Arrived with two families totalling nine people for coffee at 1030 - were told very sharply we could only have a table large enough for us all if we had a meal (of course all those tables were completely empty mid morning). The waiter smiled as we left. The only unwelcoming place we visited in a warm and friendly city.

Timing for lunch in Italy is quite a hassle, few restaurants don't serve food after time and we are used to not pay attention to time. Despite that we managed to "taste" wonderful "pranzo" here. They have basic menu with 3 choices for entree , first and second plate. By the way, desert and any type of coffee is included. Restaurant leader ( cashier) and ALL waitresses were very helpful and amicable. We decided for provola e vegetables alla griglia, Ribollita (special to scan soup) and filettini di Maiale + prosciutto e patate (mouthwatering)

It was best last minute decision, surely we will go again on next trip to Bologna

Very nice and clean café / restaurant. Great home made food, with honest taste of fresh ingredients. Watch the cook through the open kitchen, it is a pleasure to see him at work: making fresh pasta and gnochi, finishing dishes with fresh herbs, ... his enthusiasm makes you want to taste every dish he is preparing. Good service and fair price. This restaurant is a must-do in Bologna. You just have to go there.

We were taken here as a large group so we virtually took over the premises.
Very impressed by the quality of the food and consistent across the group. Quantities were generous, too.
The kitchen can be seen which provides extra entertainment in a good way. The staff were friendly, and most impressive was a menu replacement at short notice for one group member allergic to cheese.
Wines were enjoyed by all. We can particularly recommend the Sangiovese.

Chose a quiet night but very pleasant and relaxed surroundings. Food was freshly cooked and this could be confirmed as the kitchen area is visible from some parts of the Restaurant. Even saw our meat being carved from a the joint so it was fresh.Quality of the food was excellent and definitely the best over the stay in Bologna.very reasonably priced side dishes and choice of wines . Try the house Sparkling White, it can be recommended.Great find.
