Located in the center of Bologna, the bread basket of Italy, Trattoria Del Rosso serves “piatti della tradizione Bolognese”  – “Traditional Dishes of Bologna” – seven days a week! O Trattoria Del Rosso’s goal is to serve their loyal guests a fine authentic, traditional meal that might be found in a typical Bologna home.  Its specialties include house made, fresh pasta lasagna, tagliatelle, tagliolini, tortellini, tortelloni, gramigna.  Enjoy the true Crescentine served with the typical Salumi (cold cuts). You can wash down your favorite dish with local regional house wine.  And, of course, don’t forget the trattoria’s marvelous desserts.

Back in 1860 the restaurant was known as Cafe Del Rosso. Today it retains that name and is also know as Trattoria Del Rosso. It is the only restaurant to have preserved its historic Bologna name in its original location. Caffè (Trattoria) del Rosso, was characterized by an informal and family atmosphere with soft music and comfortable rustic furniture. Today it is the same and people still come to the trattoria from all walks of life – entertainers, businessmen, students and professors.

Some may ask, “What is a trattoria?” The answer is simple. A “Trattoria” is a popular place to eat that is usually located in a central working-class neighborhood, or as we say, it’s “where the locals go for simple traditional, regional food, ample portions, simple furniture and value pricing.” A trattoria is different from a “restaurant”, which is tipically more expensive, has smaller portions and is a bit on the “fancy” side.

Italians love “Trattorias” because they are family owned and operated. At Trattoria del Rosso foods are “home-made” largely from family recipes….. food that grandma used to make!  Menus are short because everything is prepared fresh.  In addition, Trattoria del Rosso recognizes today’s economics and delivers an excellent value for your money.

Trattoria del Rosso is famous for its 10 euros for the menu of the day; so the next time you are in Bologna, stop by for a meal you will not forget!

Trattoria del Rosso is located in the heart of the city. Please contact the restaurant and they will be glad to answer any questions you might have about their menu or their wonderful gastronomic city. Visit for lunch or dinner, seven days a week.
