Fantastic apertivo steps from Piazza Maggiore. While the boards of mortdalla, cheeses and other yummy treats are not complimentary (as they are in Misano, where I live), they are huge and delicious. Don’t be intimidated by the crowd, push your way inside (where there is...More

Vecchia Malga is the place to go for those that seek a meal of indulgence. As a lover of cold meats, I thoroughly enjoyed the customised platter consisting of salami, prosciutto, pancetta, buffalo mozzarella and mortadella. The texture of the mortadella melted in my mouth...More

Food heaven here. Sensational cold cuts, especially pancetta and mortadella, burratta, etc. The tortellini and lasagna were excellent. Also excellent wine list. The best food and wine experience in Bologna.

Found this fabulous establishment on the food market street in Bologna. We sat outside and enjoyed a shared platter of delicious cold meats and a couple of glasses of red wine. Great atmosphere and very authentic. Just loved it. Good service.

I really loved this friendly place where the pours are generous and the charcuterie boards are fresh and delicious. It's at an alley, perfect to people watch and relax. They allowed you to savor the incredible food without rushing you in any way.

This is where came in for our antipasti on our walking tour and it said not disappoint. The meats and cheeses were so fresh and delicious. They also served us a glass of wine to go with the meal.
