Caffè Rosso

Cafe in Dorsoduro

Affectionately known as Il Rosso, this red-fronted cafe has been at the centre of the bar scene on Campo Santa Margherita since the late 1800s. It's at its best in the early evening, when locals snap up the sunny piazza seating to sip on inexpensive spritzes. The espresso machine looks like a prop from a steam-punk fantasy.
