“The city of a hundred horizons”
– Giosuè Carducci –
This short and poetic quote excellently expresses the essence of Asolo, a wonderful fortified city in the heart of the green Venetian landscape. History, art and culture intertwine in this magical place, considered as one of the most beautiful Italian villages, enchanting visitors.
After a pleasant stroll, getting lost in the village narrow streets, maybe even climbing the city walls to enjoy a breathtaking view, a well-deserved break is needed: therefore, let’s sit among the outdoor tables of the Caffè Commercio in Asolo.
An informal place in the historic center
At any time of day, this informal venue is always the right place for a stop, be it a coffee break, a fast lunch or a relaxed aperitif. The special Veneto-style “cicchetti” are highly appreciated here, with tasty quality products, often including traditional specialties, such as polenta and salami.
The selection of wines is also rich and the place is actually particularly popular during aperitif time to drink an “ombra” or a refreshing “spritz” all together, comfortably seated at the aubergine-coloured Qu tables matching the comfortable Villa chairs by Colos.
Outdoor tables and seats that do not fear cobblestones
Whoever owns a venue in a historic center paved with cobblestones knows very well the tables’ possible problems in terms of balance and stability. In these circumstances, the Qu tables are perfect, since they are self-levelling. You can find more information about this topic in our article Uneven flooring? No problems with the QU table!
Their minimalist and sober structure in tubular metal frame was expressly designed for use outdoors, where slightly uneven surfaces are so common. Solid and lightweight at the same time, they can be stacked and are very easy to handle, meaning they can be moved around effortlessly as required.
Combining them with Villa chairs in the same shade is a perfect choice. Here, the metal mesh – made from expanded metal – is combined with four tubular steel elements, resulting in a light yet solid frame.
The version selected by Caffè Commercio in Asolo is both with and without armrests, thus creating a more varied setup, featuring a lively design that is pleasant to experience.
