Spending a night or two to find out if what i,ve been told is true
Any ristoranti suggestions for good food and cold Peroni ?????
Here’s an expanded Bologna recommendation from my answer to an earlier post – hope it whets your appetite:
Nicknamed ‘La Grassa’ (the fat), Bologna offers plenty of good food on every corner (tortellini in brodo, bollito/arrosto misto, tagliatelle or pappardelle al ragù (this being the original pasta ‘bolognese’ that is light years away from the homogenous minced (ground)-beef-and-tomato sauce that gained popularity beyond Italy over the last century.)
The city is easy to walk around, with great architecture and museums, so you’re never far from a pit-stop at a caffè, pasticceria or gelateria. The university is worth visiting for a tour of the astronomy faculty in the specola and a great view of the city – also possible from the Torre Asinelli, while the Teatro Anatomico (dissection theatre) at the 16th-c. Archiginnasio has some grisly carvings on show.
Ravenna, Modena and Parma are all easily accessible by train from Bologna, and being in the region of Emilia-Romagna, food is massively important, even by Italian standards – pasta, cheese, & cured meats are many & varied – the Tamburini deli, for one, has a wide range of produce.
A couple of places I enjoyed on my last visit were ‘Cantina Bentivoglio’ (good food, wine & microbrew beers at street level, jazz in the large cellar bar most evenings), ‘Da Bertino’ & ‘Ristorante Teresina’ (both family-run places with traditional menus). A reliable restaurant chain for a great meal & wine is ‘Pane, Vino e San Daniele’ (3 branches in Bologna; 20+ across northern Italy).
If there’s one destination where dining is less of a lottery and more about how many meals you can humanly fit into your itinerary, Bologna is it.
So if you like food, you’ll love Bologna!
