Pane Vino e San Daniele: a different restaurant chain

23 07 2012

In Venice it’s not easy to find a restaurant whose speciality isn’t fish.

“Pane Vino e San Daniele” is one of these restaurants. Actually the restaurants with this name in Venice are three: one is placed near the Rialto Bridge (Calle dei Botteri 1544) and the other two are in the Dorsoduro district (Calle Lunga San Barnaba 2861 and Campo dell’Angelo Raffaele 1722), not far away from each other. They belong to a chain that counts nearly 30 restaurants all around Italy.

The name of the chain (which means “Bread, Wine and San Daniele“) suggests that the speciality here is the San Daniele raw ham, which is made in the homonymous city sited in the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.

The menu in fact proposes a good variety of dishes with this famous type of ham. The food offer also includes pasta and meat dishes, some typical dishes from Friuli Venezia Giulia, salads and delicious desserts. At Pane Vino e San Daniele Rialto ( you can have also pizza, while at the one in Campo dell’Angelo Raffaele ( you can taste some dishes of the Sardinian cuisine too.

The three restaurants, being part of the same chain, are obviously similar in the style, simple and warm, but my favourite, for the location, is the one placed in Campo dell’Angelo Raffaele.

It is sited in a square tucked away from the mass, just behind the San Sebastiano church. The square is quiet and picturesque and here you can enjoy a bite of realVenetian life, among locals and very few tourists, tasting a good wine and a dish from the inland regions.
