Osteria del Sole3
Why locals love it
Osteria del Sole is a very ancient tavern (opened in 1465) that has kept unchanged its simple and popular style. For this reason, it's a point of reference in Bologna: you can sit at the table with strangers, sharing food (bought in outdoors shops) and chatting in front of a glass of wine.
Why you should visit it
In this inn you can feel the atmosphere of Bologna in 50s. You can drink local wines (Pignoletto, Lambrusco, Cabernet) and you can meet the locals (common people but also artists, singers, writers). And if you want to eat something you can go outside and buy ham and "crescenta" in stores
Don't be shy: sit at the table with the locals, maybe let them teach you a few words in bolognese dialect
