Osteria Ai Pugni

A typical Venetian Osteria: great wine, cured meats and a cozy atmosphere.

More than 30 years experience

The bar is named Osteria Dei Pugni it is located right next to the Ponte Dei Pugni (“Bridge of Fists”), which was a popular area during the Renaissance where fist fights between rival clans took place. The four corners of the bridge still have four remarkable footprints indicating the starting point for the fighters. The design of the bar has been modernized, with a very welcoming entrance under a wood-beamed ceiling slathered with gray paint together with the red proof.

Constant change of Wine

Sitting, watching the world go by on the bridge, you can take a sensory journey through the Italian regions, their history, and their peculiarities . This is the basis of our wine list, constantly evolving, always varied and curious.

Comfy and Cozy

A beautiful location with all the comforts, accompanied by soft and live music. The atmosphere of an “Artistic Container”, a space for creative work from painting to photography with 15 seats, sublimed by wooden interiors and soft lights, an intersection between tradition and modernity.
