Situated down a dark street off the main thoroughfare it didn’t look promising but when we got in the experience was brilliant from start to finish. Wonderful Italian seafood cooked to perfection with excellent friendly service and a bill that was excellent value. Perfect thank...youMore

We had lunch at this small, friendly restaurant. The seafood pasta first course and salted cod main at lunch were delicious and at a reasonable price. 44€ for two (sharing the starter) with wine, water and bread included. After lunch the chef was making his...own pasta outside the kitchen. Highly recommended.More

This restaurant was amazing. Wine is really reasonably priced and the food was out of this world. Every dish felt like a present for my taste buds. I'm still thinking about the prawn starter... Can't wait to return next time I'm in Bologna.

The location is a bit off the beaten track, and a bit ‘edgy’, but it is worth making the trip. Service was great, very friendly and the owner took the time to explain the menu to us, and recommend some wines. We had roast octopus,...followed by spaghetti with sea urchin, tomato and lemon rind (divine) and the calamari with artichoke purée. Great value, including the wines. The place was packed by 9pm, so reservations are essential. Recommended.More

I come to this restaurant whenever I can because I love the food. It’s mainly fish and vegetables. It’s not cheap though. You might end up paying 25 euros for a plate of past and a glass of wine

The best thing here is the food: fresh fish cooked at very high level. Absolutely tasty, fresh and what else?! To try! If I have to try something to improve is the atmosphere, maybe a bit cold...Right price/quality ratio.

I come here whenever I can. I like the food very much and any meal here is never disappointing. This time I had tuna and it was excellent. They also do vegetables and pasta dishes very well. It is located in the heart of the...university area, with all the pros and cons of this part of the city.More

Small place in a side street, but popular. Maltagliati soup with shrimp and seafood garganelli excellent. The involtino di pesce spada was OK but a bit bready. Diners here all looked happy with what they had.

Great dinner tonight and this very nice, small restaurant. We had a clams/mussels & ravioli with burrata 1st, and we both had tuna...a yellow tail...and a 'white" Mediterranean tuna for a 2nd course. Both quite good. The wine list was very reasonably priced and our...bottle was terrific (Pecorino...sort of a dry Gewurtz)More

We chose this place for our last night in Bologna and the food was excellent. high quality fish and seafood which was very tasty, fresh and nicely presented. A nice break from all the ham, pasta, meet and cheese. Satisfying and light and not overly...pricey. My only complaint was that the staff was a bit too informal and stiff but maybe they were uncomfortable speaking English..the service was at least correct and efficient. Would go back if I ever get a chance.More
