Found this on the off chance and ended up there for 2 evenings. Superb Pizza. Hand made and wood fired. Exceptional Ragu for the tagliatelle.

Where to start – we were greeted warmly and seated, our order taken cheerfully then it was down hill. The bread was plonked on our table, but we had no plates. We ordered pizza and risotto, the pizza was delivered and I was left sitting waiting on the risotto, when I asked I was told quite abruptly by a waiter... More

We tried this option as a last option as all other eateries were booked out ( New Years Day night). Service was prompt but not overly responsive after this. We ordered the House antipasti to share followed by Pasta Carbonara ( by two for the kids) Zuppa Pesche for my wife and Filleto di Carne Griglia. The Carbonara was very... More

My wife and I visited last night on what was a very cold night. Our welcome couldn't have been warmer. They had a special English menu, always useful, and a great choice. We had bread with added oik, balsamic and parmasan, plus two mains and two drinks. €25. Excellent value for an excellent meal. Authentic pizza cooked in a proper... More

Went for dinner and was seated along the road (couple of doors along) in a much nicer looking dining room. Busy service as now 2 dining rooms being staffed by the same waiters/waitresses. Food was very good, Fish soup to start, full of Mussels, Clams and prawns, soup flavour excellent. Main was Cutlet Bolognese, with Ham & Parmesan sauce delicious.... More

Poor quality food and service but yet expensive. Mediocre pizza, salumi from plastic packs. 2.50 cover charge. Looks packed but at closer inspection, only tourists (like us) inside. To top it all the cash machine was I quote "out of order" when paying. Stay away! It's worth waiting 30 minutes for other restaurants to open.

We went to this restaurant as it was one of the few in Bologna that was open earlier than 7pm for evening food and we wanted a quick meal. Unfortunately, good opening hours were really the only positive thing I can say about this place. The service was incredibly poor. Our party ordered 4 pasta dishes and 2 pizzas. Unfortunately...
