High quality from starters to dessert, still maintaining the taste of traditional food of the region. I would strongly suggest not to miss the starters and pasta it now the different flavors (tortellini, tagliatelle, lasagne, etc.). Suitable for families as well as for young groups. Easy to reach from Bologna and close to A1 exit.
