A restaurant that changes the menu each month to reflect a different region of Italy. Superb cooking, charming atmosphere.

Directions: Off via Castiglione (near La Sorbetteria), across from the theatre.

During a brutally hot week in Bologna we chanced by this restaurant down the street from our apartment. It appeared very popular, especially on nights the theatre across the street was active. We liked the look of the menu, which shifts monthly to a different region of Italy. After a week of Bolognese cooking, we were looking for something a bit different.

The night we were there the menu was influenced by the Molise. We shared an antipasto of stuffed calamari, marvelously tender and stuffed with a very tasty mixture, accented by mint oil. We wished we had ordered two, it was so delicious. I had a secondo of briefly seared tuna, wonderfully fresh and served with two light sauces. My husband had a dish of slow-cooked suckling pig, very tasty. We had contorni of crushed potatoes and sautéed spinach, well above the average. Dessert was also excellent, a light chocolate torte with coffee mascarpone. The very pleasant gentleman helped with our wine selection, and we greatly enjoyed the whole evening. Prices very fair for this high level of cooking. Suggest you reserve if the theatre is open, though the midweek evening we were there the place was very quiet. Dinner for two (one antipasto, 2 secondi, 2 contorni, 1 dessert, bottle of wine) was 77 euros.
