This is my second review for this restaurant. We weren't meant to be there at all but were badly let down by another restaurant and managed to get into here last minute. The waiters were welcoming and the restaurant is very well organised even though it was very busy. Before we'd even sat down there was water and a glass... More

Being English speaking tourists, it was nice to go to a place where they spoke English as well as Italian. This was the first time myself and my fiancé have been to Bologna and I would totally go back for their food! We were able to taste traditional Italian cuisine alongside their house white wine!

Myself and my Fiancée dined here without reservation, and were welcomed by a gorgeous and cosy venue, filled with very warm and accommodating staff.

We have traveled in Italy for many years, and are serious about traditional cuisines. This restaurant is one of our favorites. Personal, knowledgeable service, a pleasant bustle when it's crowded (the usual),very well prepared bolognese dishes and local wines. Be sure to make a reservation. If you're looking for a great osteria experience, this place will provide it!

Visited this local busy Osteria and enjoyed lovely evening - you need a reservation as it's pretty popular. Waiters were extremely friendly offering tasters of the lasagne and desserts, local pasta options at very reasonable prices. Thanks
