I went here the first time I went to Bologna and I went back this weekend - so I made a trip back to this restaurant! Everything I've tried here is great - I recommend the caprese and any of their tortellini !

Even being an Italian, not a bolognese restaurant, I eat there the best torteloni of ever, with cheese sauce and truffles. Honest in the food and price. Very courtesy with us. Always be back.

Really good quality food, nice atmosphere even if the room was a little bright. The bill was a nice surprise as was the free limoncello. If back in Bologna will return.
