Based on reviews here on TA thought I’d treat myself to a nice pizza. Made a reservation but when arrived the door was still locked and chef came to open the door.. Service was appalling, not very friendly as when the lady came round to...More

Very friendly atmosphere, nice food. A bit hectic and we were waiting very long for the food, as their computer lost our order. We had pizza and other stuff, enjoyed fish, meat and pasta, too

Nice venue with special decoration simulating a white cave. Friendly service, fast and effective. The food is ok, with no pretensions. Nice pizzas and pasta for a reasonable price. The venue is quite big for welcoming groups counting big tables and arranging them if necessary....More

Having been to Italy numerous times, this is one of the best pizzas I have tried. Would re visit if I return to Bologna.

Happened upon the place by chance. Their pizzas are flawless, simple and everything is very reasonably priced. There is a family feel to the restaurant, a very nice atmosphere amongst the staff. Fantastic waitresses.

We went here because we couldn't get into another place nearby. Sitting outside the service was patchy.When some of the food didn't arrive, we were met with grumpiness and self-justification. It could have been good. The grappa was a rip-off @€7

I don't understand some of the reviews. This was perfect for us. We have travelled round a lot of Italy and know what we like and this place did not disappoint. Friday night and no wait for a table and given lovely window one. Wine...More

I can't answer that directly. The Italians are very good at coeliac diets; however, in the past they had difficulty in understanding vegetarianism [partly because 'carne' means meat, but not 'salume'[ preserved meats].My... More
