Alla Rampa, located on the lively Via Garibaldi, Venice’s widest street, was originally a trattoria
that is, however, most popular with locals as a traditional bacaro
. A Venetian bacaro
, which translates into ‘house of Bacchus
‘, the Roman God of wine, is a wine bar that often serves a variety of small dishes and snacks. Traditionally, there are no seats in a bacaro
, however, Alla Rampa does have a number of seats to offer if the bar is not too packed. Located on the ground floor of a beautiful 17th century palazzo, Alla Rampa is prone to flooding during the city’s regular Acqua Alta. This doesn’t deter locals though, who just enjoy their spritz wearing wellies.
