Enoteca Al Volto
Located just a few minutes stroll from the Rialto Bridge, Al Volto is Venice
’s oldest wine bar and home to an impressive collection that is 1,000 bottles long. The list includes Italian and international wines, but not all are offered at the same time—the winelist rotates so that different selections are available each day. If you aren’t sure what to order, the staff is very knowledgable. Beyond the wine, the atmosphere is jovial and the vibe is cozy with wood-paneled walls and every bit of the ceiling plastered with wine labels. If you’re hungry, the adjoining restaurant cooks up delicious traditional Venetian lagoon fare. The homemade pastas are excellent—keep it simple and try the spaghetti with clams and olive oil.
