Prosecco is a festive drink, and Venetians seem ready to pop open a bottle for almost any occasion. Join the party at Al Prosecco, where the sparkling wine of the Veneto is featured. There’s plenty else besides prosecco, including biodynamic and organic wines, plus tempting platters of charcuterie, artisanal cheeses and panini. Sitting at one of the tables on the tree-shaded piazza, enjoying a spritz or a bottle of bubbly and watching the world go by—Venice doesn’t get much better than this.
Time Out tip: Prosecco is an anytime drink in Venice, so don’t be bashful about stopping at Al Prosecco for a mid-morning snack and sparkling wine break.
