(Or maybe that should be ‘the belly’?) It was busy every day and evening we were there and there is loads of choice for places for food. Very pretty lanes too and the fact that it is all pedestrianised made it lovely to wander round.

If you eating, buying or just gazing at amazing food then you have to spend some time wandering the narrow streets of this area.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy a coffee, snack or meal and loads of places to buy food for taking away and eating in one of the many piazzas or parks nearby. A bit touristy of course but mainly supported by locals

Quadrilatero is a quadrangular shaped district, hence the name, of central Bologna. Its borders are Via Farina, Via Castiglione, Via Rizzoli and Via dell'Archiginnasio. In its NE corner are the Two Towers and its western border is Piazza Maggiore, It is home to an abundance of restaurants, cafés and shops. It's a pleasant district to wander through. It's not a large area and measures approximately 150 by 200 metres in size, but has some very good places to eat and sit and relax.

I had my best meals right here, in Quadrilatero. Salumeria Simoni, and the small restaurants in this tiny but crowded area. Seriously, the Quadrilatero is the quintessence of what we (tourists) perceive of Bologna. It's really quaint and lively, loud, and this is where you'll find everything Bologna is famous for.

This is somewhat the foodie area of Bologna along with some very Exclusive shops and Jewelers. The food itself was very interesting to see. We did stop at one for dinner Simoni which is a very old meat store.

The Quadrilatero is a neighborhood in Bologna where merchants have been doing business since the middle ages.
There are all sorts of merchants there now and some amazing fresh produce!
The area is near Piazza Maggiore and heads in the direction of the two towers.
It is a must see while in Bologna.
We visited it while on a segway tour with Bolognaway Segway.

Enjoy the buzzing environment of pleople eating a light bite before lunch, or lunch itself, while admiring the goods on the shops to eventually sit down in any of the places to enjoy a glass of wine and some gorgeous italian food.

The true spirit of Bologna can be felt here in Quadrilatero.This is the commercial heart of the old town center, overflowing with goods on the stands that are scattered along via Pescherie and via Drapperie, and full of noisy sellers and customers going by. To the east of Piazza Maggiore, the grid of streets around Via Clavature (Street of Locksmiths) sits on what was once Roman Bologna. Known as the Quadrilatero, this compact district is a great place for a wander with its market stalls, happening cafes and lavishly stocked gourmet delis. Nowadays the Quadrilatero is the historical center area bounded by piazza Maggiore, via Rizzoli, piazza della Mercanzia, via Castiglione, via Farini, piazza Galvani and via dell’Archiginnasio. Leaving behind us the elegant piazza Maggiore, the path leads to the narrow and odorous alleys of the old medieval market with the characteristic “holes”. Jewelers, butchers, delicatessens, greengrocer’s, bakeries, shops with traditional cuisine and craft activities and other specialized trades are located in these streets. Most of these shops have preserved the historic architecture and furnishing, thus making them genuine artistic treasures.
