We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the sober and stylish decoration. The food was nice and freshly prepared. We thought the quantities were a bit small - friendly service.

Honestly, the most delicious ragu and pasta I’ve ever had. Wonderful backstreet setting and perfect for a dinner with friends as two couples. We were all impressed with every course and I recommend it to all our friends who visit Bologna.

This place is literally in an alley, but don't be put off by that. It's just around the corner from the Basilica of San Petronio in a secluded spot. We had a magnificent dinner, including excellent local wines and outstanding service. It was so good...More
