Came across this restaurant in Bologna by chance. The seating area outside was full and we agreed to wait, we sat nearby on a couple of stools and were treated to a glass of prosecco each on the house! How charming was that. Our waiter...More

A must do in Bologna for me was tasting local lasagna. We sat at a table outside beneath a crescent moon and loved the lasagna!

We stopped for lunch and had a delicious pasta meal at a very reasonable price. Service was a bit slow but it was very busy with only two people serving.

We were visiting the centre of Bologna and looked for a "light lunch" (which for us is almost an oxymoron ...), and out of street-wanderer-instinct we chose this "bar". The place has an informal atmosphere, background chatter did not get in the way of our...More

After a fairly big lunch, my wife and I just wanted a plate of mixed meats and cheese in the evening. So guided by a couple of reviews, decided on Il Calice. Our mixed cheese and salami plate with “hot-bread” was OK but nothing more....More
