We visited bologna for a day trip and as we had heard a lot about its gastronomic offers we made a reservation in advance to have lunch here. The place looks as if it came out of an old Italian movie, small and over decorated....More

This restaurant has a 'spoken' menu, very tasty food, and an extremely entertaining host who goes out of way to make everyone feel special.

Drogheria la Rossa is brilliant. The guy who owns it walks around giving out wine and humour while the food itself is just simple, wholesome, traditional staples of Bologna cuisine, done brilliantly. Everyone should get to eat this food.

We made our reservation by email and called to confirm. Person answering the phone spoke English. A very popular spot with a gregarious owner who stops by all of the tables to share a few words, worth visiting.
