Typical atmosphere and menu of a local trattoria. The food was all very tasty and freshly prepared. The service amused us - when I asked for risotto I was told 'pah - no one has risotto here - if you want risotto go to milan'...More

Fantastico! The manager of the R&B where we stayed made the reservation. The barber I went to recommended it. This is what you expect when you come to Italy to eat great food. Even though we went early there were a lot of full tables...More

Decor as you come in is quite tacky and the bathroom had no working tap. We ordered pasta to begin with which was fine, but pretty small and average tasting for the price. We ordered potatoes to accompany this, which they didn’t actually bring until...More

Stellar stellar pasta, freshly made in-house, mom taking your order, dad coming around and asking about the wine, son manning the front, this is pretty much the quintessential Bologna experience. Yes there is a menu, but really, listen to mom's recitation. And yes, if they...More
