Neighborhood: San Marco
Description: The New frontier of the Wine Tasting. A top level selection of the most refined Italian red wines. 16 different bottles at your disposal. Wine by the glass for a personalized Wine Tasting. Rechargeable Wine Card. Open daily from 12.00 Am to 12.00 pm. This sophisticated and elegant venue, conceived and designed according to a new concept of hospitality and intimacy, is not only a wine bar, it is a unique corner of Venice where special and typical "cicchetti" (Venetian appetizers) can be enjoyed and complemented by an exclusive wine list. It is the only place in Venice with a very interesting and innovative "Enoround" (Enomatic Wine Serving System). The Wine Bar is ideal not only for wine tasting but also for for pleasant chats, quick brunches, sipping cocktails late at night after the Theatre, cinema or a stroll through the narrow alleys and little squares of Venice.

“Upbeat!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great upbeat atmosphere. Though most places in Venice offer very close quarters (tables packed tightly), because of the lighting and table arrangements in this place, my husband and I felt a sense of privacy. The wine was "ok". Ambiance was great!

“Warm welcome, Nice variety, modern and relaxing”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

It's nice to find an oasis of calm in the bars of Venice. Somewhere you can sit down, check out your photos - Use the free wifi, and enjoy prosecco for 3 euros a glass. This place also introduced me to the Aperol Spritz.

The wine goes from cheap to expensive - You make of it what you wish. We really enjoyed it, it was a nice 'slow down-get off your feet' rest.

“Ridiculously expensive”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

If you've got a fat wallet fine - if not avoid. A very small glass of wine (50ml) cost €6. Otherwise, the bar itself is nice enough and the hotel to which it is attached was otherwise very good and not over-priced.

“Rip off - do not go to this bar”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We visited this bar during "happy hour". The idea was that you could take whatever you wanted from a cold buffet for free, only having to pay for your drinks. There was an automated wine dispenser just inside the door with prices clearly marked - many of which were 2.50 and 3.50 Euros. We thought we had ordered two small glasses of Chianti at 3.50 Euros each. The waitress showed us to our table and brought over a couple of glasses of wine, which to be fair tasted pretty good. We tasted the buffet, which was also pretty good. When it came to paying the bill however, we discovered that each glass of wine was actually 10.00 Euros each. I raised this with the waitress and her response was "I told you that the Chianti was 10 Euros" - she made no attempt to rectify the "mistake" and/or showed no remorse for ripping us off. Mmmm - it's a good job we decided to leave when we did rather than having a top-up!

“Good food. Good wine.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had dinner here this evening & the only complaint is that the lasagna was half hot & half room temperature. But my husband would not say anything to Natalia. We had a selection of tapas, a cod fish pate, yummy, sardines with onions, grilled vegetables with olive oil, and prosciutto on a bread roll. For the main course, penne pasta in a spicy tomato sauce & the lasagna, both good portions. The food was tasty. We had a few glasses of wine with our meals & were quite happy. Natalia was very helpful & patient with me as I don't eat any meats or cheese. It is true, the decor & music were outdated, but it didn't bother us. We would eat there again.
