A nice very popular restaurant in the Corte Isolani. The prices are not high and there is a variety of choice here.

Lovely little caffeteria in the beautiful Corte Isolani (that leads to Santo Stefano, which is well worth checking out). Cheap, very cheerful service and the food is great! We had the gluten free selection of cheeses and cold meats, a piadina and some decent local wine. A special mention must go to the staff who were excellent!!

This is a great place tucked away in a courtyard near to the Basilica di Santa Stefano. We had a glass of local wine and a sampler plate of local meats, cheeses and warm and cold bread. For vegetarians there are vegetable dishes instead of meat. We would recommend this place and the food. We were sitting downstairs .

We came across this place while exploring the city during the day and decided to visit that night. There was an option of a plate of food and a cocktail for €10 I chose the seafood and my friend opted for the cheesy one. We got more food than we expected, it is basically a tapas style plate of nibbles,... More

This was our first stop for food after landing in Bologna. Part of the coeliac association, this cafe had a small but decent selection of gluten free items. We had a selection of cheeses, meats, and GF bread to share - perfect for lunch. They also serve Daura GF beer. There were other options too, such as salads. The location... More

It's an idyllic place! Amazing food and service!!! We had different appetizers, tagliatelle, tortelloni, tortellacci, drinks (mojito, aperol, gin tonic), and even dessert!! (Cupolina cioccolato). We enjoyed our food so much, we actually order some more tagliatelle and shared it. After a couple of days around Italy, I was amazed to find a place with such a good and friendly... More

This is a great cafe' fora light or otherwise lunch. They have a delightful assortment of light lunches that include a beverage of your choice ( including a Spritz, or wine made by the owner-excellent Bianco). The lasagna bolognese was very tasty, and the bruschetta plate with drink was delicious. You can sit in the piazza under the portico, or... More

Enjoyed a coffee here earlier in the week, and returned again today for lunch. Can recommend the insalata con feta, and my companion's insalata Buongustaio was completely finished so must have been good! Friendly staff.

The service. SO friendly. Fantastic location and the food was delicious. I had a salad starter and tortellini main. With local wine. And lots of bread. Very satisfying and priced far better than the more expensive choices across the square. I dined in the courtyard as it was a windy evening. But atmosphere mall the same. Really nice. Five stars.

Wonderful experience at this cafe with both good and service! We enjoyed an afternoon aperitivo, which included any drink on the menu and a gluten-free assortment of meats, cheese, potato chips, and different breads. We also enjoyed the gluten-free tiramisu. This was such a good experience since aperitivo is a part of the culture here that is nice to enjoy.... More
