Our Bologna food tour will escort you to the discovery of Bologna and its history through the classical dishes of Emilia-Romagna traditions. We will begin with a rich appetizer composed by local cured meats and warm, hand-baked bread or with a delicious platter of mixed pizza. Then we will have classic tortellini or tagliatelle, impossible to miss when in Bologna and a typical fried meat with cream, parmesan cheese and smoked ham.

  • Local cured meats and cheeses with hand-baked bread or platter of mixed pizza - the meal opens with a wide variety of local cured meats and cheeses or with a delicious platter of mixed gourmet pizza.
  • Bolognese tortellini - tortellini is a fresh pasta, stuffed with different types of meat and parmesan cheese. Usually they are served in meat broth, but our guests will have the opportunity to choose among different options for garnishing their tortellini!
  • Bolognese cotoletta - veal meat served with a rich sauce made with cream and parmesan cheese, and topped with smoked ham. The traditional recipe requires that the meat is fried, then sunk in meat broth. This is the trick which makes it so incredibly soft. Finally, it is briefly baked in the oven and served covered in melted cheese and ham.
  • Brazadela - a traditional cake prepared in a doughnut-shape. A very old preparation coming from peasants’ cuisine. Since its origins, the recipe has been passed from mothers to their kids, in order to preserve its simplicity and tastiness, for a delicate and unique taste.
  • Espresso coffee - it is the inevitable conclusion of every Italian proper meal. We offer it in a historical coffee shop, accompanied with artisanal whipped cream.
  • **Vegetarian option** - Our partner restaurants will offer you tasty alternatives, in the respect of the local food tradition.
