We arrived there early in the afternoon and waited quite a bit to finish organizing. We received a tasting of white wine and cheese and a local sausage. We ordered one serving of a selection of cheeses (12 euros) which was relatively small for a single person (no more than 150 grams) but very tasty. Later we ordered 2 green... More

I will never come to Bologna without visiting Drogheria, full stop, the end. Feels like family. The food, wine, atmosphere and service make this unique place a must have. Thank you again Emanuele for a singular experience!

My friends and me had a good dinner in this painteresque restaurant. It is like a very old store where you can taste traditional dishes from Bologna. To remark, the home-made lasagna and the mortadella. I recommend to try this restaurant if you want to try traditional cuisine in a painteresque restaurant

We ate here on a quiet Sunday evening - we had been unable to make a reservation on the Saturday evening. This restaurant is in an excentric setting with not too much space and it might feel a little different when full. We did not see a menu ( or the prices) but the engaging owner Emanuele Addone recited the... More

This is a lovely restaurant located in what used to be old style pharmacy. The service was courteous without being over-present (I don't like being asked how I am enjoying my food every 2 minutes). But the food was just perfect. I grew up in Italy and this was really delicious above and beyond the good food we all take... More

The restaurant is small and quirky and crammed with interesting art. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the proprietor is a real character who spent time chatting with everyone in the restaurant. There was no menu, not even a blackboard, but the choice is fine and the staff are happy to recommend the top dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Bologna is a great place for foodies and this place is a perfect combination of the local cuisine and character. It's all contained in a charming setting with the owner making the experience truly memorable. I have a tradition of having the "last supper" in Italy in the city of departure before going back to the US and this is... More

If you want a proper Italian experience, this is the place to go! Located in a side street under lodges, slightly below street level, crammy & small plaice, walls full of art pieces & photos ( floor to ceiling ), Italian opera music & the food is excellent! The owner Emanuele finishes off your experience nicely !

Had been to Drogheria many years ago and found it quite charming. What a disappointment this time. We dined in a freezing cold cellar with little or no heat. Our fellow diners were wearing coats. The food was mediocre at best and the wine list totally useless: out of the five bottles we asked for, they were either out of... More
