The Best "Moody" Bacaro in Venice
Should I make a list of the best bacari in Venice, certainly Al Prosecco would be on top of it. First and foremost, it is located in the stunning campo San Giacomo dall'Orio, one of my dearest ones. Out of the most beaten tracks and populated by Venetians, the lively campo hosts one of the oldest churches in the city, boasting splendid paintings by Lorenzo Lotto and Paolo Veronese.
Shaded by tree areas, Al Prosecco offers typical cichetti prepared with the freshest ingredients: an excellent selection of cheese and charcuterie, delicious marinated and smoked fish and a wide range of biodynamic, regional and national wines.
While Davide and Eleonora take care of food and cafeteria, Stefano manages the cellar, recommending the best pairings. Due warning: as most of Venetian people, they might be very moody and, for instance, close on a rainy day! But if you are lucky enough, you'll enjoy the most authentic lunch in an idyllic setting.
San Giacomo dall'Orio is one of the few tree-filled campo in Venice historical center. Populated daily by many locals, it is refreshing in the summer days and lively in the winter.
