Pasticceria da Nono Colussi – Best focaccia in town

At first sight, “Nono Colussi” (literally Grandfather Colussi) shop seems like an ordinary bakery. In this historical place, biscuits and cakes have been baked fresh every day since 1956.

The reason to look for this spot is the typical Venetian “focaccia”. A soft and fluffy cake made with yeast base. Nono Colussi’s way to bake this sponge focaccia is the most famous in town and it’s worth the walk and the price (€ 17 for the small one) for tasting it. When I was a child, my aunt usually bought this delicious sweet focaccia for my sister and I. We used to enjoyed it, slice by slice in less than one day.

While you are waiting for the package of your focaccia, you can try another amazing pastry baked by Nono Colussi. I really suggest the krapfen stuffed with cream: a real stairway to Heaven.
