Elegant interior and pleasant service. The pasta course was A+, as was the veal cutlet entree. The fish entree was terrible. The fish did not taste fresh. The wine they recommended was also not very good. Maybe a B. Nice grappa, though.

This is an excellent restaurant if you want to eat some very good italian food, cooked in Bologna, a city renowed for the good food connoisseurs.

Dreadful service, food no better. Would not go again if they paid me to do so. Restaurants in Bologna do try to be good. This one did not care.

This was our third visit to Trattoria Battibecco over the past 18 months or so. This time to Bologna was a short shopping trip. Like our previous meals this one was superb. A very nice selection off of both meat and seafood menus. Excellent wines offered. All for a very good price and value. Impeccable service. We will always visit... More

This restaurant disappointed us because it was our last night, and the very best food that we had in Bologna over five days and ten meals. Several dishes were the very best of kind that I have ever had; the best salad ever, the best fried calamari ever. Anywhere in the world. The pastas were great. We shared an entree... More

This trattoria is known by the well-to-do Bolognese as an intimate, fine-dining experience that does not disappoint. The selective menu is a challenge for diners, as each mouth-watering option is appealing; it means you have no choice to return! Which is a happy outcome of the whole experience.

Went to Battibecco with some friends on a saturday evening. We shared an entree, duck liver, which was fantastic, then i had homemade pasta and a chocolate mousse. Every dish was delucious and beautifully presented. Service was great too, though i'd personally preferred staff smiled a bit more. Prices arent low but that is in line with the very high... More

We have eaten seven restaurant meals since our arrival in Italy, and this was the best! Trattoria Battibecco's menu has a side for meat and side for fish - we tried the fish side and shared 2 appetizers and 2 main courses. We highly recommend the shrimp burgers in the appetizers and the roasted Turbo for the main course -... More

Food was excellent, staff attentive and unlike some other restaurants there was enough room between tables not to have to listen to other people's conversations. The manager, who spoke perfect English, allowed me to practice my limited Italian when chatting and ordering, thank you. We are going back for our last night in Bologna. Do make a booking!
