I Tre Mercanti

from: Fisheye Venice


Roberto Caruti is the manager and one of three partners in I Tre Mercanti, a top-quality gourmet shop that offers carefully selected foods and wines from throughout Italy. (Signor Caruti is a native Venetian who spent 10 years with Gucci in Italy and Britain; his wife is English.)

I Tre Mercanti, which opened in 2007, has an inventory that changes with the seasons--including such delights as 50-year-old balsamic vinegar in 60-ml bottles (filled from a production run of only 1.2 liters per year), specialty olive oils from Italy's best growers, and nearly 100 pasta sauces.

Signor Caruti and his English-speaking staff will pack items for safe transport or ship them to you with customs duties prepaid. The store is in Castello, just a few blocks north of St. Mark's Basilica and the Piazza San Marco.
