Right off the central square in Bologna. My wife and I visited because we had heard the restaurant was awarded a Michelin Plate. The food was excellent, traditional local flavors with some nice updates. Each course was delicious, no bad dishes here, at least none that we had. I would highly recommend the Lamb. The staff were extremely attentive, very... More

This was an outstanding upmarket trattoria located in an alley near the Piazza Maggiore. The decor is modern and smart, and the service was professional. The tortellini in brodo was the best we had in Bologna, and the suckling pig fillet in puff pastry with apple was amazing. Definitely recommended and reservations well in advance are essential.

Exceptional food and service. Tucked away in a street in the old part of Bologna. Throughly enjoyed the anti pasti which was great to share. Great selection of meat and fish dishes for main course. I can highly recommend the veal coletta.

Fabulous night out! Effortless service with a smile and a wonderful dinner at very reasonable prices. We chose a delicious local white wine from a great value wine list and I had a glass of delicious red wine with my meat course. We had a great amuse bouch, starter, first and second plate and then shared a dessert with ample... More

We've been in Bologna for 4 nights and this was our favourite restaurant of the 3 dinners so far, and thoroughly recommend it. Yes it's brightly lit, which although common in Italy does somewhat spoil the romance and atmosphere of an evening out, but once over that we could barely fault our experience. The food was a definite 10 out... More

Elegant interior and pleasant service. The pasta course was A+, as was the veal cutlet entree. The fish entree was terrible. The fish did not taste fresh. The wine they recommended was also not very good. Maybe a B. Nice grappa, though.

This is an excellent restaurant if you want to eat some very good italian food, cooked in Bologna, a city renowed for the good food connoisseurs.

Dreadful service, food no better. Would not go again if they paid me to do so. Restaurants in Bologna do try to be good. This one did not care.

This was our third visit to Trattoria Battibecco over the past 18 months or so. This time to Bologna was a short shopping trip. Like our previous meals this one was superb. A very nice selection off of both meat and seafood menus. Excellent wines offered. All for a very good price and value. Impeccable service. We will always visit... More

This restaurant disappointed us because it was our last night, and the very best food that we had in Bologna over five days and ten meals. Several dishes were the very best of kind that I have ever had; the best salad ever, the best fried calamari ever. Anywhere in the world. The pastas were great. We shared an entree... More
