I'd read that this place was famous for its Ragu so dropped in for a jar. A largish jar costs €14 which is pretty steep but if you're in Bologna you need to take ragu home! Haven't eaten it yet but did enjoy browsing this...More

The folks in the shop were very kind explaining and letting us taste vinegars and parmesan. Lots of higher end preserves and other goodies to bring back home.
