Updated: 10 December 2017
Let’s be honest: Bologna is the perfect destination for meat-lovers. Why? The typical foods of the town are lasagne (a local pasta cooked in an oven and made with meat), piadina with ham, mortadella, tortellini (made with meat). But don’t panic; it is possible to find excellent vegetarian and vegan restaurants in a town that won’t disappoint you.
