Duck into a small salumeria - specialist food stores which sell cured meats, cheeses and regional ingredients - your host knows exactly which ones make the best mortadella, a smooth textured pork sausage, salami and pecorino cheese. Osteria del Sole doesn’t serve food, but spread your mouthwatering, salumeria feast on one of their communal wooden tables and grab a zesty spritz from the bar. Visit a generations-old, specialty pasta store and sample a few varieties - it’s important to know your tortellini from your tortelloni! At the Mercato delle Erbe, visit one of the small market restaurants for a true taste of Bolognese tradition made with ‘zero-kilometer ingredients’, from silky tagliatelle alla ragù to freshly-baked focaccia.
Weave your way under porticoes and through the earthy-red streets of Centro Storico, the historic center and heart of Bologna. Peruse the Quadrilatero, a pocket of lanes between Piazza Maggiore and the Due Torri that’s been home to a gastronomic market since the Middle Ages, and stop by Osteria del Sole, the locals’ favorite, no-frills eatery that’s hidden nearby. Amble further west and sneak into a foodie’s paradise, the Mercato delle Erbe - far enough away from the main tourist trail to be free of selfie-stick wielding tourists but still within the historic walls of the center. Bliss out at gelateria Galleria 49 - still known locally by its old name, “Stefino” - a humble-looking kiosk that serves some of the creamiest gelato in town.
