The place is lovely ! A mix of traditional and fancy / modern . Very cosy, people very gentle and kind. The house wine was delicious. As a 'welcome' they served a pice of the parmegiano regiano: the famous cheese of the region. For my husband, that its not vegetarian, they served mortadela with yogurt. There are vegetarian options, very... More

There were a number of new restaurants we planned to visit, on this return trip to Bologna but when you have a restaurant as good as Vicolo Colombina - a two minute stroll from your hotel - it’s hard to resist returning. Reading my review of 2013, should have warned me about the need to book - but it didn’t.... More

One of our best meals in Italy. Simple food, done as close to perfection as you can get. Great wines. Super-friendly staff.

What a great, quaint restaurant down a small alleyway. Fabulous food presented in unique ways. The Sangiovese wine was the best we've tasted! Staff was knowledgeable and understood our broken Italian ... plus, spoke very good English. We would definitely go back.

First the positives. The location is delightful - in the heart of the old city in a little alley, almost on its own, Vicolo Colombino takes up two shop fronts. The restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the staff present a professional and attentive manner. The food was mostly excellent. A plate of mixed locally sourced salame, prosciutto...

Amazing food. Perfect combination of ingredients. Very high standard. I love to go out for lunch or dinner and this place nailed all my expectations. Starters, main course and even desserts are over perfection. Sublime. Without doubt this restaurant deserve to be on top

Two years ago I visited this place and I was really enthusiastic about it. Fast forward two years, I want to write a review and simply copy my previous one, which says a lot about this place, not a lot of restaurants have this consistency: "Traditional food presented in a contemporary way with a gourmet touch. Two guys who know... More
