The "Osteria delle Donzelle" is very close to the city center, and you reach it in few minutes walk from San Petronio or Piazza Maggiore. This is already a good point, making the place suitable for tourists busy in vising the beautiful Bologna. The restaurant is accessible through a descending stair, it is not big but nice, warm and, all... More

This is a really really nice restaurant with very good food, reasonably priced with excellent service from a young and helpful staff. My main dish of slow cooked pork shank was quite delicious!

Reasonable prices with delicious food. Loved the atmosphere, charming and beautiful basement restaurant with nice energy. Young crowd with great lighting (so many Italian restaurants are too bright) Would go back again.

My wife and I had reservations for 8pm on a Saturday. We arrived & were seated promptly. The menu was promising, the music good (Django Reinhardt?) and we ordered the "Tourist Menu", which had standard choices - meat and cheese plate antipasto, 3 pasta choices for the primi, 3 meat choices for secondi, and water & coffee, all included for...

Our hotel had booked a restaurant for us - we thought we had arrived at the correct address, but found afterwards we were at the wrong place! However a table for four was found for us and we had a really good meal. Starters were very generous in portion size and mains were hot and delicious. Drinks were moderately priced.... More

We had a sharing plate of cold cuts and cheese - good although there wasn't a lot of cheese. But the lasagne was just fair.

Food is descent. Not exceptional, but to be honest I did not find exceptional food in Bologna. The wine catalogue is super. We tried Red Wine "Fratta Minore: Sangiovese Superiore" which was absolutely fantastic. Really tasteful. People are very polite and helpful, lots of Italians in the place, indicative of the fact that it is NOT a touristic trap. I... More

It was the best place we found during our stay in Bologna. In the rest of the restaurants the Staff was rude and the prices high. Here - quite the opposite.

We were having trouble finding lunch spot near Center, and friend we made in Italy, suggest Donzelle. It was a little out of the way and hard to find, but everything our party ordered was very good. Loved the atmosphere of the cellar dining room. Only drawback was that even though it often takes a while to get the check... More

We thought the meat and cheese platter was amazing value for money and the wine was included in the price too. As we managed to only eat about half the waiter suggested a doggy bag. We returned for a second meal and tried the lasagne. The local bolognaise sauce is completely different to what we have in the UK -... More
