Taverna da Baffo


in San Polo & Santa Croce

This osteria, named for Casanova’s licentious poet pal Giorgio Baffo, is actually a converted chapel stripped to its naked brick walls. With strong spritz, draught beer and tasty house wines, there may be impromptu poetry from the campo crowd by night's end. Arrive early at summer happy hours to claim outdoor tables, bruschetta orders and the bartender’s attention.
