Upon arrival, my partner approached the host at the till to ask whether we should order food at the table or there. The host very impatiently almost shouted at him as my partner couldn’t see from there where he wanted to sit. After lunch, my...partner went back to the till to pay and the host asked for the table number, which we had not been given. My partner said so and while pointing at the table for ease the host whispered “you really don’t get it...” as if he was stupid or something! My partner quite annoyed asked him to repeat but the host didn’t show any regret for insulting him, furthermore he continued arguing with him. He couldn’t even listen that we were not given a table number by his staff...! This is a very silly situation to experience and wouldn’t even be worth a mention however this is something you would never expect as a customer so we thought we would mention it here to avoid any similar experience to others... take note of your table number if you still want to go there! :-)More

Fabulous fresh pizza in this tucked away undercover market. Cheap and cheerful, definitely worth a visit.

Pizza Forno is wonderful very tasty and the price is friendly (4 slices of pizza and a mini sandwich costed us 10 euros) One espresso from Al Bar was 1.1 euros There was a terrible guy from the staff that started shouting at us in...Italian and insisted we leave our table cause we also bought food from across the way. We explained him that we did not knew this rule as this place is basically a food market so from our experience with these places you can eat anywhere. He continued shouting in English for another good couple of seconds, instead of calmly explaining the situation. Hence my review is as poor as possible!More

We had seen this market on TV when Rick Stein visited so sought it out and are glad we did. Interesting menu, friendly helpful waiters and great food. Hard to believe you are in a market with this standard of food. We dined there twice...in the week that we were there. First night was bustling with a very large party that arrived shortly after us (thank goodness) but seems to be busy most of the time. Try the local white wine, delicious.More

The best food we had in Bologna was not at the most expensive restaurant we ate at, but rather in this moderately priced market stall. Everything was nicely done, with an eye to quality.

We had read reviews of the Mercato delle Erbe, and were ready for lunch so once we found it we were attracted to the table laid out for service. It only later became apparent that there were other tables where you can sit having used...the other outlets in the food court area. To an extent we were confused and felt that we had been trapped by Altro?. The service was fine, the chicken salad excellent, and the pasta dishes were good quality. However tha prices are high here compared to what you may find elsewhere, but Bologna Centre is expensive compared to other towns in the region.More

Wow! In a word - Delicious! Had the tagliatelle with ragu and I was blown away. I didn’t expect it to be so good in a good/street market place. Reasonably priced dishes. The pasta was about €11. Give it a go for lunch, you won’t...be disappointed! Sauvignon Blanc wine was nice, around €4.50 (or 15 for a bottle). If I revisit Bologna I’d happily returnMore

This is one of the food areas in the Mercato delle Erbe. Food areas to sit and just have an aperitivo, slices of delicious pizza or sit in the restaurant area and eat an amazing meal. The atmosphere is incredible, feels like all Bologna is...here just enjoying life! Perfect place to experience Bologna with the locals!!More

Dinner started well, with good service and food, but I have no idea what happened next. The service just completely disintegrated - I wonder if there were problems between the staff that night? We were literally abandoned, and even struggled to pay (shouldn't have bothered)....Annoyingly, when I checked my receipt again I had been charged for wine that I had asked for but never received. We went to the fish restaurant in the same market another night and it was a million times better.More

We managed to get a table during the busy lunch service with lots of local business people queuing for tables. The service was quick and efficient and the food was really delicious; a great choice for a mid-week lunch. Prices were moderate and this is...clearly a very popular choice with local diners.More
