We went there for dinner. A reservation is strongly recommended because many people that came during the evening did not get a table. The restaurant is nicely located and you can sit outside. The food is nothing special. I had the tagliatelle al ragu as...More

This was our first taste of bologna and we would recommend this. Tagliatelle bolgnese was very good, as was the filled pasta, lamb, meatballs and rabbit. Pretty good vegetarian menu choices, but they wouldn't add courgette to a pasta dish. Reasonably priced. We paid around...More

Nothing too creative here, but honest traditional bolognese fare well-prepared fairly priced. Service is excellent when they're not overwhelmed. Cotoletta bolognese was a tender veal cutlet lightly floured topped with prosciutto and cheese and sautéed in butter and lemon. A little tangy and delicious.

Delightful little place. Had the Tortellini with herbs to start and escalope cordon to follow. All cooked perfectly. Only here 5 hours so far but love the town. Intimate, historic at every turn and not overrun by tourists.
