This was just the Bolognese lunch we were looking for. Quaint cozy setting, surrounded by regulars (warmly greeted by owner) delicious food and excellent service. We had the spuma di mortadella, gnocchi and tagliatelle with ragu followed by ice cream with basalmic reduction. Just perfect!

Hidden in the sideway of one of most prestigious and touristic streets of Bologna, Gianni is a nice surprise. Although they offer all classical Bolognese dishes they still do that with their own touch and subtle creativity. Risotto con parmigiano and tortellini con ricotta as...More
