In Bologna, a city acclaimed to be the culinary capital of Italy, where does one find the best tagliatelle al ragu, aka pasta with Bolognese sauce? Thanks to the recommendation of our hotel, we discovered Ristorante Donatello, a family-owned restaurant founded in 1903. Upon entering the restaurant, you notice all the photos of celebrities on the walls that have stopped by to dine at this institution. 3 of us ordered their 3 pasta special which was a sampling of lasagna with bechamel sauce, tortelloni, and grimagnia with pork sauce. We also ordered their tagliatelle al ragu. All 3 pastas were so fresh and delicious. And the grimagnia, a pasta similar to spaghetti but with shorter strands, was by far my favorite pasta. For dessert, we ordered torrincino (ice cream with nougatine and also a Bologna specialty) and a traditional tiramisu. Both were outstanding! We even got to meet the owners at the end, what a lovely end to our delicious meal. For its ambiance, service, and food, Ristorante Donatello was unanimously our favorite restaurant during our week in Italy!
Dad and I ate there on our last night in Italy. It was a lovely place, with great attention to detail and love of service. The food was good - we had some traditional dishes and enjoyed everything - but the service was wonderful and made the place.
Lovely Italien food in an authentic atmosphere with very nice service. Highly recommendable!
