Via Casaglia is the road which from via Saragozza rises towards the hills of Bologna, towards the point where Santuario di San Luca , visible from almost everywhere in the city, was built. Following this road, leaving behind the traffic and chaos of the city center, in ony a few minutes you will find yourself at the hillside villa where this restaurant, the only one of its kind, has been established in a sea of green and hillside tranquility. At Dal Nonno, excellent house wine and snacks are served, including crescentine and tigelli with all types of cheese and cold meats. In the summer it is an ideal spot to escape the Bolognese heat; you can eat and drink outdoors, admiring the beautiful view.
This villa was the best eating experience I have had in Italy sofar. The resteraunts of the city can be typical and hit or miss. Although the food is more varied at a typial resteraunt, the setting is like nowhere else i have been. A quick drive through beautiful hillsides and you wind up eating the best meats and cheeses. I wouldnt recommend for vegetarian eaters though, as the food is mostly meat and fat based. Definately worth the trip.
