The best seafood, and perhaps the best food we ate in Bologna. Incredible selection of seafood, good representation of both northern Italian and southern Italian styles. To start, we had the antipasto crudo di mare, and the alici marinate. We tried 3 excellent pasta dishes: Strigoli gamberi e zucchine, spaghetti allo scogio, and the gnocchi piccolo gambero. Also a risotto, excellent as well. Secondi: grilled monkfish and grilled swordfish were perfectly prepared. Gilled vegetables also worth a try. The waitstaff speak adequate english, were helpful with food and wine recommendations, especially Bruno. We spent nearly 3 hours, were not rushed. The restaurant is frequented by mostly locals and return customers. Advisory: there was a TV on with soccer game, not loud. Still, for a birthday dinner we were more than pleased.
