Three of the best restaurants we ate at during our recent trip to Italy were in Bologna, which apparently is an academic and dining city.
Two were family-owned neighborhood restaurants, one with a Sicilian recipes and the other with rich Italian recipes.
RI.NO.S was also called Bully’s and we had lunch and dinner there the same day.
Our waitress, Niery, and Monica shared pictures of their grandchildren and everything Niery suggested was great.
We had an olive and cheese plate that was to kill for and our entrees were delicious. It was so enjoyable we sat on the covered patio with a heat index of 105 and didn’t really notice it. It helped a half-liter of delicious house Chianti was $5 (Euro).
Ironically, the most expensive meal we had was also our worst. That was in Milan and Monica sent her’s back and they still made me pay for it.
Was just thinking about Bully’s this morning and wishing it was a little closer.
