Drogheria Mascari

Food & Drinks in San Polo & Santa Croce

Ziggurats of cayenne, leaning towers of star anise and chorus lines of olive oils draw awestruck foodies to Mascari’s windows. Indoors, chefs clutch truffle jars like holy relics, kids ogle candy in copper-lidded jars and dazed gourmands confront 50 different aromatic honeys. For small-production Italian vino – including Veneto cult producers like Giuseppe Quintarelli – don’t miss the backroom cantina.
