Central seating area surrounded by bars and food stalls. Lovely idea, well executed and some lovely food and drink to be had. But for such a large space to have just one toilet is mad!

If you like food to eat or to look at this is a great place in Bologna. A city famous for its meat ragu. And claiming responsibility for inventing Mortadella. We ate well here but mainly enjoyed looking at the food. Great for tourists

As a woman often traveling alone in Bologna, I love Mercato di Mezzo. It is a high quality, artisanal food court on the wonderfully central Via Clavature. There is also a pizzeria/restaurant on the second floor that is pretty good: Pomodoro Rosso. There are common...More

Perhaps this was once a food market in its own right but these days it is a collection of shops with prepared food, also some quite nice bars for an aperitif or three.
