The huge platter of spaghetti allo scoglio was enough for two people, and was stunning to look at and tasty to eat. The branzino was perfectly cooked. The mixed cooked vegetables (asparagus, spinach and green beans) were delicious and not overcooked. The owner and staff...More

We had some pizza and it was the worst we had for a long time. Both were watery, the dough therefore soggy and the diavolo pizza had way too much grease drops swimming on top. The buffalo mozzarella we had as a starter was okay...More

This restaurant was close to our apartment so it was a no brainer to go there for our first evening meal. It had a super atmosphere, filled with locals and possibly the odd tourist. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, the tagliatelle with ragu...More

The restaurant is in the center of Bologna, not far away from the two towers, so even if there's not a great amount of parking places close to it, it's really easy to get to. The restaurant is cosy, it's ceiling is carpeted with football t-shirts, signed by their original owners. It's perfect for a quick lunch before going back to work, if you don't have much time, but also for birthday, graduation parties or for company meetings. Moreover it's possible to take away almost every dish in the menu from pasta, to meat, to fish and obviously, pizza. Reservations are always welcomed. The pizza is baked in firewood oven and all the courses are prepared at the time or, in the case of pasta al forno lie Lasagne, in the morning. It has also a large choice of desserts, from tiramisu, to cakes, to sorbetto, to fruit. In short, there's something for everyone!
