Welcome to our bacaro!

Welcome to our bacaro, here, in Calle delle Spade, near the S. Matteo di Rialto church.

You can easily spot the old sign which was already mentioned by Giuseppe Tassini who, in 1448, refers to “Carle de Zuane, hosto all’insegna delle Spade”, in his book Curiosità veneziane, ovvero origini delle denominazioni stradali. In 1566 Marin Sanudo specifies: “The Osteria delle do Spade, located in S. Matteo and with two subordinate stores, belonged at the time to the Foscari family and was rented to a host called Battista”.

Between cichetto and cichetto, sipping an ombra of good wine, you will have the opportunity to get to know an ancient story with us: ours and Venice’s.

Our customers

Each of our customers has a history, whether adventurous or plain, a more or less satisfying life, a more or less gratifying job, a hidden or pursued passion. But we do not know anything about that.

What we know, however, is that they all share the same desire to spend a pleasant and tasty time with their family, friends, colleagues, lovers, travel mates of a brief journey or of a lifetime, or even on their own, to indulge in a little break before getting back to reality.

For each of our clients, regular or occasional, the doors of our osteria are always open. They will find the comfort of a glass of good wine, a tasty dish, a warm welcome and a smile.
