Fodor's Review

Locals stream into this friendly wine bar (bacaro) to explore wines from the region—or from anywhere in the county for that matter. They accompany a carefully chosen selection of meats, cheeses, and other food from small, artisanal producers, used in tasty panini like the porchetta romane verdure (roast pork with greens). Proprietors Davide and Stefano preside over a young, friendly staff who reel off the day's specials with ease. There are a few tables

in the intimate back room, and when the weather cooperates you can sit outdoors on the lively campo, watching the Venetian world go by. It's open 9 to 9, and later if the mood strikes. Mostly a favorite for lunch, it's also a special place for an early light dinner.

Our First Stop in Venice

The clerk at our hotel recommended Al Prosecco for a late afternoon snack when we arrived in Venice. It is in a beautiful piazza and is very local. We only had a snack so I can't really comment on the food, but the wine was perfect!

Arty and very italian

This is an excellent contemplative lunch-spot. Good people-watching and not a tourist in site. Not sure if it would do for dinner as the food was mostly salads, cheeses and cold meats. The service was a little slow, but I think its that kind of place - slow food and good quality. Prices were also a little high (¬15-20 for a cold meat salad) but very tasty and large portions. The crowd was posh-bohemian and all Italian.
