San Petronio, who was the eighth Bishop of Bologna, is the patron saint of the town. He lived in the mid of the fifth century and came to Bologna probably from Spain. The Saint is most honoured and beloved by the citizens of Bologna, he was the one who ordered building of so-called "le sette chiese" (the seven churches), but before it he ordered the reconstructions of Bolognese homes destroyed by many conquerers. At the same time, the defending city walls were built around the town of Bologna. The October 4 is the celebrating day of San Petronio.

Shrimp was fresh, the rest mediocre
This restaurant is special, because both Ma Kettle and I agreed to eat here without any arm twisting. Odd.
It is also very handy for shoppers attending the market in Piazza Agosto, as it is located on the southern fringe of the square.
The food was just average for Chinese cuisine. We've had much better in Canada, but it was also the best we've eaten since our arrival in Italy. Mind you, our only other experience was in Verona, and that was, let us say, un-memorable. The shrimp was wonderful, very flavourful, the noodles crisp, the vegetarian rice was excellent, but the white rice was cold and hard. The sweet and sour chicken was lightly seasoned and the coating was deep fried to perfection. However, the fowl appeared to have taken flight prior to being dunked in the batter.
Ma Kettle had a mix of greens with very tender beef, but the sauce was rather gelatinous in texture. The egg rolls were too hard, crispy, and flavourless for my palet. Ma thoroughly enjoyed them.
Most annoying however, was each plate was served as it was prepared, rather than bringing everything at once. Possibly it was due to the tiny table we occupied, but we prefer to share the portions we order.
Ma Kettle enjoyed her meal, I was barely satisfied overall. You be the judge.
this is a fashion pizzeria in the heart of Bologna, in very up date now but....the service and the quality is the worst....
I was there for an anniversary dining....we reserved a table but they put us outside and it was cold ( May 2005 was cold).
The pizza was normal, but expensive...a Margherita for 9 Euros ( avarege between 5 and 6)...the beer was normal beer put in big cristal glass ...for red wine!!!!
They want to give u a chic restaurant but the service is under the stundad, expensive and they woulden't serve us the cake we have bought for our frinds....a question of health....so after a 1/2 hour waiting the bill we took the cake and we ate it onthe stair of Piazza Maggiore. Nothing
Scala della Montagnola
These late 19th century steps lead from the bus station / Piazza 20 Settembre up to the Montagnola gardens (Giardine della Montagnola). It is said that the depicted figures sybolize some of the city's legends and historical stories.
