Met the chef Oliver accidently and he invited us to try his place. We were treated exceptionally, and introduced to a few of Oliver's dishes. When we were quite full, he brought out a sample of his Pistaccio salted ice cream. I don't remember anything more delicious ever passing my lips😋 This place is definitely on my itinerary next time... More

A friendly, informal trattoria in the historical center of Bologna with a nice courtyard during summer months where, unlike most of the other restaurants there, the emphasis is upon fish and vegetarian options—particularly potatoes and eggplant. The fish options tend towards amberjack, mackerel, sardines and anchovies, but there were tuna and John Dory (St. Pierre) options on the menu when... More

I remember the place very fondly partly because it's very hot in the summer without AC but the Sicilian fish dishes were so pleasant and incredible. I was there many times with a large group of people and the service was great.

Meals very accurate and interesting, never trivial or boring. Nice atmosphere and personnel very kind and gentle. Good selection of wine and spirits (grappa).

I hadn't been to eat here for a while. I was very happy to find that The food is still great! There was also a very nice athmosphere, so nothing has changed! I hope people continue to appreciate this restaurant, which serves sicilian dishes, mainly fish and vegetable based, as I do! Prices are very reasonable

If you're getting a little "pasta'd out" in Bologna and can't face another bowl of Ragu, Pane e Panelle is a refreshing change with a Sicilian influenced menu offering a good choice of freshly prepared fish, shelfish and vegetarian options. The staff are extremely helpful and know exactly what's in each dish. Highly recommended.

I had never been to Sicily and thus never tasted food from this Italian region. When I was in Bologna for work, colleagues proposed to go here for diner - it was perfect! We got a table in the small outside court, the atmosphere was very Mediterranean and welcoming. The staff was great, proposing options considering my dietary restrictions and... More

This restaurant offers Sicilian dishes and is a good change from the usual Bologna food. Maybe that was the problem, is that we were really in the mood for Bologna food, but we were not impressed. Still, it was not bad. I felt it was a little pricey for the quality.

Nevertheless I came here many other times having good food, this time I had a bad experience. I waited about 30 mins for my order. Many other guests seemed bored for the long wait. A simple salmon salad was almost a plain salad (12euro)....indeed not a very tasty salad. Sweeties and dishes in general were so small that they looked... More
