A great way to try some food that you might not find otherwise. Federico also gave some great restaurant recommendations for the rest of our time in Bologna!

We loved our tour with Frederico, we went to places we would never of found ourselves and tasted local dishes we never would’ve known about. Definitely recommend x

Federico is very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations for wine and food both in Bologna and in other regions we were traveling to in Italy. Federico went above and beyond and also made a reservation for us at a great restaurant the night before our excursion. The experience is worth it even if only for the amount of knowledge he shares. The only thing I feel the need to mention is that the price of the food is not included in your airbnb booking, however, it’s still greatly discounted from what you would pay going to these places on your own.

This was a fun experience going to a restaurant that we would not have know of otherwise, and being introduced to a great Gelateria. Federico was a great host. We had a larger group so the tour was the alternative tour, not the market place. We went to a local Osteria and had a three course meal followed by going to a Gelateria. People would not know this unless they look at his tour description outside of Airbnb. The meal was very nice, an incredible meat and cheese board, crostini, and pasta with local sausage ragu. Federico ordered wine and that kept coming through out the meal. He discussed where he and his wife, (a sommelier not with the tour) like to get their Italian wine and ordered two bottles from that region. They were very nice. This was all followed with a caffe and a shot of limoncello. We then went to one of the best Gelateria’s in town. Throughout the afternoon Federico was attentive and answered may questions us guests had. It was also nice to meet the others in the group and have time at the table to discuss their experiences. Though I still want to learn more of the market system here in Bologna, this was an experience well worth it and Federico went above and beyond what I expected in a tour guide. We had tickets to the opera the night before and he recommended a restaurant close to the opera, then gave us other ideas for our month here in Bologna. Thank you Federico.

Fred was very pleasant and a good host. As it was raining (and a public holiday) we went to a local osteria rather than around the market. We missed the opportunity to visit different food stalls (Fred let us know the tour would be different, but it would be helpful to know what the plan would be). The cost felt expensive as we paid €35 for the tour and an additional €40 for the food/drink pp. The food was ok (the recommendations weren't any different to what we could have chosen), but the wine choices were excellent. I'd definitely do one of Fred's other courses (e.g. food cooking) but would give this one a miss.

Very pleasant experience, got off the beaten path, away from the tourists. Was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, food and wine.
