It wasn't busy when we sat down to eat, but by the time we left they were waiting for tables. Although on a street, you didn't feel like you were on show. The food was OK. The cover charge was expensive and the tried to...More

Worst pizza in Bologna. You get pulled in by seemingly good prices and a smile, but it's a trap. They use the cheapest ingredients; no flavour whatsoever. And don't even think about ordering dessert. Tiramisu translates to "pull me to you" but when you order...More

The atmosphere was non-existent, the pizza was OK but nothing special, the service was forgetful (what about those salads we ordered? now what about forks to eat the salads with? etc), and the prices are pretty high. Wouldn't recommend it unless you're tired of hunting...More

We found this pizzeria on our last night in Bologna - unfortunately for us, or we would definitely have eaten here again. The staff were very friendly and the food was great (the seafood pasta was delicious!). Also we found it better value for money...More
