Description: L'Antica Trattoria "La Grotta" was founded in 1918 by Adelmo Negri, not far from a cave dug into the tuff. Here generations of gourmets have spent happy hours for lunch or dinnerbased on authentic traditional dishes. "Tradition" is the buzzword that after Adelmo, has been handed down from generationgeneration through Aristide until Bruna and children Andrea and Maria Cristina ropes. Andrea is the chef that today thanks to the "secrets" sent by her grandmother Ada serves traditional cuisine, skilfully reinterpreted that follows the seasons, offering the full range of specialties from Bologna and some now rare dishes of the hill.

“Buon compleanno”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

I just gave lustre to my 57th birthday by having lunch with my wife & kids in La Grotta. It was perfect. In the past I have taken many friends here, a sure hit! Nice family running the restaurant, the cuisine offers a sophisticated version of traditional bolognese food, prices remain friendly.
In summertime the terrace offers a splendid panorama. Every now and then elderly ladies will be seen preparing the tortellini in the dining room.
