About
This tour will provide you with an experience above and beyond tasting some of the best Italian food in places where locals enjoy dining. A combination of flavorful ingredients, local produce, old-world knowledge and a centuries-old passion for food is why Bologna is the country's culinary capital. As a private tour, everything works around you! Our start times are much more easy going, dates can open up. It's a much more intimate and cozy experience. No need to shout over other tourists, you will have every question answered, and leave feeling like a native yourself!

Thank you Isadora for the outstanding Secret Food Tour of Bologna that you provided. It was the highlight of the two weeks that my two adult daughters and I spent in Italy. You provided not only a wealth of information on the unique cuisine of Bologna, but you also pointed out so many interesting things about Bolognese history and culture. I would highly recommend your tour (and already have) to anyone interested in learning about the different neighborhoods of Bologna, the foods and the history of the area.

We had a great time with our guide Isadora. She is a local and had a very good knowledge and network of local places to go to. One of our favourite experiences was the shop of the people making the local tortellini. How they are so fast and exact was amazing. Our second favourite was the Osteria "Vino"... I'll leave the title like that as it is a secret. Isadora also was so friendly and walking with her felt like a friend showing you around. A few of our friends have seen photos and I have already recommended the tour and to request her. She also recommended a restaurant for fresh seafood and it was also fantastic. Looking forward to revisit Bologna!

Isadora was well informed, had great communication skills, spoke excellent English and showed us so many delicious foods to try. I only book with Secret Food Tours when I travel and I am consistently impressed.

If getting the vegetarian option, be sure to confirm in advance. A miscommunication did result in some meat being offered during our tour.
