I booked this restaurant for lunch after having read the reviews on here. We were not disappointed. Adventurous menu, delicious combinations of flavour and texture. They were really busy and I was very glad we had booked ahead. Extraordinary, fresh, imaginatively prepared and delicious lunch.

Description
Tiny and cozy restaurant, placed in the city centre of Bologna, close to the main square, Piazza Maggiore and close to the train station and the most popular monuments. The restaurant suggests traditional cuisine modernized by new matches of flavours and textures. Small wine list focused on local wine with an attention for italian and international wines. A basement set up for event and art exhibitions.
