We stopped here with our teenage kids after arriving to the train station. It is a few blocks from the train station and a short easy walk. The place is easy to find. The day we visited, two ladies were working the restaurant. They were super nice and willing to please. The place has fresh pasta that you can see... More

We had lunch there on our arrival at Bologna. It's mainly a grocery where you can buy fresh hand-made pasta and similar, but I think they had a really good idea giving chance to sit and eat there instead of just buying and cooking at home. They have a few interesting sauces you can choose with your dish. There are... More

This review is for the pasta class and I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed it! I took two four-hour sessions (so eight hours total) but you can tailor the class to your availability and needs. They taught me how to knead pasta dough by hand and roll it out using a long rolling pin. Then we worked the... More

The dishes are tasy and the Pasta is great! Nevertheless, the amount of Pasta for 7,50 € is rather small, and the... More

Me and my partner went for the pasta making lesson at €35 each. It lasted 2 hours; we learned so much, had a great time and got loads of great pasta to take away with us! Our teacher was brilliant and her English was perfect. Incredible value for money and a great experience. Highly recommended.

Firstly, visit AFTER noon as they were busy the whole morning hand making pasta and ingredients. Despite the inconvenience, this little place packs a big punch! Excellent pasta and sauces with many locals frequenting here. Try to grab the limited number of tables as there are Parmesan cheese available for sprinkling! If not, they package their pasta very well for... More

This is a more like a takeaway place. Mostly they sell uncooked fresh pasta but they can also make small portions based on a daily menu. You might think that it is a bit expensive for takeaway but you need to try the food and see how fresh pasta is made. It is a time consuming job and hence expensive.... More
