Expect to wait for a table here. We got here at 1.30 pm and had a 15-minute wait. Customers are locals as well as tourists - always a good sign. Genuine, traditional Bolognese cooking with no frills. My impression is that they take pride in their food, and appreciate it when you appreciate it! The service can be brusque as they're so busy, but when we showed an interest in the menu items, asked questions and thanked them, they were appreciative. We even had a tiny discount off the final bill. We had tagliatelle al ragu (of course) which was pretty good, and a stinco (pork shank). Don't come here expecting fancy food and service, this is homestyle cooking.

Great service from the friendly staff, followed by fantastic food and great wine.
The staff from our hotel recommended this place and we are so glad she did. We asked to try some traditional meals of bologna and they delivered!

Simply terrible! Give the place a miss. The Ragu was horrendous, it was not only dry and flavorless but finding some actual Ragu in the tagliatelle was like searching for water in a desert. We were also charged a €2 surcharge per person for the pleasure of eating here. We were provided with some complimentary bread that was as hard as rock, and when finishing my Ragu and using some olive oil and balsamic vinegar to mop up this 10 day old bread, the waitress came over and just took my plate despite my protests.

Had a great tortelloni burro e salvia and eggplant parmesan here. House wine was decent. Ambience is old-school, family-style trattoria. Prices are average, though the daily menu offers good value.

My second visit to this restaurant that lives up to the word "Trattoria"
Simple, tasty. generous and traditional Bolognese food.
The service is sharp but relaxed with a real feeling of eating at a family home.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough, it was everything I expected a restaurant in Bologna to be.
