Non-drinker at a cichetti bar?

I'm a non-drinker but I love cichetti. On my next trip, this May, I'd like to go to some real cichetti bars, but I know that that these tasty Venetian tapas are usually served with wine. Can I order cichetti at bacari without ordering wine? If so, how do I do it? Thanks in advance for any guidance on this topic.

Yes no problem, you can drink water, and most other soft drinks. i often pop in over lunchtime and prefer water to wine..Nobody even blinks when I ask for water.

I sometimes ask at midday for a "limonsoda" to go with my cichetti especially if I have planned a fairly active afternoon.

A very pleasant non-alcoholic drink is "gingerino" which most bars sell.
