About us

Bar pasticceria Ballarin located near the well known Rialto bridge is a cozy “sweet” corner in one of the narrow Venetian streets. If you happen to have a sweet tooth this is the place for you. By the way, dolce sounds even sweeter in Italian.
Buns, pastry, mousse, aromatic coffee and excellent chocolate. The list of sweet things will not be complete without fancy cakes that can be ordered here for any festive occasion, be it a wedding or a birthday party, a graduation feast or any other memorable event. For aperitif lovers there are a variety of Spritz with Pizzettas for all tastes and a warming punch. A distinctive feature of Italian pastry shops is that all the products are made daily from fresh ingredients of the highest quality.
This incredibly nice confectionery was founded by two brothers – Alberto and Luca Ballarin.

In 2016 it was rated among the best on the TripAdvisor and awarded with Golden Plate by Good Food Advisor.
