Among typical restaurants and trattorias in Bologna, in a historic seventeenth-century palazzo, right in the middle of the old town, the Restaurant-Osteria LA TRAVIATA every day captures its guests with the flavours of Emilia, the family warmth, the unique flavour or regional dishes and a truly distinctive location, under “the Bologna arcades”.

About Us

A family Tradition

"My father, Rinaldo, born in 1928, an imaginative, reserved but assertive cook, left an imprint on this restaurant, preserving its century-old tradition. Today he would be proud of what I have been able to accomplish as well. Our history is in the vocation for good cuisine, which we have been cultivating from one generation to the next, and in the love for our region, Emilia, which is so rich in art, history and culinary tradition. "

Our cuisine

If you wish to eat well in Bologna, enjoying the typical cuisine, you will always feel at home in our restaurant!
We are much appreciated for our hand-made fresh pasta and cuisine based on a “ready to serve” concept, constantly enhanced by typical products of the season. Cooking at La Traviata is a concert of flavours… With a selection of tortellini, tagliatelle, fresh lasagne and excellent dishes made with seasonal ingredients, our cuisine includes all our passion, to make sure that every lunch or dinner becomes a pleasant occasion for our guests.

Timeless atmosphere

Walking into the Restaurant La TRAVIATA is like delving into a unique atmosphere.
This is a family-run establishment, as is the atmosphere you breathe here.
In our restaurant you can stop time, to taste a good wine, an excellent dish, always an outstanding atmosphere in summer evenings, when it is so pleasant to dine al fresco, in the romantic outdoor setting under the arcades, or during the winter for a candle-lit dinner, an evening with friends or a business lunch.

"Wine and Music were always the best corkscrew for me."
