There's no way this restaurant deserves a Michelin star. Had dinner last night with my husband and in-laws and everything was soaked in olive oil - from my tomato/avocado salad to our risotto dishes to the spaghetti with clam sauce (not a sauce - just...More

The classical restaurant serves traditional local dishes and wide selection of wines in the heart of Bologna. It has a nice terrace area in the front of the restaurant overlooking small square.Service is professional and smooth.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as somewhere we could experience traditional Bolognese fare. It was perfectly acceptable but uninspiring in our opinion. The Mortadella was just a large chunk on the plate. The pasta was very good but overall we felt it was average

We ate at this lovely restaurant twice during our stay in Bologna. Lunch outdoors and dinner several days later inside. Ambiance and service were great and the food was fantastic. A wonderful place to go for traditional Bolognese cuisine in a pretty square.
