So I've read multiple times that some of the best food in the world is to be found in Bologna. We are making a stop in Bologna in our tour of Northern Italy specifically to eat. Now normally we are very very low budget travelers subsisting on street food and grocery store picnics, but really, if something is to be called the best food in the world...well I'll have to be the judge of that!
So please recommend a place (hopefully not to pricey) for us to try this fabulous food. Extra points for character and not fancy.
Oh, and we'll also be visiting Venice, Padua, Ferrera, Mantua and Milan, so if you know of cheapo eats there or street food finds please advise as well.
