Drogheria della Rosa

This charming restaurant in central Bologna is housed in an old pharmacy and has kept all of the charms from the previous occupants, right down to the wooden shelves lined with glass apothecary jars. In charge since 1994, owner Emanuele Addone warmly greets guests, insisting they try his first-press olive oil from Lucca or dainty tortellini in a rich capon broth. Don’t come here for a quiet, candlelit evening. This is soulful cooking at its best, respecting traditional Bolognese cooking with a dash of some of the greatest flavours from the rest of Italy. The shelves also hold great wines from the Emilia Romagna region. Showered with well-deserved recognition, this little restaurant has been visited by such big personalities as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny de Vito and Francis Ford Coppola. Addone personally waits on customers, offering insight into the origins of flavours, ideas behind the dishes, and the best wine to accompany each meal.
