Gourmet Bolognese cuisine since 1919

Since 1919, Piazza della Mercanzia has been home to a place that’s famous for excellent typical Bolognese cuisine: Ristorante Pappagallo, set in a historical 14th-century building just a stone’s throw from the Two Towers. Over its near-century of history, the restaurant has seen its share of celebrities and movie stars, artists and musicians - everyone from Sophia Loren to Gina Lollobrigida, Alfred Hitchcock to Sharon Stone, Lionel Richie to Ugo Tognazzi, Matt Dillon, Brigitte Nielsen, Francesco Guccini, and many more besides.

Our cuisine is deeply rooted in the land - our land - yet enjoys a creative twist that sets it apart. That’s why we pay such careful attention to the raw materials we use, yet aren’t afraid to play with them, always seeking out the perfect balance between flavors, aromas and sensory experiences. Pappagallo is a unique blend of elegance and hospitality, tradition and innovation, where we think globally but always keep Bologna in our hearts.
