Four British travellers with a booking for New Year's Eve. Risky, but from stepping through the door at 8.30 to leaving at 1.30 we ate and drank well in cramped but great surroundings down in the cellar. All the staff and the owner could not...More

I booked this restaurant for a dinner on 30 Dec in advance and became a bit nervous when I checked back on the reviews here. Needless to say, nothing to be nervous about. The restaurant only plans for 1 sitting per night, starting at 830pm,...More

Based on the many positive TripAdvisor reviews we chose this restaurant for our first meal in Bologna and we were sorry that we did. It is so far removed from the fabulous food elsewhere and you are sucked in with the first glass of wine...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.
