Best ravioli EVER! Unique quality food in the countryside 10 minutes outside Bologna. Don't get fooled by the rustique surroundings!

We arrived on Tuesday just after 8pm without a reservation and were led around the back and upstairs to 1 of 3 small dining rooms. When we left we could see that every seat was full. The staff were quick and professional and friendly in spite of being so busy - they said it was the norm. We found the... More

A colleague took me to this restaurant for lunch. We had a plate with 3 kinds of pasta, there were excellent and home made. Then we had the signature dish of the restaurant : beef grilled and cook in herb oil. The meat was very tender and perfectly cooked. Very good place.

I'm so glad I listened to a friends recommendation and dined at this fantastic Trattoria. Go hungry as the prices are standardized and with the delicious local dishes that keep coming and coming, it's difficult to control your appetite!

I ate here after discovering that my hotel wasn't serving dinner that evening. The meal was lovely, I had fettuccini bolognaise (when in Bologna) and a decadent tiramisu. The staff were friendly and helpful what with my abysmal Italian. What impressed me the most was after being told it was close by my hotel, the taxi ride out there cost... More

This restaurant is quite famous in the area for the very good quality of the dishes, however tagliata and desserts are outstanding. The first is directly served in the pan where it is cooked, with a very tasteful olive oil that acquires the meat flavour and doesn't let any other chance that to mop it up with the bread. Desserts... More

Stopped by hear for lunch on our way down the highway. Food here is great, albeit on the pricey side. We really enjoyed the steak and the pasta bolognese.

Typical Italian homemade food served in this busy trattoria. Food cooked to perfection with very acceptable service in a vibrant atmosphere.

Hi. From outside you won't pay a penny for this restaurant. When you just get in it looks rustic but then you start eating. Starter in the average, first course wow, second course (tagliata) it's simply fantastic. It's served in pan full of olive oil and you just help yourself. After the tagliata the waitress asked for eggs in the... More
