In the same way that there are some restaurants in the UK that let you bring your own drink, there used to be a tradition in Bologna for various Osterie to allow you to bring your own food. Now there is only one of these establishments left – the Osteria del Sole, on a small street between vie Orefici and Pescherie Vecchie.
It’s only a couple of streets from Piazza Maggiore so you should be able to find it. I advise you do, even if you don’t take any food. The atmosphere is boisterous and everyone is having a good time.
It’s a great experience, but bear in mind it’s not the place for a quiet drink! They have a selection of wines both local and from France. We chose the Pignoletto from Cotre D’aibo which was a sparkling, peachy little number and hit the spot perfectly
