The atmosphere is simple, warm, and comfortable. The service is excellent and they know about good food and enjoy sharing what makes a meal special. The food delicious and regional. All this adds up to unforgettable. Bologna is a wonderful city. Not to touristy and full of gems like Trattoria Belfiore.

All dishes were excellent and freshly made in the open kitchen. Very friendly and competent staff. It's unpretentious and you... More

The food here is quite literally inedible - an insult to Italian cuisine. We went for a traditional tagliatelle bolognese and were served something worse than a prepacked pasta meal from the 1980's, my partner literally could not eat more than two mouthfuls. Overcooked pasta with a splat of sauce in the middle which was unfit for human consumption. This... More

Other recommended restaurants were all closed and so my wife and I walked around until we stumbled on this little place. As other reviews mention, the food here was outstanding as was the service.

Great place to go in a smallish group. Chilled house wine served in carafes at unbelievable prices.Outdated 1970s decor inside, but who needs pictures of celebrities when the service... More

I really enjoyed the food, simple but flawless. What made the experience remarkable was the friendly waiter who made us feel really welcome and at ease. If I come back to Bologna, I'll definitely visit Belfiore again.
