On our last night in Bologna we tried this restaurant. Quite a big menu, so choosing your meal isn't that easy. In the end I had some spaghetti with shrimps and basil and my boyfriend spaghetti alla puttanesca. My pasta was nice, the shrimp were very tasty and well prepared. The spaghetti alla puttanesca was something different, as we never... More

We had some pizza and it was the worst we had for a long time. Both were watery, the dough therefore soggy and the diavolo pizza had way too much grease drops swimming on top. The buffalo mozzarella we had as a starter was okay by itself, but the dried herbs they put on top were some cheap shelf products.... More

This restaurant was close to our apartment so it was a no brainer to go there for our first evening meal. It had a super atmosphere, filled with locals and possibly the odd tourist. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, the tagliatelle with ragu was delicious, and we so enjoyed the experience we returned for our final evening meal.

We visited the La Brace restaurant on the evening of 12th February; it is slightly away from the centre but is only three minutes’ walk from the Asinelli tower, along the Via San Vitale, on the corner of Vicolo Brogilo. It is bright and modern and decorated with pictures of stars from screen and music and football shirts on the... More

Quality of food was amazing. Steak was cooked to perfection. Staff very friendly and helpful with choices. Most people around were eating pizza... More

Very good pizza, average swordfish carpaccio , awful salad . A bit annoying waiting staff, you don't feel very welcomed ,plus they charge automatically 2,5 euros per person , which for a restaurant like that , is a lot . Conclusion, go there for the pizza

I came upon this restaurant whilst wandering around the city and ended up returning the following day! It's clearly a popular place with both locals and tourists alike, and quickly filled up at lunchtimes. As for the food, it was very tasty and portion sizes very generous. I tried pizza and pasta and enjoyed both very much. Staff were friendly... More

This was a recommended restaurant we decided to try. It was a wet, rainy day, so we decided to order pizza. It was delicious. The wait staff is particularly good and friendly. The restaurant charges a coperto of €2.50 per person which is the highest we've encountered so far.

The restaurant is in the center of Bologna, not far away from the two towers, so even if there's not a great amount of parking places close to it, it's really easy to get to. The restaurant is cosy, it's ceiling is carpeted with football t-shirts, signed by their original owners. It's perfect for a quick lunch before going back to work, if you don't have much time, but also for birthday, graduation parties or for company meetings. Moreover it's possible to take away almost every dish in the menu from pasta, to meat, to fish and obviously, pizza. Reservations are always welcomed. The pizza is baked in firewood oven and all the courses are prepared at the time or, in the case of pasta al forno lie Lasagne, in the morning. It has also a large choice of desserts, from tiramisu, to cakes, to sorbetto, to fruit. In short, there's something for everyone!
