Dal Bolognese Review

The darling of the media, film, and fashion communities, this classic restaurant on Piazza del Popolo is not only an "in-crowd" dinner destination but makes a convenient shopping-spree lunch spot. As the name promises, the cooking adheres to the hearty tradition of Bologna. Start with a plate of sweet prosciutto di Parma with melon, then move on to the traditional egg pastas of Emilia-Romagna. Second plates include the famous Bolognese 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). During dessert, take in the passing parade of your fellow diners—they love to meet and greet with excessive air kisses.

    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.
