While strolling along the romantic via Cadore, it would be easy to spot the cute tents and tables of Isa e Vane on the corner of via Perugino. The vintage interior acts like a cinematic time wrap: groovy tales in black and red and stylish easy chairs portray its beautiful love affair with a French bistro from the 1950s.
My typical breakfast here happens in the company of a forest fruits croissant, a velvety cappuccino and the international issue of New York Times.
Lunch hours are busier, but I definitely recommend you take your time and choose the backyard of Isa e Vane as the setting for your lunch break. Through a corridor visitors are taken into the spacious garden, where the vintage mood is enhanced by trees planted in barrels and fabulous red tablecloths. My favourite appears to be the daily vellutata, an original cream-soup. If you come earlier, you may be lucky enough to get a slice of the delightful vegetable tart.
Meals are started with a lovely bread bag and everything arrives in generous portions. The desserts are all homemade and often served with a pinch of originality.
Isa e Vane attracts a colourful crowd and definitely stays in the number one place when it comes to an aperitivo in the area.
If you feel lazy or you are caught up in the busy urban chaos, you can also order a specialty from the daily menu or get something from their store.
