Description: The Rovescio was born out of paradox which became our philosophy: we do not source our produce based on the menu, but instead we build the menu around what produce is available at each time of the year, based on the offerings of our small-scale, local producers.

for a vegetarian like me this small and cozy restaurant is a serious blessing, all the more in a city where the cuisine is very meat based. Il Rovescio's philosophy being to offer only seasonal produce from the area - they take the "zero mileage" concept very seriously - vegetable based dishes take the lion's share on the regular menu (which is, of course, constantly refreshed). as the unusual variety of options got me a little confused - as a vegetarian I seldom have loads of suitable choices in most restaurants - I was particularly happy that they have sample dishes also on offer. the wine selection could be less exciting if you are not so much into biodinamic varieties, but the white we have been suggested was pretty impressive. definitely a first choice if you are in Bologna and are in for something different from traditional tortellini. a special mention goes out to the bread!

We had the menu de gustatione: good little bites of many types of foods. We orderd both the vegetarian and the carne menu. The vegetarian menu was quite varied and good.

Seriously good bio food, dangerously , humourous host, amazing atmosphere. I'm afraid the other Bolognese restaurants won't see much of me the coming week.
