Ai Barbacani – Restaurant in Venice

Tucked away in the medieval heart of Venice, still very close to San Marco, the Ristorante Ai Barbacani is situated off a quiet alleyway in a breathtaking 700 year old building. It’s been a vibrant boutique eatery for more than 60 years, serving traditional venetian dishes in an atmospheric setting.

The Restaurant was an ancient coal storage. Its wooden beams still bear the traces of its former use and give it a magical and romantic atmosphere, ideal for dining by candlelight, with boats passing along the canal in the background, away from the more beaten tourist tracks.

The cuisine is traditional Veneto style and mostly fish-based but there are a number of other choices for non-fish eaters and vegetarians menus.

Enjoy an aperitif of Prosecco at your arrival.

What people say about us

Posto magico trovato passeggiando in una calle di Venezia!
Locale carino e caratteristico.
Ottimo cibo della tradizione veneziana preparato e servito da personale professionale e gentile.
Che dire, una bellissima scoperta!
Ci ritornerò.

Una chicca in centro a Venezia in un vicolo laterale dal sapore gorico. Location perfetta che si affaccia su un piccolo canale con transito di gondole incluso. Cibo curato, come il servizio, impeccabile! Prezzi assolutamente competitivi. Conviene prenotare… soprattutto se volete sedervi sul terrazzino dirimpetto al canale.
