This little café bar is located in Dorsoduro in Campo San Barnaba. Frequented by locals and tourists it serves really good coffee, wines and beers. We didn’t try the food but it looked good. Staff were friendly and there is outside seating with table service on the square so that you can sit and watch the world go by.

Nice setting outside of the Di Vinci museum. Great afternoon spot to rest your feet. Traditional Apple spritzers served as well other typical cocktails.

Stopped by in this little cafe by chance, and it was worth it. Situated in the lovely Campo San Barnaba (near Pugni bridge). Great espresso for 1€, friendly staff. When we were there (January) only local customers.

The two of us had coffees, panini and a shortbread as a quick lunch on the run, squeezed onto bar stools. Very tasty, great coffee, very reasonable prices - 8.60 euros the lot.

It is a nice little spot for an afternoon Spritz or a morning, or anytime, coffee. There are some sweet rolls in the morning and snacks in the afternoon. Prices are fair and service is good.

As a family of 5 we stopped here a few times in October 2016. Its not a late night venue - these are few and far between - but serves excellent beverages of all descriptions from early morning til mid evening. Check out some of the art work there - interesting !!

All the locals drink here so it must be good. Very good choice of wines and good service. If you are in this area it is a good place to stop.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
