Spritz & Cicchetti

Al Mercà

This is a very small bacaro in Rialto market. In fact, it is no more than a food counter with the displays of cicchetti and wines by the glass.  Located in Campo Cesare Battisti in the Rialto market area, it is easily recognised by its awning with the name “Al Mercà” on it. It is particularly popular on Saturday mornings.  Huge selection of wines by the glass and, of course, cichetti.  There are no tables and chairs – you simply find somewhere in the square.
