A Bolognese institution, the "Parrot" is housed in a medieval building near the city's two leaning towers. The comfortable but rather demode restaurant is a favorite of the rich and famous, whose signed photos line the walls. There's nothing nouvelle about the cuisine, but the kitchen here can be relied on to serve up impeccable tortellini, filling lasagna verde, and—a house specialty—turkey breasts baked in white wine, Parmesan, and truffles. A well-stocked wine cellar features some 250 labels.
