Next to nobody knows about all the other truffle-towns in Italy, one of them is Brisighella, a beautiful small town in the mountains, just 30 min. from Bologna. During the season you get black and white truffle, fresh to take away, sliced in oil and canned or 10 g of thin slices on top of your Tagliatelle. These are the places, where Italians go for truffle, it´s not fancy, but authentic and the truffle-hunters might sit at the table beside you. The truffle festival  in November is fabulous!
