Daniele is a genius, this is the temple of food. I have 3 fav restaurants worldwide and this is one of them. If you want to have a lifetime food experience go and enjoy the art of osteria, Italy should be all like this place.. unfortunately it is not.

During two weeks in Bologna I have never experienced such a bad and unacceptable service. Although I have booked personally two days before, no table was reserved. Unfriendly they offered the worst table in the whole restaurant. Asking for an other still available table the owner of this crappy restaurant freaked out and shouted us to go. I have to... More

I never get tired of eating at this fabulous restaurant. A pleasant 10-minute walk from the center of town (Piazza Maggiore), you will need a reservation to dine here. Call them directly or ask your hotel to book for you. You l most likely love anything you order here. The meats on the antipasto plate are out of this world.... More

I will try, in the circumstances, to make this a fair and balanced review. But please be aware that this is not a review of food, service or ambience as we never actually made it to the restaurant. Having booked via Facebook and supplied my phone number to 'complete the reservation' we were looking forward to our visit. At 4pm... More

There are two rooms here, seperated by the street. One looks great, the other not. Whilst welcomed nicely with our basic touristic Italian on entry to the smaller newer room, that;s pretty much where the good service stopped for us. Having seen all the more Italian looking folks in the main room and the more touristic folks in your smaller... More

Dined here on our first night in Bologna. Like all the osteria, the atmosphere is cosy with great local food, expertly prepared and served from friendly staff. I had tagliatelle ragù (obviously a local classic) and I was not disappointed. Our friends had their 6 year old son with them and he had the tagliatelle too - kid's potion and... More

This is one of the two best in Bologna, the other being Battibecco. It is small, but extremely well designed for comfort; there is not really a bad, or cramped, table in the house. The table near the door can be a little hectic, as so many people are coming and going (mostly because people arrive without a reservation, and... More

This is traditional fine dining, Bologna-style. Perfect for a business dinner or a romantic evening, the dishes are traditional, the service is attentive and the food is delicious. It is somewhat pricey, but definitely worth it for the experience. I can highly recommend the pigeon: extraordinary.

A very cozy restaurant near to Porta Saragozza, one of the portals in the medieval walls of Bologna. We were warmly welcomed although we arrived at 2.15 pm which is quite late for an Italian lunch. The menu is irresistible, the dishes are explained by the staff and they also recommend you well. We started with a dish to share... More
