This was our first lunch pitstop. First taste of tagliatelle ragu and it was amazing! The waiter was outstanding! Given the location the price was also very good. Highly recommended for lunch and dinner.

It was this or the famous Venchi ice cream shop. We had overdone it at the latter in Florence way to much and wanted to try something new. La Torinese was quite good. Especially enjoyed the mascarpone with chocolate cake and the fresh cherry flavors.

On my first visit to Bologna, I was lucky enough to get a table here for lunch at a very busy time. I remembered how tasty the food was and so with one in night Bologna, this was where I chose to eat. I was given attentive and quick service. Along with bread they also give you cubed mortadella to try. For starters I had Polenta fritta, which was very tasty. This I followed up with a primo of Tagliatelle al ragu and for secondo, Polpette (meatballs) with zucchini alla Bologne. I squeezed in a Tiramisu for dessert. A very enjoyable and filling meal.

Good coffee and friendly staff, with tables and chairs were what we liked most.

They apparently have great gelato, sandwiches, pastries, and fresh orange juice too!
