My husband and I had one day in Bologna and we were looking to have dinner before leaving the city. It was late afternoon and not quite the dinner hour, but Nicola and his staff were kind enough to make us pizza and salad.The pizza was wonderfully fresh and delicious! The crust was perfect and the toppings plentiful. The salad... More

Made a couple of visits. Food is ok but nothing special. The place is very rushed, no real warm welcome but one waiter in particular seems to be troublesome especially to tourists. Heard numerous visitors arguing with him about the bill amongst other things! He doesn't seem too bothered in pleasing customers.. This is a shame. I presume he is... More

Our son is living in Bologna going to the university here. He brought us to his favorite pizza restaurant in town. The service was welcoming and lovely. The pizza was incredible!!!

The atmosphere was non-existent, the pizza was OK but nothing special, the service was forgetful (what about those salads we ordered? now what about forks to eat the salads with? etc), and the prices are pretty high. Wouldn't recommend it unless you're tired of hunting for a place open on a holiday evening.

We found this pizzeria on our last night in Bologna - unfortunately for us, or we would definitely have eaten here again. The staff were very friendly and the food was great (the seafood pasta was delicious!). Also we found it better value for money than some of the other restaurants we had eaten in.

Great pizza but tried to charge double price for it and higher cover charge than in the menu. Both immediately changed when challenged. Avoid.

Offered bruschetta almost before we had looked at the menu - so with no time to ponder if this was a freebie tasting it was brought to the table. It was delicious but we were charged €20 for four bruschetta and some small arancini and then a €12 cover change on top! This amounted to half the cost of the... More

I was happy to find a free table on Easter Monday. The service was quick and friendly and they have a huge menu. But: 1) Be careful of unabashed upselling. "Would you like a small selection of Bruschetta as a starter". Price = 5 EUR per person 2) High cover charge: 3 EUR per person for just a table cloth... More

My husband and I are in for three days. Of course our eating times are off and were hungry around 3:30. Their kitchen was closed, but they graciously cooked pizza of our choice. I had the 4 Stagioni and my husband had the Diavola. We shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed our wonderful meal outside. The staff were pleasant... More
