So disappointed, no highlights, only thing that tasted good was the water, from a bottle. Sweaty cheese in/on dishes with it. Flabby pizza's (actually disgusting in the middle). Bruschetta was even wrong! Marcio.

Food was great. Liked the ambience. And the service was awesome too. They replaced a pasta for me for free because they I wrongly ordered one with ham in it.

went there on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. Bad idea. Dull decor, dull food, ineffectual but pleasant service . Very large menu but the product served is dull in the extreme. The small pizza place about 200 meters along the road is better value...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!
