Rating: Big menu, great food
We continue our sojourn across Emilia-Romagna. It was a rainy day in Bologna, and we stopped for lunch in this Trattoria in the old town, just east of the pair of leaning towers. It was selected by the intuitive method, glancing inside to see if it felt right.
All sorts of antipasti are stored in a number of display cases and on some tables at the front.
And a bit of roast rabbit on a plate with potatoes!
The tables at the front.
A delicious course of marinated salmon carpacio with olive oil and red peppercorns.
A ricotta and fig torte, declared to be very tasty.
Classic Tagliatelle Bolognese!
Parpadelle with boar ragu. This was an amazing pasta.
Stricchetti with sausage and peas in a pink sauce. Very tasty, although when ordering it I expected a white sauce.
Roast rabbit (taken from the plate above) in a balsamic sauce.
The condiments for the salad.
The usual mixed salad.
This pasta must have been awful!
And to wake up, some more expresso.
This random pick turned out extremely well. The food was fantastic, and the other customers only local businessmen.
