Buongiorno, Hackney.

Ombra is a take on a Venetian bacaro - we're a Hackney canalside joint you can visit regularly for a drink and a bite without spending a fortune.

About Us

Ombra - Venetian slang for a glass of wine - actually means shade. It dates from the days when the merchants in Piazza St Marco sold their wine by the glass and would follow the shadow of the campanile to keep their wares cool.


Ombra is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Lunch is served from 12pm-3pm and dinner is served from 6pm-10pm.

From Tuesday to Friday we serve a lunch menu at £12 for a pasta and a glass of wine. On Sunday we serve a three course set menu at £20 per head from 12pm-5.30pm

Private hire available upon request.
