Fodor's Review

The darling of the media, film, and fashion communities, this classic restaurant off Piazza del Popolo is not only a perennial hot spot, but a convenient lunch break mid-shopping spree. The offerings adhere to the hearty tradition of Bologna, so start with a plate of sweet prosciutto di Parma, then move on to the traditional egg pastas of Emilia-Romagna. Secondi include the famous bollito misto, a steaming tray of an assortment of boiled meats (some recognizable, some indecipherable) served with its classic accompaniment, a tangy, herby salsa verde (green sauce). Linger for dessert and take in the passing parade of destination diners as they air kiss their way around the room.

I ordered the shirmp and the next morning...

I ordered the shrimp dish and the next morning I was very very lasted for days and ruined my whole vacation. When I told my Roman friends where & what I had eaten, they all said the same thing "you should never order seafood at Dal Bolognese, everybody knows that!". I would take this place right off your list unless you go there for a coffee or only pasta.
