We spent ten minutes deciding what we wanted to eat whilst we waited for someone, and we decided on Pizzas. As we were ordering we were then told they had no pizzas (they are a pizza restaurant). So we ordered something else and waited 20 mins for our starters and 45 minutes for simple main courses. The sides we ordered... More

On our first evening in Bologna we decided to try this restaurant and I was eager to try the authentic ragu alla bolognese and try the local cuisine. So I chose tagliatelle al ragu and my boyfriend hat the gramigna alla salsiccia. Let me start with the gramigna, a completely new dish to us, with a very nice taste, but... More

Excellent food available, my tortellini with bolognaise was delicious, however the service was poor. We waited a while for our orders to be taken, we both wanted desserts but after 25 minutes of trying to catch the waiters attention where they spent most of their time inside rather at the busy outside area, we lost patience and left the money...

Taste was good. Price was not so expensive. Staff was friendly. I ordered spaghetti with seafood "Bianco" but "Rosso" was surved. They changed my dish but staff didn't apologize. We asked to provide check twice, finally they gave us the receipt. It took about 15 minutes. They looked very busy, but they should pay attention with their services, I think.

The food came out way too late. We waited for half an hour for a steak then another half hour for the pizza. The two pastas we ordered didn't even come out until we complained. This happened when all the other people were being served their dish. The pasta finally did come out but was way too salty. Will never... More

This restaurant was suitably close to our hotel following an exhausting day sightseeing. The food was fresh and tasty, with very good, friendly service. The pizza was excellent.

The best meal we have had in Bologna! Portions are large so make sure you don't order too much. The pasta was excellent...tons of flavor. The caprese salad was another favorite. The red house wine was so good, we ordered a bottle to take back to the hotel. We are definitely going back for more as the pizza they were... More

We have used this restaurant before and always been happy with the quality of food. On visiting this year we were greeted by a waiter who found us a nice private table despite the fact they were extremely busy. He looked after us all night recommending wines, dishes etc and gave us complimentary drinks after I had paid the bill.... More

A place for the tourists. No locals. Have English menus. Pizza was fine. Bad attitude of waiters: the service wasn't good. OK for pizza dinner.

We came across this place because it was one of the few places serving food all day far enough away from all the main tourist haunts. The server was friendly and spoke great English. The Ragu tagliatelle was superb. The chilly olive oil is very high octane. We really liked this place and we've eaten in some of the more... More
