Very nice restaurant with friendly, welcoming staff and well prepared food. Standard pasta, salads, main dishes similar to the style you would find in your upscale city restaurant in the USA. Our slightly homesick dining partners really enjoyed this meal because it was “just like...More

The question is which scale to use? If you rate Il Posto as a local restaurant with good kitchen and quality servings then it can be a four dots very good. But if you rate it on an international scale then it only adds up...More

Opening from Tuesday to Friday for lunch and from Monday to Saturday from 19.00 PM to 01.00 AM for dinner. The historical former "Osteria della chiesa", in the past was a meeting place for artists of the music jazz and rock scene of Bologna. Famous musicians and singers had a reserved table here, and our stage have seen rising stars of italian and european music moving their first steps. The young Chef and Owner Gianpaolo serves a perfect mix of typical cuisine from Bologna great tradition and revisited dishes from italian contemporary style. Everything here is homemade with selected ingredients. Pasta,bread and desserts are prepared everyday fresh for you. Il Posto is a little romantic restaurant , you can dine by candlelight, and on summer we have a little patio on the backyard.
