Alla Vedova, literally translated as the widow’s place, is the ultimate Venetian bacaro, which has been run by the same family for over a century. The bar’s décor has been kept traditional, with rustic wooden tables, classic paintings decorating the walls and copper pans hanging from the ceiling. Alla Vedova does take reservations for the few tables it has, however, if you want to experience the bacaro in a truly authentic Venetian manner, stand up at the bar with the locals. Order a typical ombra de vin, a glass of red or white house wine, and immerse yourself in the local culture.
