Restaurants in Bologna

Antico Ristorante Benso  


A famed Bolognese institution, BensoCuisine is frequented by both fans and footballers, who occupy its labyrinthine network of subtly-lit rooms. No-nonsense Bolognese cuisine adds to the flavor. Reservations required. Open 12:30–2:30 p.m. and 7:30-11:30 p.m. Closed in August. — David R. Deropolous

Bentivoglio  


Dining and jazz at Bentivoglio.

The best place to hear live jazz in Bologna. Set in a cavernous cellar with an extensive wine list to match a basic menu of pasta and meat. Over 400 labels and discarded bottles line the walls as proof. Reservations strongly advised on weekends. Lunch: 12:15-2:45 p.m.; dinner 8 p.m.-2 a.m. daily. — David R. Deropolous

Nuovo Notai  


Truffles, mushrooms, and ragú a

This is mushroom and truffle heaven. In fact, most of Nuovo Notai's dishes use them in one form or another, which makes for a delectable array of sauces and stuffings in the Tuscan tradition. The green asparagus tart is appetizing, as is castagne alla fiamma (flaming cheshnuts). This stylish, expensive, central and centrally located dining that reflects pan-Italian cooking without limiting itself to Bologna staples. At best, it's a delight. At worst, it's inconsistent. — David R. Deropolous

Osteria dell’Infedele  


In from the arcades...

Former Prime Minister Romano Prodi’s hangout (when here, he lives on the same street), this small osteria tucked behind Piazza Santo Stefano is an ideal place for quiet time. Dim lighting adds to the Parisian ambience with film memorabilia adorning the walls. Grab a board of prosciutto or cheese to soak up the beer on tap and while away a couple of hours, even if you are not inclined to spend it talking about politics. Open: 7 p.m.-2:30 a.m. — David R. Deropolous

Tamburini Antica Salsamenteria Bolognese  


Via Drapperie, Bologna.

A deli and wine shop that serves hot lunches, too, right in the center. The cheeses, cured meats, and salads alone are too good to resist! The wine on tap won’t win any awards but it’s far cheaper than water. Better yet is Giovanni’s own Taburini label or Terre di Capitani’s Sagrantino. Great place to put together a picnic lunch to go, too. Friendly, cozy, and reasonable prices. — Judy Edelhoff

Trattoria Fantoni  


Via del Pratello... rich in din

Excellent traditional trattoria with excellent Bolognese cuisine. Very popular with locals. Nice atmosphere and good service. Dinner reservations required. Lots of nearby bars and enoteche. Open: 12-2:30 p.m. and 8-10:15 p.m. — David R. Deropolous
