Lunch at Scaccomatto

When we were tired and hungry after our morning walk, so we headed to an area we had never seen before: Porta San Vitale. This seems to be a predominately Indian/Pakistani neighborhood, with Indian restaurants and residents. We discovered a whole new ethnic area of Bologna. We stopped for a coke until our 1:30 lunch reservation at Scaccomatto (via Broccaindosso 63b).

Diana emailed me a recommendation for Scaccomatto from a friend of hers in Bologna. Our meal there ended up being one of our favorites.

We began by sharing “Acqua e sale”, a bowl of salted water with herbs, thick bread, a poached egg topped with pecorino. It was real comfort food on a chilly day.

I had a delicious pork loin stuffed with pancetta, mushrooms and black truffles.

Brad really enjoyed his baby goat rolotini with potatoes.

Desert was amazing! Chocolate budino with caramel liquore and a scoop of coffee granita.

We lingered over our coffee, and began talking about our next trip to Bologna! Then we took a taxi back to the hotel, and had a nice nap.
