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

Il Posto è mitico, proprio lì, in Massarenti 37, c’era il locale dove si radunava negli anni ’90 la scena musicale bolognese e non solo. Dal 2013 il giovanissimo chef Giampaolo Rola, classe 1993, lo rileva e lo gestisce con passione insieme alla sua famiglia, in sala il papà e la sorella. Moderno e minimal, apparecchiatura curata, alle pareti illustrazioni creative, tavoli raccolti per un ambiente giovane ma ricercato.

La proposta è una cucina italiana creativa con sempre una scelta di tradizionale. Protagonista la materia prima di alta qualità selezionata con cura e lavorata in modo semplice per esaltarne le caratteristiche. Molto pesce, tanti i crudi ma anche la sfoglia tirata al mattarello. Per i vini una prevalenza di etichette nazionali con tanti bianchi e piccola selezione di champagne.

Scritto da Francesca Gamberini, bolognese, ex ristoratrice, si occupa di cultura gastronomica da quindici anni. Attualmente collabora con agenzie di comunicazione nella produzione di eventi e ha un blog frafoodstories.com dove racconta storie di cucina, cibo e viaggi.

INSIDER tip

La squadra è giovanissima, l’entusiasmo e la creatività al massimo come nello spaghetto alla chitarra destrutturato, servito su una crema di zucchine con tartare di gamberi e chips di speck.

    Die Speisen waren zwar hübsch angerichtet, dies konnte jedoch nicht über die durchschnittliche Qualität der Küche hinwegtäuschen. Frittierte Meeresfrüchte waren zu trocken. Avocadocreme hat nicht geschmeckt, war vielleicht nicht mehr ganz frisch? Die Salate waren lieblos zubereitet, die einzelnen Zutaten müssen schon sehr hochwertig sein, um sie unbearbeitet auf den Teller zu legen, wie es hier der Fall war. Diese Liste ließe sich noch weiter fortsetzen... Aufgrund der vielen guten Bewertungen haben wir deutlich mehr erwartet. Produkte und Geschmack überzeugten uns nicht, auch das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis stimmte leider nicht. Das Servicepersonal war aber sehr aufmerksam und freundlich. Ich tue mich immer etwas schwer beim Vergeben von schlechten Bewertungen. Dennoch bin ich davon überzeugt, dass es besser ist, eine ehrliche Meinung abzugeben, da letztlich alle Seiten davon profitieren können. Vielleicht hatten wir auch einfach Pech und haben einen schlechten Abend erwischt.

    Fresh seafood starter with osyter, octopus and fishes. Pasta were good and we have lobster for main which is also delicious. Nice and cute little waitress who speak English so we ordered our food easily. Long walk from the Bologna station but still worth it❤️

    It was okay. There were some close to good and then some misses, especially the vegetarian option ( big miss????) . We walked 1.3 miles & that was fine, but that was actually favorite part of the night.

    A fantastic range of dishes on the menu to suits all tastes, truly unbelievably tasty food and top notch friendly staff as an added bonus. Location is slightly off the beaten track, but well worth the outing.

    I loved it! It was the first time going to Bologna and this was the first restaurant I chose. The dishes I chose were beautifully made and brought a surprising and modern twist to Italian cuisine. The staff and service were of excellent quality and I felt right at home! I will make this restaurant my go to place whenever I am in Bologna.

    Just go and enjoy. Extremely professional and helpful staff. A place to go as a treat as it might be considered a little expensive but as the quality of the food and wine is so high, one will realise its value. Unusual menu which forces you to try something new. Lovely place.

About the restaurant

LOCALE RICERCATO - Il ristorante Il Posto è uno storico locale bolognese noto dagli anni ’50, che intende la cucina come espressione culturale, capace di combinare in modo originale sapori, tradizione e creatività, rigorosamente accompagnata da vini e birre di qualità e mai banali.

SAPORI ITALIANI - Un mix unico di atmosfera minimal e informalità schietta, dove fermarsi per un calice di vino accompagnato dagli sfizi della cucina, per un pranzo sano o una cena genuina e di sostanza. Lo chef propone cucina italiana e contemporanea con influenze regionali, rigorosamente con prodotti freschi e di stagione.

RIPARATO - D’estate si può mangiare al fresco della veranda all’aperto, un posto nel Posto che non ti aspetti, nascosto dal traffico di via Massarenti.
