Passion and pride for the food of Bologna
What a lovely way to spend time in Bologna. There were only 2 couples on thee tour and we were all equally excited about the food and the experience. Mattia was a perfect guide. Knowledgeable, passionate and proud of the foods of the region. We started with breakfast and then the fascination of watching pasta being rolled out and then turned into the traditional tortellini. We then went on a walk around Bologna with lots of information and fun stories. Then tasting of meats, parmesan and Balsamic do Modena. A quick piece of pizza and then some traditional pastas and finishing with a gelato. Mattia shared his city with us which has meant the rest of our holiday was better.

A great few hours. The best part was sitting at the restaurant over some bottles of wine and chatting. And the vegetarian options were great.

A food tour in the Italian foodie capital of Bologna? No brainer!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This is the fourth food tour I have been on in different cities, and it is my favorite for two reasons. First, I like that it was full of information but not as full of actual food. The tour naturally moved from late breakfast to lunch with just a taste of each item along the way. I did not leave uncomfortably overfull which meant my first bite was as enjoyable as my last. Second, we didn’t have to race from one area of the city to the next. Bologna is so compact and full of great food everywhere, it felt that we were walking in a tangle of little circles because everything was in easy reach.

Our guide, Mattia was fantastic. His deep love of food and respect for its producers seemed to shine out of him. He lives in the same area as the tour, and you could feel the intimacy of his knowledge — his favorite pizza shop, his favorite gelato, his favorite place for…. And I certainly agreed with his taste! And when I say Bologna is full of great food everywhere, it is also full of mediocre food everywhere. His insider knowledge helped us raise the level of our meals for the rest of our stay. Plus he was simply super nice and enjoyable to be with.

I highly recommend this tour.

Fabulous food tour in Bologna
We absolutely loved our food tour in Bologna. We ate amazing food, watched tortellini being made, and learned so much history on our walks between food stops. The pasta lunch is some of the best food we ever had!

We had a small group from 3 different countries which was really interesting and fun. Totally recommend this tour!

Can't think of a better way to savor Bologna
Sep 2021
This was absolutely the best experience of our visit to the Emilia Romagna area. Being able to sample/experience so many different local specialties in a single morning, in such a small, friendly group was truly memorable. Mattia has curated this tour well; the pacing was perfect, never felt rushed, nor like we were waiting around, and at the end of it, felt we'd gotten to know Bologna and its unique character really well. Walking part was great, too, a good way to space out the tastings.
