Tel: 051 234 726's insider take:

If you're food shopping, don't miss Tamburini, a gourmet deli and shrine to Bologna's full-on local cuisine. This spot has pretty much all the Italian salumi you could possibly want, from humble mortadella to prized culatello di Zibello. There are cheeses, too (including huge wheels of Parmesan); moist, aromatic torta di riso cake; and a vast selection of fine wines. At the back of the shop, a self-service lunchtime bistro called VeloCibo occupies the former salumeria workshop, where pigs were transformed into tasty treats—if you glance up, you can still see the butchers' hooks on their iron rails.
