La Bottega di Franco opened in 1981 in Bologna’s city centre. In 1995, La Bottega moved to a beautiful villa just a few minutes by car from the city center, only about 4 km north of the centre and central Station. The 18th century mansion was once owned by a Bolognese duchess, when Via Agucchi was still considered country-side. La Bottega is perfect for a romantic, candlelit dinner for couples, as well as for business and groups lunch or dinner. The restaurant has a veranda with access to the garden during the summer, whereas the central room is warmed up by a beautiful fireplace during the winter.

The menu offers a wide variety of options, ranging from traditional “Bolognese cuisine”, with its famous homemade fresh pasta, to seasonal specialties that include fish and seafood or truffles from the nearby Appennini area. Finally, in case you want to reach us by car, the restaurant has a large and private parking lot. Opening hours, from Monday to Saturday, are: lunch 12.30-14.00, dinner 20.00-22.00, closed on Sundays.
