"Osteria Riccio Peoco" is a busy bacaro in Venice. The atmosphere is really cozy and the food is amazing: my favourite dish here is the panino scrocchio...

Riccio Peoco is a nice bacaro located in campo Santi Apostoli, one of Venice's most important crossroads, between three sestrieri: san Marco, Castello and Cannaregio. This name comes from the second name of the owner, Riccio, while peoco means bald in the Venetian dialect.

Campo Santi Apostoli is busy at pretty much every hour of the day, and this bacaro always hosts many people, by day and night. I used to go there every night after work, when almost all the rest of the bars in the area were closed.

The atmosphere is really cozy, despite the place itself not being really big. I also find it very nice and interesting watching people flowing on the outside, while I am inside chillin', sipping some wine. The policy about wine is the same as almost every other bacaro in Venice: one euro either red or white.

The food is amazing here: there is a wide variety of cicheti such as arancini, meatballs, crostini, cuttlefish and the house speciality, il panino scrocchio. This is definitely my favourite one, it's super tasty: it consists of a buttered, salty croissant stuffed with garlic, milk and a special paste made with salame marinated in red wine. Just amazing!

On Friday night there is live music that contributes to making the atmosphere even more fascinating. A place to stop by!
