Bologna traditional cuisine meets every taste
In Bologna, the love for cuisine and fine dining that helped create an incomparable fine wine and food tradition. Fresh pasta, meat dishes and traditional products are the pillars of a substantial and opulent cuisine which, over the years, led to the moniker "Bologna the fat one" being given to the city.
The happy hour is perceived like a true ritual and is always paired with the typical crescentine, flour dough fried in lard, filled with regional cold cuts, such as the sinful mortadella.
For lunch or dinner, on the other hand, you should taste the traditional tortellini, filled with meat or prosciutto and served in hot broth. As a first course, we also suggest the bolognese lasagna or tagliatelle, both with delicious bolognese ragout or the typical passatelli. In Bologna, you will be spoiled for choice!
As a second course, don't miss the chance to try the bolognese cutlet, with prosciutto and cheese or the bolognese meatballs, served hot and fried.
It is therefore essential to stop at one of the ancient taverns in the centre: a tribute to good Bolognese cuisine. Meals must be tasted with a glass of wine from Bologna's hills, such as the famous Pignoletto.
