Osteria del Cappello
Cold cuts, wines and typical local dishes
in Bologna since 1375

The tavern where I eat my meals is one of the places in which I love Italy.
Festive dogs come in, nobody knows who their owner is, naked children with a straw flask in their hands.
I eat alone, just like the Pope, I do not talk to anyone and I have as much fun as I do at the theatre.

Umberto Saba

We have decided to revive the tradition of this ancient Osteria to valorise
Bologna, its local area, food and
conviviality , to rediscover a rich and important food and wine tradition
and to enjoy the pleasures of a leisurely meal eaten in good company.
To avoid waste and ensure cuisine as healthy and authentic as tradition would have it, all
Osteria dishes are made from scratch and prepared fresh
every day.

We make our own bread, pasta and sweets.
