After a few days in Italy you may feel like you’ve enjoyed enough pasta and wine for a lifetime. Or maybe you’re just craving a beer. Either way, Il Santo Bevitore is the hidden gem you’re looking for! Tucked away in the Cannaregio, far from the tourist traps of St. Marks Square, this small craft beer pub feels more Dublin than Venice. Full of locals and young travelers, Il Santo Bevitore is as authentic as it gets.
The staff is friendly, multi-lingual, and knowledgable. Whether you’re looking for beer recommendations or a nearby restaurant, the ladies of Il Santo Bevitore know it all.
When it comes to ordering, you can’t go wrong. Try a few of the rotating guest varieties, and then try another. Make sure to arrive early so you don’t miss the Cicchetti, small bites traditional to the bars of Venice.
There’s something about the place that makes you want to stick around. Order another round and enjoy outside on the patio as the night lingers- A very unlikely Venice evening that you won’t soon forget.
