The pizza was tasty and a really huge portion. The service was good and there was no problem with English. I would definitely recommend if you want a nice pizza in Bologna.

Great meals, large servings, what I assume to be a nice family run ambience. In a fairly residential section in the north end of the centre (not far from the train station). They served great stuff, were patient with our managing of Italian language. Would...More

On a side street near the station, Veliero is easy to miss in Bologna. However, if you're in tat part of town and looking for excellent pizza it's worth a visit; the pasta is only OK by Bologna's high standards. The service is good and...More

Went for lunch at around noon, was not crowded at all.. Good atmosphere and great service from the staff. Lunch was ready within 10 mins. The pizza was good and the tagliatelle ragu was to die for! Worth the 30something euros paid.

The place is a tad cramped and gets crowded very fast. 19:30+ I recommend making reservations. Atmosphere aside, the food was pleasant and prepared quickly.

I chose this restaurant because it was near the hotel where I was staying, and I wanted to get a relatively quick dinner after a long travel day. The pizza was good, but not the best I've had in Italy. Very reasonably priced. I'd recommend...More

I had no trouble just walking in without a reservation on a Wednesday lunchtime, but the weekend might be a different matter. I'd say you need a reservation if you want to be sure.
