Beyond the wonderful cultural heritage and landscape Ravenna is a city full of ancient culinary specialties and welcoming hospitality.
Soups and broth occupy a prominent position in the local menu: tagliatelle, lasagne, strozzapreti with the traditional meat sauce; golden coloured passatelli, fragrant of parmesan and nutmeg; cappelletti exquisitely stuffed with cheese, with meat sauce or broth. All pasta dishes of Romagna menu are made with homemade pasta, and therefore are famous and much requested. Further traditional dishes are pork meat, mainly grilled on wood embers, often accompanied by the "oil dip" (a mixture of raw and fresh vegetables, to dip in salt and oil).
In coastal towns (but in the city too) you can taste the many varieties of fish and shellfish of the Adriatic sea, as the “risotto alla marinara”, tagliolini with fresh seafood and spaghetti with clam sauce, before tasty grilled dishes.
A warm and fragrant Piadina is served with both fish and meat dishes, often accompanied by the unforgettable soft cheese "squaquerone".
Local wines, such as Sangiovese, Trebbiano and Pagadebit, perfectly martch our food tradition, accompanied by the genuine and traditional sweets, as buiscuits, tortelli stuffed with jam, cakes and pies, perfect to be dipped in sweet wines like the whine Albana, or as the red Cagnina.
