It's a little bit up in the hills but it's worth the trip. The food is excellent and comes in generous portions. When we asked what a table next to us was eating they just smiled and brought us a plate... which didn't end up on the bill. Great service and we'll definitely be back.

A cosy place were they serve real Bolognese food. I was there in the tartufo season and had a really great tartufo lunch. My Italian friends come here all the time!

we've been here with some colleagues and had a wonderful dinner. The food was tasty, in particular tagliatelle with ham! Excellent!! Nice to go if you don't pretend a fashion place!

I stopped by chance, but I went very well. Trattoria old-fashioned, average service, plenty of seating, traditional food, large portions, average-low price (three courses, one dessert, two coffees, water and 1/4 of wine for less than € 50). Nice stop for a ride on the hills of Bologna.

Whenever I pass near Bologna I try to stop and eat here. Big portions, great food, good price. Service is good, place is nice and you can even go for a small walk in the country after lunch. I love the 'crescentine' with salumi and the pate' di lardo (lard pate').

The Vecchia Roma is the typical "Crescentine" restaurant (kind of "gnocco fritto", a local pan fried focaccia, served with ham, cheese, vegetables in oil/vinegar, and other side dishes): a simple trattoria, the service is friendly but a bit rough, the choice of dishes is very typical, oriented to the traditional local choice of pasta and grilled meat, with the "Crescentine"...
