Ristorante Diana - Bologna

Ristorante Diana

Ristorante Diana: Authentic Local Cuisine

Conserving old world feel and decoration, Ristorante Diana has been an establishment in Bologna since the 1920s. It serves authentic emiliana cuisine, including tortelli, tortellini, lasagne and fritti misti al bolognese. With the white table cloth and high end service comes a slightly higher price than other restaurants in town, but nothing exorbitant. Diana is conveniently located in the centre of town on the wide thoroughfare, Via dell'Indipendenza.

[Note: Ristorante Diana is closed on Mondays.]

Ristorante Rodrigo - Bologna

Ristorante Rodrigo

Ristorante Rodrigo: One of the "musts" in Bologna

Do not be fooled by the picture of a wide-eyed "Rodrigo" outside, Ristorante Rodrigo is one of the "musts" in Bologna. It serves excellent and authentic bolognese dishes. The dining room has a very old-world feel to it with dusty old bottles of wine and books - quite atmospheric. Although Rodrigo is on the expensive side for Bologna, where restaurants are generally inexpensive, there will be no regrets when you walk out of the restaurant!

Address: Via della Zecca, 2

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Just west of Piazza Maggiore. Closed on Sundays.

Cremeria Sette Chiese - Bologna

Cremeria Sette Chiese

Cremeria Sette Chiese: Gelati

Named after the seven churches of the Complex of Santo Stefano, this "Cremeria" serves delicious artisanal Italian gelati of all flavours. It is located on Via Santo Stefano, near the religious complex. I stumbled across it one evening while walking back from dinner and indulged on a delicious gelato. No seating is available, so it is mainly a takeway place.

Clavature Clive T.: Ristorante & Wine Bar

Located in a historic building, Palazzo Pepoli, in the heart of the old city, Cavature Clive T. is both a wine bar and a restaurant. On its small menu are simple but deliciously prepared specialties of Bologna, including tasty tortelloni, accompanied by local wines. The restaurant hosts local events on occasion, which has made it quite popular in Bologna. When the weather is clement, outdoor seating day or night is hard to resist.

Marco Fadiga Bistrot: Dinner in Bologna

Located in the southern section of the old city, Marco Fadiga Bistrot is a casual but tasty restaurant. The small establishment carries the name of a young chef who has become famous for his more innovative cuisine combining bolognese traditions with new ideas. The casual dining room is split in two, while the menu is written on a chalkboard. A reservation is recommended.
