As all the other reviews have said, this was a litttle gem of a place. So glad we found it. Two rolls with delicious filling and glass of wine for 5 Euro. Stopped here for lunch on the two days we were in Venice and kept us going till we had dinner in the evening. Would highly recommend.

Very good selection of wines served in surprisingly elegant glasses - you stand with your drink and nibbles outside in the campo (by the Rialto market) - all very trendy and happening.

We are really enjoying bars like that, aperols, wines on the street. Next to that bars there are a lot of good bars, so if you want to continue, it's a great choice. Enjoy their ciabbatas and great wines.

My favourite bar for cicchetti and spritz in Venice. Near Rialto bridge and fish market is the perfect "pit stop" during the visit of the city.

This place seats 1 (one), but the square opposite stands 100+ Grab a drink, a chiccetto (small snippet of food), find your friends in the crowd and enjoy

Little more than a hole in the wall serving wine, spritz and a few chicchetti at the Rialto market. Gets really busy with young locals creating a great atmosphere. Without a doubt the best Aperol Spritz we found in Venice and a snip at 3 Euro. A good choice for a pre or post dinner drink.

This is your spritz and snack bar which was packed on Friday night with the after work mob mixed with tourists and students spilling out over the pavement. It's just a hole in the wall - you stand eat, drink and chat in the street, but it's a great buzz and it easy to get talking to others. I think... More

This was a great find! We tried to come back on Sunday but as expected due to the market being shut so was this place, such a shame!
