Il Cantuccio is a special restaurant in every way. The food was exquisite and the service impeccable. The outdoor dining area charming. The owner and staff go out of their way to make you feel special. We were a party of four and all four...appetizers and entrees were incredible, made with the freshest of ingredients and prepared to perfection. We travel a lot and know the difference between good and fabulous dining - this rates at the higher end of our dining experiences. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Bologna.More
Outstanding cuisine! I’ve always been in love with tartare and their tuna tartare is probably the best I’ve ever had in my life.
I visited Nathan’s Cantuccio and he welcomed my friends and me with his cheerful smile, delicious food and a wide selection of...typical Italian wines. He suggested us the best wine for what we ordered and Jesus, he hit the nail on the head!More
So lucky to have stumbled upon this gem!! The dishes were so delish, containing fresh, local ingredients. The service was out of this world, I would like to thank Nathan, the waiter, who kindly translated the menu for us and took his time to kindly...give us suggestions. The price was very reasonable for the city centre too. 100% would recommendMore
So yeah, you're in Bologna, and you're really *really* in the mood for Seafood - *this* is probably where you should end up. The ingredients are impeccably sourced (albeit from a little bit of a distance), and prepared just as carefully - and yes, the...chef is clearly a bit of a genius at this!
Add in a welcoming and friendly staff, a great wine list, and a location right in Il Centro, and, well, you couldn't ask for much more.
*We* plan on coming here repeatedly 😇More
I really used to love the old Cantuccio management but I have to admit that the current version of this small seafood restaurant is even better.
I live in Bologna and can simply state that there are few restaurants comparable in food quality and service....Madam Livia is always present with a warm smile and a lot of customer care. The entire staff is very professional.
When it comes to cooking, I can just say that they select excellent ingredients and treat them properly.
This place is great for important occasions; doesn't matter if it has to be a perfect dinner with an important customer or a memorable romantic meal with your partner.More

It is friendly but sometimes a bit too crowded and the 6-7 dishes menu may be a bit too much, anyway they are not full-size dishes so if it is too much depends from your habits and appetite. Its is anyway a good place to have dinner and the prices may vary between 40 and 60 euros, depending on how much fish do you choose to eat. Cheers!
