“Fantastic”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

Situated in one of the most vibrant streets in Bologna (via dell Pratello), this simple osteria is a delight. You can sit inside, or as I preferred outside on simple wooden park tables and plank chairs to people watch. The wine list is divided by region and reasonably priced. The food is dependent upon season, freshness and availability. The menu is in Italian but the staff understand just enough to get by. It is so relaxing, delicious and the perfect way to while away a few hours over a bottle of red. The marscapone dessert is a must and worth the visit alone. The street vendors from Bangladesh are sweet and won't bother you if you're cool (and they are just trying to make a living). Enjoy

“Excellent pasta”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

A bit of a loud student hang out due to the cheap beer happy hour, but good food and great value. Try to get a table inside as the outside tables lack comfort and are constantly bothered by street vendors.

“Fresh Pasta, Delicious Crostini - Off the Beaten Path”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

We found this place based on a tip from a local. It is just a few meters down from a charming local bar that also seemed to be frequented just by locals. I ordered the ragu and the tagliatelle had spinach in it (i.e. it was green) and the sauce was just delicious. My wife ordered the pumpkin ravioli, which were also fresh and delicious. The menu of fresh pasta's were not listed - you just talk to the hostess after you get there - very Italian :). Also, try the crostini - the caramelized onions and artichoke we had on ours melted in the mouth. A great find and not very expensive!
