Stopped for lunch without a reservation which was not a problem. Enjoyed a well presented and prepared lunch. The star was a black rice amuse bouche which was incredibly unusual and delicious - we've never had a dish remotely like it and it was, well, wonderful. Certainly worth a try if you are in the area.

As the name suggested, this restaurant serve the traditional styled food of Bologna. They do a capable job, but not the best I have had. There is no visible sign of the restaurant except the name in etched in the glass, since is is at the first floor of the hotel, it was hard for us to find it even though we were using google map and it is on a major street.

We were staying in the hotel next door and so took the chance to eat here. So glad we did. All four of us had a very nice meal. Staff were knowledgeable and attentive and the wine was very nice too. Overall a great evening in beautiful Bologna.

Arrived late in Bologna and hotel called restaurant to see if they would accommodate us. Fortunately there were able to host us for a late dinner. Restaurant is pretty and open. Tables not close to each other. Very friendly staff helped us select dishes. Everything tasted delicious and staff did not rush us despite the late hour. Recommend.

We had lunch at the eatery and chose the 30 Euro pp menu, which was a tasting experience of Bologna. Staring with polenta, a meat and cheese platter, tortellini in chicken broth followed by meat with ham and cheese. The portions were large .
You can get local wines by the glass. The staff were friendly and professional.
