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.

Great place for anyone trying to get authentic italian dishes while getting away from the tourist traps, service was excellent and very accommodating when it came to explaining items on the menu. Little off the beaten path but surely worth it

Delicious Bolognese food on a quiet street with friendly, patient service for non-Italian speakers. The food was very rich, if a tad salty. I enjoyed the gramiglia with sausage and the rabbit with potatoes, while my husband ate the signature pasta 'La Fontana' (green egg noodles with tomato, onion, and prosciutto) and the 'La Bologna' secondi (fried pork cutlet covered in Parma ham and Parmesan cheese). The waiter gave us time to digest so we could find room for some strawberries with marscapone and coffee. The offer here for an early reservation saved us a decent amount. I wouldn't recommend this as the only meal you have when visiting Bologna, but it's a solid choice if you're in the neighbourhood.

Piacevole scoperta a Bologna! Piccolo ristorante dallo stile moderno e curato. Molto buoni i taglieri, serviti con vari panini appena sfornati (squisiti!) Primi non abbondanti ma ricercati e ben conditi. Con i caffè ci hanno offerto delle ottime meringhe. Consigliato!

All the dishes were fantastic. Good quality products, excellent presentation and portions just right. Excellent local ecological wine. Asked them to surprise us with a desert of their choice and it was to die for: chocolate cake with mascarpone!
Nicola was fantastic, explained everything in English. Well worth a visit.

Small restaurant with really nice decor, charming and laid back . Service was friendly and unhurried. The lady in the kitchen cooks classics wonderfully. We've been living in Italy for a few years now and this was accomplished home cooking at its best. Do not hesitate to go.

I will be returning very soon. The ambiance was excellent, as was the decor, service, and food. I live in NYC and eat out frequently and this was excellent. If I lived in Bologna I would be a regular. I will most likely return a couple of times before I depart from Bologna in early June.

The most sweet little restaurant! The service was second to none. We are an English couple and we found the place on TripAdvisor. The menu was in Italian (which I like) but the waiters was so helpful and friendly and said to ask if we had any questions. The food was great and it was well worth the 5 minute walk from the centre to get there.
