    Made a reservation and on arrival only 4 others in the restaurant. In hindsight should have turned round and left. Two of the main courses on the menu were unavailable. Anyway ordered two pasta dishes and 2 mains. The pasta dishes were both excellent but both mains were disappointing. Lack of atmosphere and in and out in just over an hour

    The staff and atmosphere was nice, but the food was disappoiting. We ordered the rabbit anf eggplant parmesan. The rabbit was way too salty and eggpland was very vinegary. Also it had pork meat in it which was not described in the menu. Also the menu was completely in italian.

    Great little place. No English on the menu but with a mere smattering of Italian anyone should get by. We sampled the menu and platti di giorni and had delicious meals. The owner was attentive and friendly, the restaurant busy with locals, the food and wine excellent and the bill a nice surprise.

    Went here on our last night in Bologna and loved the fact that it was in a quiet area and the other customers were locals. The bread was the best in Italy, crispy bread rolls with soft centres...delicious! All our meals were very tasty. We ordered the Meatballs and Torteloni alla Zucca which were outstanding and both on the specials menu. I had the Melanzane Parmigiana which was beautifully cooked and so creamy in texture. To finish we all had the Panna Cotta which was magnificent. Meals were reasonably priced and very good quality. We were disappointed at the very small serve of wine in the glass for €5, but apart from that, would highly recommend this restaurant.

    The service was good, and the meat and pasta courses were amazing, however the lack of variety for dessert was disappointing.

    Simply beautiful. We stopped off in Bologna in search of some tasty ragu and we were not disappointed by La Fontana. It was spectacular. If only we were a little hungrier we would have had a second bowl. The puddings were also amazing, the panna cotta was to die for and the pistachio semifreddo was delicious. The service was fantastic, warm and welcoming. The next time we are in Bologna we will definitely come back and try all the other gems on the menu.

    Terrific menu options range from the traditional to elevated versions of the traditional. We loved our food as much as anything we had in Bologna during several weeks in the city.
