Having arrived in Bologna after a long days travelling we wanted a restaurant not to far from our hotel (The Hotel Touring ...reviewed separately) I came across this restaurant on trip advisor with very good reviews and it was only a 5 minute walk away.
The hotel receptionist made a reservation for us (she said we were lucky to get one at such short notice)
Upon arriving at the restaurant we were welcomed into lovely traditional surroundings by friendly smiling staff.
The service was professional,friendly,humorous and polite all at the same time by a lady we believed to be the owners wife whilst he too was front of house.
The food was delicious with a menu to suit all tastes. The wine too was very good.
It is off the beaten track of the centre of the old town a little but was full ....we were the only English people the other tables all appeared to be locals so that says it all.
Definitely worth going to.

We made two visits to Al Sangiovese. Lunch, and then dinner on our last night in Italy. We enjoyed our lunch so much, that we made dinner reservations for later the same week. Make a reservation. You do not want to miss this special place. Everything we ate was fantastic. The mortadella mousse, lasagna, and fillet with Sangiovino of Predappio are what food memories were made for. And save room for dessert. We plan to be back the next time we visit Bologna.

We have been told by our host that its meant to be one of the best restaurants to eat. You need to book a table few days before ( at least now -Easter time ).
For starters we had goat cheese with mushroom sauce and pie , both very nice.
1st - risotto and 2nd main steak with porchini sauce.
Steak was the best , remember you need to order potatoes and vegetables separately.
Nice dinner, prices reasonable- all was great but menu almost same as another restaurant on the same street.

A really nice small restaurant. Every friendly and attentive serivce. Impeccable italian home made type of food of amazing quality.
Calm and cozy home like environment with a sense of intimacy.
Great wines and a decent choice of single malts.
The price tag is quite competitive for the quality you get at this place
