I had the meat - which was steak with fresh sliced tomatoes. My wife had the fish, a whole Sea Bream, filleted and done in tinfoil with... More

Lovely place for a meal starter not needed as you get a little complimentary antipasti which is very nice. Food was very good and we were offered a complimentary liqueur at the end of our meal to finish things off.

After eating very well for several days we called in here one evening for a lighter meal. What a pleasant surprise. We had no reservation but were welcomed by a very pleasant waiter with excellent English. We shared a starter of bruschetta and he also brought up some bread and ham and cheese. We both then had a pasta course... More

We have been traveling in Italy for 3 weeks and have enjoyed a wide variety of Italian foods, depending on the area we were in. My lunch today stood out from others because my risotto with porcini mushrooms and my husband's pasta with sausage were more flavorful than many we have eaten. The red wine was good and they bring...

Small Cafe near our hotel.Poppe6in for a light dinner. Good service and surprisingly good food for what looks like a Cafe. Just the one lady in the kitchen doing all the cooking. He gave us some ham and cheese and we shared a mixed bruschetta and then had tagliatelle with prosciutto and zucchini and lasagna bolognese. Good quality well cooked... More

It was just around the corner from our Hotel, service was really friendly and welcoming and relaxing. The food is cooked to perfection with sauces that have real depth and flavour, a real... More

Went there twice for dinner while in Bologna and wished we had gone for a 3rd night, it was around the corner from our hotel (Touring hotel). We had our best meals in Italy in our 19 days tour of Italy. The pasta is freshly made when ordered and then cooked afterwards by the chef which you can actually see... More

On a nice street with a nice menu, good service, and pleasant staff. The food was terrific for a place for lunch. There were 3 menus: salad, primo (Pasta) or secondo (Meat). It was inexpensive, and included a beverage (wine or water or soda), plus coffee and dessert. If I remember what we had (Primo) came to about €9. Very... More
