Under the portico, a black cat is ruffled by the white “Biassanot” sign, a dialect form that stands for “night chewer”. As you enter the crowded venue, the text of the homonymous song by Dino Sarti appears among other objects hanging on the walls. Three rooms in rustic style, terracotta floors, dark wood ceiling. The clientele is made up of Bolognese but also many foreigners, who have known the restaurant on the occasion of the various fairs that take place in Bologna and who have been booking from abroad for years.
The place is intimate and welcoming with a summer terrace
Under the banner of the typical Bolognese cuisine, the first traditional classics such as lasagna, tortellini, tortelloni, tagliatelle, all strictly handmade .. rolled with a rolling pin. For the latter the choice is very varied; excellent grilled meats with grill and charcoal, superb Florentine steaks, excellent fillets and tasty vegetables. All the desserts are homemade, as well as the ice cream. There is also a well-stocked cellar, especially with regional wines. Each dish is studied in detail and the customer is served in the best way.
The closing day is Sunday but it is not observed during fairs.
It is difficult to imagine it today, but the city is crossed by a dense network of waters and bridges hidden under the streets and buildings. Almost sixty km of historic sewers and pipelines, canals, canals and streams that affect the center of Bologna. The route touches the most characteristic points of the history of the Bolognese waters, where you can still see what is otherwise only imaginable. We will listen to the story of when Bologna, thanks to water, was a great economic power, its secrets, its weaknesses. Starting from the Serraglio dell’Aposa, the itinerary will then continue along the waters and the places associated with them, passing through the iconic window on the Reno canal in via Piella, to end at the port of Porta Galliera built by the Bentivoglio, where Lucrezia embarked. Borgia headed to Ferrara for her wedding.
