We stopped here twice to sample their gorgeous cakes and left happy both times. While we saw others sitting outside we opted to take our desserts home and they were happy to wrap them up beautifully for us.

Don't be afraid of the location in the expensive area. Each dring comes with a small lunch for free! (Olives, potatochips, sandwiches).

Well situated on a quiet Piazza in central Bologna. Good choice of traditionnel sandwiches.Small but tasty. Friendly and efficient service. You pay for the location.

Excellently situated on the corner of the piazza, with lovely interior and friendly staff. We had fresh orange juice and it was lovely but at 5 euros a glass, a little expensive. But of course you are paying tourist prices.

We have been really enjoying our morning brace of cappuccinos at Zanarini. Good coffee, served well, and with a glass of frizzante water thrown into the deal. Stand at the bar and enjoy the true symphony of sounds that is a good Italian cafe.
