We were lucky to get in this restaurant as the hotel recommended it and made reservations for us. If they have it on their menu, please try their sformatino and tortellini in brodo. The service is spotty, but that is because the Italians tend to all eat after 8 at the same time, and the restaurant has only one seating.

We really enjoyed our dinner in this hidden behind the cathedral quiet restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was good. They are very patient with tourists who have no idea about local wine and have made an excellent recommendation. We had a classic plate of local meats, followed by tortellini in brodo and parmigiana di melanzane. Melanzane arrived... More

Many dishes were delicious. The chef creates works of art. The starters and pasta are sublime. If you go to this restaurant for the wonderful food, you will not be disappointed. The desserts are okay. The interior of the restaurant is bland, however, and our server had a lot of attitude. We might go back for the quality of the... More

Please don't get me wrong, it's probably really lovely but we felt that the menu was limited and not want we wanted to eat at that time so we decided to leave.

In a tiny side street next to the cathedral - blink and you'll miss it. But it's worth finding for an excellent meal, good service, and a reasonably-priced wine list. The rabbit in particular was quite delicious!

Little hidden away restaurant opens for lunch at 12h30. Crisp clean modern interior and super friendly young service staff. Knowledgeable in English and proud on their profession. Kitchen is more Eataly than Italy And what I am saying is, good Italian ingredients, cooked /prepared respectfully. Served up tempo. Good value for money. Walking distance from historical Bologna. (Poor 3G reception... More

Specializing in locally-sourced ingredients, this minimalist-chic place was all white walls, white tablecloths, servers in black slacks and white shirts. The techno-bop music that was playing when we arrived didn’t quite go with the rest of the ambiance. Eventually, someone changed it to light pop. Cool jazz would have been more appropriate. I ordered the pork ribs, which were even... More

We were looking for a contemporary Bolognese restaurant and this was recommended by our hotel. However, it did not quite come up to recommendations. The staff are young and, in some cases, enthusiastic but not very organised (we were served by four different people). Despite telling them we were in no hurry, our starter arrived before we had finished our... More

Our first meal in Bologna at Vicolo Colombina was refreshingly excellent after a series of average meals in Venice. The menu offered some unique twists on old favourites. The guinea fowl lasagne is superb! Service was friendly. The bill of 100 Euro for 3 courses for 3 people plus wine was amazingly cheap. Highly recommend.
