    We had a tagliere with incredible tasty salami, mortadella, cheese, cream of parmigiano (I loved that), fine bread and a good white wine for lunch. Everything was absoluteyl fresh and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. You can chose between different sizes - we took the "Royal" version, which is more than enough for two people.

    This is a famous chocolatier with a long history in Bologna dating back to 1796. You can visit their shop on Via de' Carbonesi. They are open from 9am to 1.30pm and again from 3pm to 7.30pm daily and offer a range of beautifully packaged and arranged chocolate bars and products. Even if you are not interested in purchasing, it is worth quick look inside Majani.

    During our recent visit, we purchased dark chocolate bars to enjoy back home along with some orangettes (candied orange) which we nibbled on while exploring the city centre. They tasted great, very much worthy of return visits to purchase more. We found staff to be very friendly and happy to explain various chocolates we were interested in purchasing. They offer to gift wrap your purchases if you like.

    This is a very sweet little printing shop with beautiful original etchings. There are lots of designs of Bologna so it's a great place for a unique souvenir or gift - they have little notebooks, calendars, cards, postcards and bigger prints too. The owner was very friendly and spoke good English and I heard her have a go at Spanish too. I recommend it if you're in Bologna, it's just in the Jewish Ghetto area.

    This is a high quality salumeria located along Via Guglielmo that is open from 8.30am to 7pm (closed on Sundays). The shop has a beautiful layout of meats, cheeses, prepared dishes that you can take home to heat up and prepare.

    We found staff to be warm and friendly as well, picking up a couple of side veg items along with a lasagna verde dish that we baked in our apartment and enjoyed later in the evening. Everything from Bruno e Franco was very good. Would be happy to pick up food from here again the next time we stay in Bologna.

    This little shop is very charming and focuses on, you guessed it, tortellini. The shop owner is a super nice man who enjoys to get to know his clients and takes pride in his work and his product. I recommend getting the fresh tortellini, while a little more expensive, they are sublime. We made them as per instructions in a simple brodo, cooked for 2 minutes, EXCELLENT!

    The owner lacks a little patient if the customer is not Italian. Otherwise , the gelato tastes great, creamy and full of flavor

    Always open, every day until late, and super competent staff.
    No better service. At least, across the towns I've been visiting in my traveling experience.

    Fantastic selection of chocolate, oil, vinegar, spirits and more. The home ware store next door has more brushes than you’d think possible plus plenty of useful nick knacks.
