Located only a few minutes away from the beautiful Rialto Bridge, this is the oldest wine bar in Venice well, it doesn’t always have to be a cocktail, does it? The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable, with wine labels playfully plastered across the bar’s ancient original wooden walls and ceiling. The clientele is a mix of connoisseurs and enthusiastic amateurs, both local and visitors, attracted by the 1000 Italian and foreign wines that are served on rotation. But if this amount of choice sounds bewildering, fear not advice from the friendly and knowledgeable staff on an ever-changing daily selection means you can sample different wines each time you visit. And it isn’t just about the alcohol here. The adjoining restaurant offers a menu based on traditional lagoon cuisine with a modern twist, with seasonal ingredients sourced from the nearby Rialto market. The fare is simple and great, from homemade pasta and gluttonous gnocchi to clams in garlic oil with spaghetti and a rich variety of fish from the Adriatic Sea. To stave off your hunger while waiting for your food to arrive, try the ten types of cicheti (Venetian bar snacks) on offer they’re all delicious. With its famously wide choice of wine, delicious food and convivial atmosphere, Al Volto wears its age lightly, bubbling over with hospitality. If you visit, you won’t be disappointed.

Martini: know your Dry from your Dirty The Martini is to drinking what the two-step is to dance: great its own but also a solid base with which to experiment. Any discerning drinker worth their salt (or olive brine) should have at least a passing acquaintance with it. The bartender’s lips may say she’s not judging you for not knowing your dry from your dirty, but her eyes tell a different story.
