This restaurant is not in all the guide books. Just as well as it is a hidden gem. This is Michelin quality cooking with local ingredients. The place was fully booked on a Friday night by locals. The food is refined and imaginative. The tortellini...More

I can assure this is the best restaurant in Bologna if you are looking for something special and delightful. Read carefully the menu and you'll find something for you both fish or meat. Don't forget to ask for dessert.

We were in a group of four. Our friends were blown away by their food: we were less fortunate. The pasta starters were stunning. My stuffed artichokes were dull, and a terrine would have bounced if dropped owing to the amount of gelatine. For mains,...More

Visited during a long weekend with my girlfriend and had a lovely dinner. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Very welcoming. Wide range on the menu. Both courses were very well presented, very tasteful and well priced. Well worth a visit.
