The pizza was very good! And for its price, you take a substantial quantity. I went during the summer and sat outside, with a cold beer. Good times!

After walking around Bologna it was nice to sit outside and have a drink and snack. The kids shared the tiramisu and it was delicious! Great service - and don't forget to ask for one of their speciality marshmallows!

Stopped at the outside bar at Via Zamboni 12, great location. Firstly waiter with glasses and a beard scammed us with our change - we didn't get any. Then noticed another waiter 'recycling' uneaten crisps to another table. Won't be going there again.
