“Lucky and Well-Priced Lunch Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

My husband and I were wandering the streets of Ravenna on Epiphany, hoping to find something open on a holiday and wandered into this place. Great find! The Emilia-Romagna region is famous for its piadina (think Italian quesadilla with a thick, soft flour tortilla and delicious, fresh fillings). For lunch, we took two piadina: one with squaquerone e fichi caramellati (soft white local Romagna cheese with caramelized figs, EUR 4.5) and one with squaquerone e prosciutto cotto (soft white cheese with ham, EUR 4.5). The “tortilla” was soft and fluffy (warning: it is made with strutto, aka lard, hence the amazing texture) and they were cooked well so the fillings were warm and gooey. The piadine were so amazing we took two enclosed versions (crescione) to eat later in the car: one with salsiccia, patate e scamorza affumicata (sausage, potatoes, and smoked cheese, EUR 4), the other with funghi, mozzarella e pomodoro (mushrooms, cheese, and tomato EUR 3.5). Both delicious though I would warn that any enclosed item should probably not have tomato because it tends to be a little wet, but other than that, delicious. If you wanted to make a sit-down lunch, it would probably run EUR 12-15 if you add in drinks. A great, pocket-book friendly option.
