Vini e Olii information
Forget the other bars that line Pigneto’s main pedestrianised drag, with their scattered outside tables and styled interiors. This is where the locals head, turning their noses up at newer interlopers. This traditional ‘wine and oil’ shop sells cheap beer and wine (bottles from €7.50), and you can snack on platefuls of antipasti and porchetta (pork roasted in herbs). It’s outside seating only.
