Bologna's best takeaway

Bologna best takeaway 1 orig
I'm not a huge fan of takeaway, partially because I love cooking and also because in Italy it's usually synonymous of junk or low quality food. But sometimes that's not true and in Bologna you can find a few great places that bring you home a great dinner. These are my best choices.


Opened just a week ago, it's the first 'ethic pizza' in town: all the ingredients are taken from mafia's confiscated lands or from companies that are fighting against the clans.
It's not only ethic but also a real Neapolitan pizza, one of the best I've tried in Bologna.
Margherita 4€ plus delivery.

O' Fiore Mio
One of the best pizza of Bologna and a stop during our food tours in Bologna, also delivers pizza in the city centre. You can order the 'roman style' or the classic 'Napoli'. A lot of different toppings, the minimum amount for the order is 15€.

Piazza Malpighi, 8, 40123
Tel. 051 040 2308

Classic take-away pizza under Via Saragozza portico. The location is small but cozy, with movie posters on the walls. Pizza is thinner than the other but easy to digest. They also sell local craft beer of Vecchia Orsa.
Margherita 4€ plus delivery.

My favourite greek restaurant in town also offers take away (but not home delivery). Pita, meat stews with artichokes and olives or with ouzo, octopus with chickpea or a simple greek salad.

The restaurant itself is too modern and noisy, then it's perfect to get home delivery sushi from zushi. Different qualities of well-made maki, sushi and sashimi.
Minimum order 15€ for lunch, 30€ for dinner plus 3€ delivery.
