The street was alive with local color and very present vibe so the plan was to eat where the locals eat. There was an eatery recommended by a proxy Italian but it was closed for renovations. After sussing out the blocks, we settle with this one as it had a buffet set up as well as an a la carte... More

I went there with my boyfriend for dinner. The food was OK, not super exciting or tasty, pretty basic, so was the service, we had to wait for quite some time and both waiters were kind of unfriendly with us. The dessert Torta di Maria was really good, I would recommend going there for that but otherwise I think there... More

I walked into this restaurant about 8:00pm on a Friday night and was asked if I wanted an apertivo. Not really knowing what that was, I said yes, and I'm glad I did. I got a glass of the house white and an initial plate piled high with arancini-like objects, pieces of thick pizza of various kinds, grilled vegetables, and... More

We randomly stumbled across this place and were very glad we did! The waiter spoke good English and helped us through the menu, which was mostly made up of crostini, pasta and salad dishes. We had a mixed crostini starter which was huge and very tasty! Lots of different flavours of cheese with toppings on cut into small bitesize pieces... More

I went here with a friend of mine and we both only had dessert, but it was so delicious! Especially the Torta di Maria is to die for.

This place is great for a long conversation with friends and a good change of pace from pasta/secondi dishes that you find all over Bologna. Their specialty is making various types of crostini and bruschetta, and they have interesting salads as well. Plenty of wine choices too: as always you can't go wrong with the house wine.

Classical Italian osteria. Simple but yet delicious food! Everyday has a different dish of the day. The ravioli that we ate were excellent! The same were the different kind of bruschette! Service was good and the environment is vivid due to the students and young people that visit the place. Portions and prices were both good.
