Small and elegant restaurant in the heart of Bologna

This is a small and very nice restaurant in the heart of Bologna, just a stones throw from Piazza Maggiore.

We each start with what we think will be pears and gorgonzola, but turns out to be a small composed salad containing the pears and gorgonzola and drizzled with a little honey. It was a delicious and an unusual way to start a meal in food-heavy Bologna.

Next up was tagliatelle with prosciutto in a butter sauce and tortelloni stuffed with ricotta in a butter and sage sauce. Yum!

For our secondi, we noticed they had spigola on the menu. Spigola is a very special type of sole from the Adriatic. It was breaded and baked. The breading contained finely chopped hazelnuts and the end result was delicate and delicious. The spigola was served with mashed potatoes, containing little bits of artichoke.

For dessert, we had fresh pineapple and pears.

One bottle of wine, mineral water, two grappas and coffee came to 111 euros.
