MY FAVOURITE BAKERIES
Address: San Marco, Calle de S. Luca, 30124 Venice VE
Excellent artisanal and historical bakery offering a wide variety of special breads with whole grains flours and seeds, biscuits, cakes, savoury goods and freshly made pasta and gnocchi. I suggest trying the pan del pescator biscuits with raisins, pine nuts and hazelnuts, absolutely mouthwatering. (See My Review)
Address: Castello, Salizada S. Canzian, 5935, 30121 Venice VE
Address: Cannaregio 5335, 30121 Venice VE
Whether you prefer sweet or savoury treats, this bakery will satisfy your taste. Delicious bread (my favourite is the filone integrale, whole grain loaf, but I also recommend the one with walnuts), croissants, pastries and sbreghetti (toasted slices of loaves with raisins, cereals, nuts or herbs).
Address: Cannaregio, Guglie 1291, 30121 Venice VE
Fantastic bakery about with lovely staff and quality of bread. Very interesting offer of special breads, treats like fried bread, pizza and savoury cakes and a vast assortment of pastries and biscuits.
Note: on Tuesdays they make lasagna and on Friday baccalà mantecato (excellent).
DAIRY, CURED MEATS AND SPECIALTY OLIVES
Address: San Polo, 30125 Venice VE
Small cheese shop located at the corner between Ruga Rialto and Ruga deli Oresi. Great cheese at great prices and a must try is their baccalà mantecato (creamed stockfish). Consider buying a vacuumed sealed piece of Parmesan, absolutely excellent.

Address: San Polo, Campo Bella Vienna 214, 30125 Venice
Renown cheese and cured meat shop opened in 1936. All dairy products are to die for, from yogurt to fresh, seasoned and blue cheese. The cured meats too are of first choice, so whatever you will choose you will land on your feet.
Address: Campo San Barnaba 2844, Venice, Italy
Delicacy shop selling a very well selected offer of wines and liquors, high quality olive oils, pasta and rice and amazing cheese and cold cuts. All products are from virtuous producers, therefore the quality is very very good. It's also possible to have a small wine, cheese and meat tasting (25 euros for 2 people).
