Ristorante Teresina is one of the more popular restaurants in Bologna and it was perfect for my last dinner there as well. It’s not so obvious though, as it’s just at the end of a small alley between two big buildings.
When in Parma, the parma ham on their pizzas are thrown on top like it’s free, like at Pizzeria Orfeo.
