Bologna is a great place for foodies and this place is a perfect combination of the local cuisine and character. It's all contained in a charming setting with the owner making the experience truly memorable. I have a tradition of having the "last supper" in Italy in the city of departure before going back to the US and this is... More

If you want a proper Italian experience, this is the place to go! Located in a side street under lodges, slightly below street level, crammy & small plaice, walls full of art pieces & photos ( floor to ceiling ), Italian opera music & the food is excellent! The owner Emanuele finishes off your experience nicely !

Had been to Drogheria many years ago and found it quite charming. What a disappointment this time. We dined in a freezing cold cellar with little or no heat. Our fellow diners were wearing coats. The food was mediocre at best and the wine list totally useless: out of the five bottles we asked for, they were either out of... More

Local restaurant typically Italian where the establishment is owner-owned and managed. You are greeted and seated by the owner who recites to you the menu for the day. He pretty much recommends what's good and what's better on the day's menu and then let's you have at it. The several dishes at this late lunchtime meal were excellent and lived... More

We last went to Drogheria della Rosa fourteen months ago and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Quirky, fun and good food. All at a reasonable price. On this, our second visit to Bologna, we thought we'd go again with some friends but were worried by some of the more recent reviews. Sadly, it lived up to the criticisms... More

What an overrated restaurant! We were underwhelmed by each part of the meal here, and then we were surprised to get a bill with absolutely zero accounting on it. It simply read 150 euros -- after four pastas and one poultry second plate and two bottles of reasonable wine. There's no way we racked up such a bill (and I... More

Our adult daughter booked this restaurant for a meal.It was our one and only night in Bologna, the last night of our Italian trip and our wedding anniversary so we had high expectations of a good night out and it didn't disappoint.It was certainly different in all the ways mentioned in other reviews. .no visible menu for example. But the... More

Excellent food and an even better atmosphere! When the weather is warm you generally eat under the portico that runs along the street (like most streets in Bologna). Bolognese food done in an intelligent way. Emmanuelle the owner is an unforgettable person.
