Traditionally, if you were searching for the best food at the best prices, trattorie were the first choice in Bologna. Today you can still find this perfect match here at Trattoria Osteria Buca Manzoni, where a cozy and fully refurbished place, local ingredients and traditional recipes, and a complete range of services (full accessibility to disabled people, pet friendly, child WC, phone recharge points at tables) will make you enjoy again the original flavours of authentic Bolognese cooking.

At the start of the last century Pasquale Rizzoli (a local artist known for his scuplted graves and the statue in Piazza VIII Agosto), modified the ancient cellars of Casa Conoscenti, turning them into a trattoria and osteria. During its long history the restaurant has been known by many names, but we decided to get it back to its original one, "Buca Manzoni".segue
History around us
