Having waded through the University area, turn down the narrow Via delle Belle Arti for a genuine culinary experience of Bologna!
Trattoria Anna Maria is a classic Italian kitchen that produces some wonderful Bolognese dishes in a modest yet delicious way. What renders the atmosphere especially cosy is the proprietress Anna Maria who occasionally pops into the dining room to talk to clients as her friends and make sure they're enjoying their food and wine.
It is a great place for people watching, too. The clientele is mostly comprised of local families and university academics, enjoying high quality Bolognese "home cooking."
