Reviewed 11 November 2018

We have been here now the 4th time (our two trips to Bologna) and it is a solid place that will not disappoint. The service is excellent and so is the food. It's consistent, classy, simple and just really good. We will be back every time we visit. This is a place that makes us want to come back over and over again. The staple to try - carciofi fritti or al forno or grigliati. Lasagna is excellent, so are tortellini or tagliatelle...

Delicious dinner and lunch at Nello. The zucchini flowers were absolutely fantastic - the batter supremely light and crunchy. Also to die for was the pumpkin tortellini which I had with butter and sage and my husband had with tomato sauce. Our young waiter was very friendly and helpful but all the other waiters strode around with an air of arrogance and didn't smile once. Full of locals which is always testament to the cooking.

Ate here on our first night in Bologna on the recommendation of our hotel . Excellent friendly service and delicious food . We enjoyed it so much went back a second time during our stay. First time we sat outside which we thought was really nice. On our second visit we were inside and downstairs. If anything we preferred that to sitting outside as you get a really authentic atmosphere. It was very busy with a lot of locals , always a good sign. Despite there being a large table being served service never dipped and our excellent waiter remained attentive . Highly recommend

We visted this restaurant after a recommendation from a local we were chatting to earlier in the day. The restaurant was fully booked when we arrived but Stefano found us a table for an hour later. Nothing was too much trouble for him and He recommended some amazing food and wine, even preparing food that was not on the menu he thought we might like to try.
We returned for a second meal on our last night, and received the same high quality food, wine and service. This restaurant made our holiday, thank you

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. So much so we had dinner one night and returned for lunch the next day. You need to book as it is popular. I had the liver which was devine and my husband had the lasagne which he said was very good. Lovely attentive waiters and good food, we will visit again!
