The story of Trattoria Da Me began before the war, in 1937. Nina and Danio were sister and brother and arrived in Bologna from the countryside of San Giovanni in Persiceto. Nina, together with her husband Orazio, opened a tavern where it was possible to taste Trebbiano and Bardolino, some noodles and fried eggs

Danio worked in the factory, but after the shift he served at the tavern tables. Then the war broke out. In that period there was often also Ada in the tavern. Danio had met her at Ducati, where he worked, but she was also good at making puff pastry. After a short time they got married, left the factory and together with Nina put the sign “Trattoria da Danio” on the entrance to the old tavern.
