We loved every dish we were served especially the tortellini in brodo and the tagliere misto (custom selection of cured meats). The staff is friendly and helpful. We appreciated their suggestions. For a full three course meal with a bottle of wine it cost about...More

Our Air BnB host tipped us about this restaurant, so at 7pm on our way home from exploring we stopped in to see if we could make a reservation at 8. When we walked in, every table was already reserved so we didn’t like our...More

A delightful appearance spoiled by overcharging and up-selling. All the danger signs were there: no written wine list, meals with verbal extras and locals ordering the same meals but receiving far better offerings. For example, being persuaded to have a shared cold cut appetiser but...More

Lovely Osteria on a quiet street in central Bologna. Our entire experience was wonderful. We asked for and appreciated suggestions for cured meats, cheeses and lambrusco. All top quality. The pasta dishes were interesting and outstanding as well. We look forward to returning again.

Brilliant authentic Italian. Want Bolognese in Bologna? Yep, this is the place. Ended up on of my favourite meals while in Italy. Really good local produce (cheese, meats, etc) accompanied with really decent local wine. Decently priced also.

Absolutely ordinary place with ordinary food claimed to be selected by the owners. Poor menu set, simple home made style preparation. Cold cuts served on paper. Overpriced totally. Attitude of the staff is disgusting: first served local, the rest later. Worst house wine ever tasted...More

Absolutely the best restaurant in town: local organic wines, local Amaro, best sourced cold cuts, hand made desserts (by the Chef's wife) and bread sticks, amazing onion pasta, outstanding tortellini in genuine brodo, a must visit in town. One of the best restaurants I have...More

Unique place with really tasteful food and kind staff with family-like approach to all guests. Every thing we have tried turned out to be amazingly good and we just kept on ordering...highly recommend Osteria Bottega to all food connoisseurs traveling to Bologna.

We had dinner here recently but I honestly can't remember what we ate it was just not memorable in any way. I found all of the staff rather po-faced and pretentious, I don't really like restaurants where the customer seems to be an inconvenience

Sorry we have only visited in may and October. Quite a lot of the restaurants do close in August though, given the heat the locals head for the beaches.

Hello, I phoned them - they don't have a booking system online. How about your Italian? However, sometimes you may find in such places at least one person who speaks English. Please keep in mind that they are not used to it... More
