Great Sunday lunch with truffles and mushrooms
We booked a table at this local restaurant for Sunday lunch – it has a strong reputation for truffles and mushrooms. The restaurant is very easy to find – follow SS64 out of Bologna as you just 2kms past Vergato you will see a sign for Orelia on the left – follow for 1.5kms and you arrive at the restaurant. On arriving at the restaurant we were shown to a table inside the dining room and given menus – available in English and Italian. We were given bread, salumi and cheese while we made our selection from the extensive menu. We started with antipasti salumi followed tagliatelle with butter and truffles. For main course Scallopine with mushrooms and truffles. All the dishes were just superb especially the accompanying side dishes of fritto misto – deep fried vegetables but not greasy and grilled vegetables. Service was efficient and friendly but not hurried and waiting staff allowed plenty of time for explanation about the dishes and the menu. One thing I noticed which is rare – is that the food was freshly cooked arriving at the table hot. I know this sounds odd but rarely does food arrive really hot, usually it's warm as restaurants leave it on hot plates/counters etc., Sadly we were too full to order a desert, but for the meal including water, house wine, café and tip was €55.00 which is excellent value considering the quality of ingredients used. The restuarant also offers a special menu for €27 which includes 5 courses – definitely we will try this menu on our next visit. As the restaurant is very popular with locals and Bolognesei coming out for a Sunday lunch in the country - you are advised to book in advance.

Best steak we have ever tasted!
We decided to try a new local restaurant to celebrate having family and friends to stay with us in Italy. We walked into Ellena and Ernesto's restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at the lovely contemporary interior - none of the old traditional old furniture but really smart interiors. With an extensive menu of steaks and pasta dishes - we started with a dish of complimentary sliced meats and tigelle followed by our order 3 types of pasta - ragu, torteloni and tortellini. Followed by fillet steaks 250grams pepe verde and funghi - served with potatoes and grilled vegetables. The steaks were beautifully cooked tender and succulent. There is an extensive stock of wine but we settled for a litre of house red. We decided not to have desert and went straight to café. The total bill including wine, water and cover charge €110.00. We thought this was very good value bearing in mind 3 fillet steaks.Service was attentive but not overbearing and Ellena did her best to cope with our beginners Italian language. We will definitely return again. Vergato and the SS64 has many great traditional restaurants and it great to find a real gem that is offering something different.

Excellent trattoria, excellent food, excellent people
It is rare to find such quality at such modest prices in the hills south of Bologna. It is in a place beloved by one of the greatest painters from Bologna, Giorgio Morandi, who lived here and who painted the local farmhouses and the local landscape. Lots of fresh porcini mushrooms and crisp polenta, tagliatelle with nettles and a variety of sauces (real Bolognese, mushroom). Good local salami, and fresh seasonal poultry.Fried sage leaves and excellent vegetables at 3-4 Euros. This is a family-run place and the cook is attentive to detail, the quality of the food is excellent, and the service is the best you can find, friendly, accommodating (you can ask to modify dishes according to your needs). The local wines, especially Sangiovese are also very good and moderately priced. They deserve all possible success.

Feel at home and enjoy our home-made pasta along with our local and regional specialties. Although often misused, “region” and “tradition” are still key-words for us. Our cuisine derives directly from my grandmother’s, Maria, and my mother’s, Cesarina, re

Voted my favourite Italian restaurant!!
10 years of touring Italy I have now found my favourite restaurant ! Didn't stay at the hotel but used the restaurant 3 nights on the trot!Well priced, gorgeous fresh food and excellent service ! Such a great meal, starting with a complimentary plate of starters ! With the usual bread and oils.We both had the most stunning steaks with a large salad bowl and sparkling water which had a price tag of 29 euro for two .As mad as it seems we struggle to get Lasagne in Italy but they served a beautiful green pasta one here costing about 7-8 euro.Amazing place! How easy it will be to go back I'm not sure as its up in the mountains. If I ever was that way I would jump at the chance.Dear Guest, thank you so much for your excellent review.It is a pleasure to read you had a great experience at our restaurant and you appreciated also the cuisine proposals by our "cuoche" Miranda and Marcella. We are a "traditional bolognese Trattoria" and we every day work with passion.Looking forward to welcome you again to my home.A presto! Annamaria

Recently dined at this restaurant one evening while staying in the area and would recommend a visit to enjoy the pleasant and relaxed atmosphere in this award winning establishment. My pizza was superb and the pannacotta and berries to finish off was delicious. Good wine and service plus value for money.

The best pizza ever and more
This family-run restaurant was a perfect find. The staff are charming, polite and welcoming. Over several visits, we ate dishes from each area of the menu. Everything we tried was delicious, great quality ingredients, cooked to perfection. The chef even makes his own bread and salamis. Generous portion size and good value for money. An impressive selection of grappa and quite honestly the best pizza we have ever eaten. We will definitely be back for more
