna is just too compelling... Piccola and I had a very nice post Xmas break in our native Italy, touching my hometown Trieste, Perugia and lastly Bologna. This delightful town has three nicknames: "la Dotta" - "the Erudite" as...

Found this restaurant occasionally but after the first visit spent all our dinners there. For sure this place is worth to visit but you should reserve the table in advance. Very good specialties, pasta and carciofi.

Nice, busy place with good vibe for a clearly tourist-driven place. Our waiter was fast and charming. Pasta and risotto were excellent. House sangiovese is solid. But my partridge al forno was inedible: so tough couldn't even cut with a knife. Told the waiter if was "too forno" and he tried to explain that it was cooked in a pan... More

My son and I went here for lunch on the recommendation of our hotel - we asked for a simple trattoria, and this was more of a white table cloth restaurant, so that might influence my review. I found the whole experience kind of frantic, with waiters zipping around as fast as possible, service slow, and food good, but not... More

We enjoyed our visit here. The service is really good. We had a very nice waiter. The lasagne is fabulous, very saucy, cheesy and meaty. It is great. The tortellini in brodo was delicious. First time Iv had it, I'd get it again I enjoyed it very much.

We were a group of 4 people and we all chose pasta. The doses were very little however tasty. We found it a little bit expensive for what you get to eat. For 3 baskets of bread we paid 14 euros....

The resturant came highly recommended and had great reviews. Sadly it was not our experience. The service was fast and friendly but the Tagliatelle Bolognese was tasteless with very little actual sauce. Veal liver was tasty but on the plate with a bit of mash, not at all as described on the menu. The deserts were good portions and nice.... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel owner. It is a small but very high quality authentic Italian restaurant. All the food we had was incredible and I would highly recommend it. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was fabulous also.
