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 dish of fresh pea and asparagus summed up spring.
The meat dish of veal belly with carrot liquorice puree and chicory was light and flavourful.
We had an excellent bottle of vintage Sangiovese wine from Emilia.
This place sums up what good dining is all about.

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.

This is a very unassuming restaurant not in the main restaurant area but well worth the visit. It would be easy to walk past and not really notice it but you'll be in for a treat if you go in. Not fancy decor but the waiters, who spoke little English, could not have been more helpful with our food and wine choice. Very good selection of dishes and cooked with a lot of love and attention. I recommend the grilled squid appetizer and the rolled goat main course.

Unsure of what to order, our group of 8 all went for the tasting menu. Fabulous dishes turned up including, the renowned (by Rick Stein), onion and cheese Tortellini in mushroom brode. Would highly recommend this beautiful restaurant. The food is authentic Italian and was delicious!

Great meal and happy to go " off menu" when I asked for a particular dish that they did and which had been recommended.
