Vicolo Colombina is...

A different locale, a place of conviviality and sociability, warm, friendly.

This is Vicolo Colombina.
Not a restaurant, not a wine bar, not a tavern but all of these things together. In a small alley in old Bologna, a few steps from Piazza Maggiore in the heart of the city, lies this establishment that is proposed as a reference point for those seeking genuine and sincere cooking, a personal wine list and at the same time a convivial atmosphere, simple and elegant, with a friendly, hospitable service.

Sommelier Gianni Fruzzetti | Chef. Max Poggi                  

Our supervisor of proposed dishes is Massimiliano Poggi, a highly experienced chef, well known and appreciated in town. At Vicolo Colombina, Massimiliano Poggi brings the best of the culinary art with the service of tradition, while respecting the raw material and the seasonality that characterizes its cuisine, with short cooking time to enhance the characteristics of the products, and with an excellent quality/price.

Vicolo Colombina focuses on recreating the homely atmosphere of the trattorias of the past, where you find warmth and desire in one place.

Because Vicolo Colombina is a meeting place, to find oneself, to eat well, to enjoy a very special wine, to chat in a place that knows how to combine simplicity and taste, sophistication and respect for honest flavors.

Wine cellar

Vicolo Colombina has a truly exceptional wine cellar, which dates back to 1200. In the restructuring of the locale, the winery has not been touched, with the intention to preserve the ideals of the environment, for the rest of the wines. Gianni, the sommelier, chooses them carefully and presents them with conviction and passion as one who deeply loves his job, particularly skilled in pairing wine with the dishes that the chef offers.
