For some reason I really wanted to see Piazza San Marco at night so one evening after dinner we headed in that direction, but it was not quite dark by the time we got there. Since I didn't feel like just waiting around, we went in search of a place where we could have a nice glass of wine without breaking the bank. Considering the area we were in and the time of the day (most restaurants were still full with the dinner crowd) we walked around for quite some time before stumbling upon this little wine bar located just one street behind the basilica. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us a summary description of all the wines that were available by the glass. Prices were very reasonable and we enjoyed the ambience and music (there was also a light menu available but we weren't hungry enough to try anything). By the time we finished our wine the sun had gone down so I was able to see Piazza San Marco at night as planned (see photos), all the while enjoying that warm and fuzzy feeling only a really nice glass of Sangiovese can provide :o)
