I always go to Trattroia Gianni when in Bologna. The pasta is always great. I went this past Dec 21 and had the gnocchi di zucca with butter/sage sauce. Probably the best gnocchi I have ever had and would love to have the recipe.

We discovered Trattoria Gianni by complete fluke after wandering around Bologna, looking for somewhere that was not booked up, or a tourist trap. Was really lucky to get a table and we ended up having the best meals of our trip there. The food was incredible (I ordered the Lamb Ragu for first plate & Cotoletta for second and my... More

There are, however, problems that will irritatate you, and i hope that the owners read this and get it, as they are super sweet and deserve to succeed, but they are young, and just don't get it. Everthing about the... More

We got in for lunch on Friday and this proved a very good move. Busy but well organised and smooth running service...plenty of help with menu explanations and... More

We arrived at the restaurant starving , around 2 in the afternoon . It is a simple , a little bit claustrophobic traditional Italian restaurant . We ordered a mixed salad and two different kinds of pasta . The food was decent , of good taste and ingredients. There was the difficulty of communicating, as they don 't really speak... More
