I can assure this is the best restaurant in Bologna if you are looking for something special and delightful. Read carefully the menu and you'll find something for you both fish or meat. Don't forget to ask for dessert.

This is a very unassuming restaurant not in the main restaurant area but well worth the visit. It would be easy to walk past and not really notice it but you'll be in for a treat if you go in. Not fancy decor but the...More
