Ristorante Pappagallo

Housed in an 18th-century building in Bologna’s historic centre, “The Parrot” is more than a century old. And while the crisp white linens and tuxedoed waiters may seem a throwback, this gastronomic icon in a palazzo by the two towers doesn’t rest on its laurels. The kitchen makes all its pasta in-house and keeps it fresh with contemporary twists on the regional cuisine, such as tender Iberian pork cheek nestled on butternut squash with coffee-flavoured tagliatelle. Classics, such as the legendary spinach-tinted lasagna or saffron tagliatelle, are treated with equal reverence. And don’t miss the mascarpone for dessert. During warmer months, the arcade’s outdoors tables are filled with diners enjoying the weather and people watching.
