Italians Of London: a Venetian Aperitif under the Gherkin!


Join us for a classy gastronomic journey into the "Queen of Adriatico" (as Venice was called) on Friday 7 July, admiring the giant awesomeness of the Gherkin from this trendy new wine bar, while sipping Prosecco and Florente cocktail!

Historically, "BACARI" were basic canteens typical in Venice. Venetian people used to respect the custom ritual "andar per bàcari" which means "stopping by the bàcari" after work for a couple of glasses of wine while calming down the appetite with "CICCHETTI" which are delicious homemade nibbles!

Nowadays these very specific places have evolved into modern and classy winebars where you can still enjoy a great selection of top quality wines while tasting the authentic "cicchetti" and experience the joyfulness of their simple origins.

In a similar fashion to the locals in Venice escaping from the crowded areas to find their spot of peace in the narrow little streets just behind Piazza San Marco, we are giving you the chance to find your wine heaven in a lovely and tiny street at the feet of the Gherkin!

We will experience first-hand the "andar per Bacari" ritual of sipping a chilled Prosecco or the new "Florente" cocktail from Milano and sampling an assortment of Cicchetti while relaxing and chatting on a lovely Friday summer evening!


Here's a preview of the mouth-watering selection of Italian appetisers showcased in the Cicchetti selection:

- Bufala Campana Mozzarella, Truffle Cheese, Pecorino Sardo Cheese, Ricotta di Bufala,
- Parma Ham 24 aged, Mortadella, Prosciutto Cotto, Salame Milano;
- Pachino tomatoes, artichokes hearts;
- Mix pizza bites.

Then we'll focus on some very typical recipe from Adriatico Bacari such as:

- Octopus the Venetian style
- Polenta Fritta with Ragù di Salsiccia Veneta with pepper and Fennel seeds,
- Homemade ravioli with buffalo ricotta, mint and lemon.

...and for the sweet tooth, Adriatico Bacari has a special treat for you:

- Chocolate dessert with caramel and sea salt.

And when it comes to wines, Gianluca, from Adriatico Bacari, will suggest you the perfect pairing with Chianti, Nero D'Avola, Vermentino, Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio and the tasty Cicchetti!
