A sprawling large dining room a little lacking in atmosphere.

But helpful staff doing all they can to please . Good food but not outstanding but then good value for the price point .

We had a superb meal. Service was eager and very pleasant, though the waiter was a bit inefficient and the timing of our courses was erratic. Food was the best we’ve had in Bologna—we loved everything from mushroom/ricotta tart to fettuccine with truffles to duck. Wine list fails to identify vintages of many bottles, but the prices are reasonable and we enjoyed our Valpolicella very much. We think this is an excellent restaurant if service can become slightly more efficient.

This was our second visit to this restaurant at lunch time. It is quiet at that time but the service and food are both excellent. My husband ordered lasagna and I had tortelloni with ricotta and porcini mushrooms. They were both delicious. The manager was very helpful on both occasions, wanting to please and being attentive, while in no way rushing us. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Bologna.

We were looked after by very friendly young staff members, got good advice for food and wine and had spent a really nice evening at A Balús. Would certainly go again.

Perfetto! We spent an amazing moment in this restaurant! The place is very warm, peaceful and nice, the quality of the product is very good. I have tried the duck that was so delicious and tasty! For the starter we tried the cheese and meats cuts which were so tasty and qualitative! Little quantity, little choice but huge quality and that is important! To finish I tried the chocolate cake with mascarpone cream and.... Yummmyyyy! Grazie mille for this dinner, it was perfetto!

I went on a Wednesday night in August at 8:30 and it was very quiet, and felt it as the dining room is relatively large, particularly for 9 covers. The service was friendly despite the language barrier. The food was traditional and basic, the pasta bolognese was the highlight.

Made very welcome on arrival. A man who we thought may be the owner was trying to explain what various options incorporated but his English and our Italian were not very compatible :). However our choice of starters, mains and dessert were all extremely nice, as was our choice of red Lambrudco wine. An excellent meal.

Lovely service, great food. The restaurant was really quiet, so lacking in atmosphere and buzz. The decor is a little sparse. But so friendly and great service!

A beautiful space with impeccable service. We thought pastas were delicious. The duck dish (with thyme and honey) was absurdly delicious. Desserts were beautiful.

Highly recommended. Tortellini with ricotta and porcine was top class. Also really delicious was the wild boar stew with polenta. The service was attentive and friendly. No complaints.
