A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Il nome Ciacco è rimasto lo stesso per decenni ma dal 2004 Stefano Bussaglia e Salvatore Lombardo gestiscono questo locale affacciato su una tranquilla piazzetta pedonale a due passi dal vecchio mercato del quadrilatero. La sala è al piano di sotto, volte e mattoni a vista, ambiente intimo e curato. Nei mesi estivi un grazioso dehor sulla piazza. All’ingresso una credenza con esposti alcuni dei prodotti selezionati per le preparazioni.

Cucina creativa con prevalenza di pesce. Tradizione presente, immancabili i tortellini rigorosamente in brodo. Tutto il resto cambia in una continua e maniacale ricerca delle eccellenze nella materia prima e di tecniche e accostamenti sempre in evoluzione. Carta dei vini ampia, prevalenza italiana, buona proposta regionale e di bollicine mai scontate.

INSIDER tip

L’ispirazione è l’alta cucina, l’obiettivo la semplicità che la renda alla portata di tutti. Ingredienti di qualità, mani sapienti alle preparazioni, servizio votato all’accoglienza nel cuore della città.

    Delicious food and excellent service. A great first dinner in Bologna. Pannacotta with sweet crisp biscuits and a fruit compote was outstanding

    Dined al fresco so didn’t experience the full ambiance of the barrel vault ceiling basement - staff spoke excellent English - wine list is extensive - head waiter assisted with Italian wine choice (excellent Friulano) - meal #1 in Italy = 8/10 = very good start!

    We decided to go to this restaurant as we saw it on Rick Stein long weekends and was not disappointed in the slightest, excellent food although not the cheapest.

    An excellent restaurant in Bologna. Warm, welcoming, friendly service, a strong menu selection and delicious food. The fish selection was packed with dishes I could have picked... my own choices were wonderful. I would recommend the restaurant highly, and hope to return again when next in Bologna. Superb.

    The owner advised a menu; both the starter and the main course had the same ingrediënts- artichoke Price was rather high in comparison

    Excellent food, service and advice on wine. We really enjoyed the Bologna tasting menu - so much so that we returned to the restaurant the following night for another lovely meal.

    Fantastic restaurant. Attentive, helpful & very friendly staff. We had the fish & seafood which was exquisite.. the calamari & octopus dishes were probably the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere. The chef adjusted one of the desserts to make it lactose free for me. The menu made it very clear which allergens were in each dish. Halfway through lunch a thunderstorm began. The staff quickly & calmly moved everyone inside. Cracking local wine list which was very reasonably priced. Very highly recommended!

    Just as wonderful as we had hoped! Friendly, effecient and welcoming service. The waiter was wonderful and very informative about all the dishes. The food was amazing, we had the traditional Bolognese tasting menu at a reasonable price and we felt liked we had tasted all the goodies of Bologna after this visit! Highly recommend!

About the restaurant

PER GOLOSI - Il ristorante Ciacco a Bologna prende il nome dal personaggio che Dante incontra all'Inferno nel girone dei golosi. Dal 2004 è gestito da un nuovo staff di professionisti, che hanno unito la loro esperienza in diversi ristoranti storici bolognesi.

CENTRALE E CARATTERISTICO - Situato a pochi passi dalle due Torri e delle principali attrazioni, il locale sorprende per la sua particolare atmosfera: la sala da pranzo è ricavata nelle cantine di un palazzo seicentesco e all’interno è presente un pozzo.

CUCINA IBRIDA - Salvatore e Stefano accolgono i clienti per accompagnargli in un percorso nella cucina italiana e bolognese. Tradizione e creatività, territorio e nuove tendenze si sposano per creare deliziosi piatti di terra e di mare, sempre nel rispetto della stagionalità degli ingredienti.
