Selected by INSIDER

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

Il nome scelto per questo ristorante di via delle Moline, è un’espressione tipica bolognese. Una volta c’era qui una famosa libreria dove spesso si sostava oltre l’acquisto per discussioni e scambi di opinioni sulle letture. Giovanni, che ha rilevato tre anni fa questi spazi, ha voluto mantenere con quel passato colto un legame forte, la definisce una librosteria. Ha continuato ad ospitare molti volumi alle pareti e restaurandolo con le sue mani, ha ricreato un’atmosfera di casa, accogliente, un luogo che ora celebra la buona cucina bolognese e la sua cultura.

Vera rarità, solo cuochi “autoctoni”, le ricette sono quelle della nonna, delle famiglie, ritrovate e riproposte come il Balanzone, sfoglia verde ripiena di ricotta e mortadella o il dolce al mascarpone. Vini selezionati dal territorio.

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

Cibo per il corpo, bicchieri per lo spirito e libri per l’anima è il motto di questo locale che invita alla sosta prolungata, un luogo gestito con il cuore il senso dell’ospitalità tipici di Bologna.

    This restaurant has a nice set up and you can sit outside. The food is very good and well priced. Recommend the Lasagna and the Bolognese pasta, but everything looked and smelled amazing. Enjoy!

    Delicious food, friendly and fast service, cozy atmosphere based on a great unique concept, more than fair price. Would totally visit again when in Bologna.

    Pretty touristy even though a local recommended it (appears to seat tourists in the front and locals in the back); server was friendly but food was just average.

    Very touristy. Stale bread. Poor service with only one wait person. She did good for covering entire restaurant. Lasagna Bolognese was tasty but cooked until mushy.

    Nice location and setting with a small menu choice. One of our diners required gluten free options and there were a few options available.
