Nice place. Classic Italy with great food (no pizza) with tegular prices (10-14€). Nice service, too.

Sitting alone in this restaurant at 9.00pm had us worried that it was not a popular choice with locals, but it was full by 10.00pm, seems everyone was at one of the many local bars. Good food, limited choice but good value.

Freshly made tagliatella with Bolognese sauce. Yum!! House red wine tastes very different than those I had before, no tanning. Great food for a quick bite at an affordable price. Location is easy to find.

After hours of seeking a good place to have some Italian food, this place came up. The fresh pasta was amazing and with starter and glass of wine was just €12. Lovely!

Situated in one of the most vibrant streets in Bologna (via dell Pratello), this simple osteria is a delight. You can sit inside, or as I preferred outside on simple wooden park tables and plank chairs to people watch. The wine list is divided by...More
