Lunch is served from 12pm at the food stall and includes main courses of the Bolognese tradition, made with fresh pasta, and mixed grill of freshly-processed meat.


At 2pm is possible to attend to the preparation of ciccioli (pig fat) and coppa (cold cut made from the dry-cured neck muscle of pork). During the afternoon music and snack made of "crescentine" (fried leavened dough) with still lukewarm coppa.

The visit in San Gabriele could be an occasion, if the weather is nice, to take a walk along the riverside of the Reno river. At Passo Segni, 3 km further the place where Savena canal flows into Reno, one can pass the "Bailey bridge", made of iron with abutments in stone and cement. The bridge dates back after the Second World War and was designed by Province of Bologna to be inaugurated in 1950. The recent renovation has kept the original wooden planking level.
