Tradition is a successful evolution

The Pappagallo Restaurant was established in 1919 and has remained a landmark in town for almost a century. Here, Bologna’s history and tradition blend in with evolution and modernity to grant a unique taste experience. Located in a historic 13th century building, right in the heart of medieval Bologna and next to the Two Towers, our restaurant presents its guests with an elegant and welcoming atmosphere. The interior is typical of old bolognese architecture and boasts high-vaulted ceilings with big crystal chandeliers illuminating the many autographed photos collected by the owners over the years. Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Alfred Hitchcock, Sharon Stone, Lionel Richie, Ugo Tognazzi, Matt Dillon, Brigitte Nielsen, Frank Sinatra and many other artists and stars of the last 100 years have chosen the Pappagallo for their taste experience, and even nowadays you could meet someone you may want to ask for an autograph…
