Vicolo Colombina is...

A different kind of space, a warm and cozy place of conviviality and sociality. It is not a restaurant, not a wine bar, not a tavern; it is all of these things together. Located in a small alley in Bologna’s historical downtown, in the heart of the city only steps from Piazza Maggiore, this restaurant is a standout destination for anyone seeking authentic and heartfelt cuisine, an extensive wine cellar with Italian and international labels you can walk through to browse and select your chosen bottles, and a simple, polished yet convivial atmosphere with friendly, welcoming service.

  • "The restaurant is located in the center of Bologna in a cozy and romantic alley. We were well advised in our choice of wine. We tried the onions from Medicina, the potato and mortadella soufflé, gramigna with sausage sauce and Bologna-style cheese cake, everything was delicious!"

  • "I ate here two or three years ago and it was divine. Then later I went back several times, for work, and let's say that this place has become my favorite place for eating when I'm in Bologna. Excellent food quality, amazing staff.."
