This is a small Osteria with 8 tables. You must reserve before going there. Great for lunch and dinner. Definitely recommended in Bologna

I lived in Bologna for a year and Osteria Broccaindosso was my no.1 favourite place to go. I am Irish and I had broken Italian, but you don't need to speak Italian at all to have great service and even better food. I loved bringing my friends and visitors here. I am also a Coeliac so I was able to... More

I arrived in Bologna on a late flight and visited this restaurant at near 11pm. Although they were almost full the waiter made me welcome and suggested the best of what was left on the menu. The steak was just short of a pulse but oh so tender. The creme caramel very different from the French style, being more dense,... More

This place was recommended by our local host and is clearly a popular spot. The food was excellent, traditional fare. Both the pasta dishes we had and the cottoletta we shared were terrific. And we were given a little complimentary taste of the house's very rich, very delicious tiramisu. The downside to this place is that it was just all... More

Cam here with a local friend. This place did not disappoint. Not as cheap as some of the other osterias in the area but worth every penny! The dessert platter is amazing! .. everything is amazing :)

Would recommend. Wines were a bit dissapointing but the food - around 20euro for two courses - was amazing. Both pasta with sausages and tortellini in broth tasted very authentic. Tagliata was superb. Save some space for the house dessert as it was a lovely offer!

Small and welcoming venue.Very friendly and obliging staff. Fast service;maybe a little too fast in our case but understandable as the tables are in high demand.A small queue formed outside full of locals so definitely a good sign. Excellent food and generous portions. Was recommended this place by a former Bolognese resident and it did not fall short. Make a... More

I think we lucked out when we fell upon this place for lunch/early dinner. It was our first meal in Bologna and it set the bar for everything else we ate during our 5 day stay. The staff was amazing, so kind and attentive. Our food was so rich and delicious that we couldn't finish everything. The chef's pasta trio... More
