The nice crew welcomes you in this cosy place with a long tradition! many VIP pictures on the wall descending the stairs to the dining room as a testimonial of their know how. Excellent typical Bologna recipes!

Excellent busy restaurant. Food was fantastic. This is a very popular restaurant that has fantastic specials. The grilled porcini mushrooms were fabulous. So good we ordered a second plate. The homemade pasta were really nice. We had fish for our entre which was very fresh.
