The best cicchetti in Venice

Well this is the best bar we found during our stay (trying to find these bars is hard work as the numbering system is almost impossible). There are no seats, no tables, just a window shelf, but wow what great cicchetti, we had a cream cheese Mushroom and truffle crosstini and a Gorgonzola and... read more

Lovely atmosphere, really good selection of wines and the selection of nibbles are great. Lively place to visit, only downside was that it closes quite early so make sure you visit early afternoon.

I read and researched the Venetian chicceti scene extensively, and after a thorough cross referencing decided to have my Saturday breakfast at All'Arco. It was one of the best breakfasts I had with excellent chicceti and too much wine for 10am. It is a good place to experience the Bacari of Venice, if you like wine in the morning and... More

It's a small place so gets very crowded but it's definitely worth checking out - note that it's predominantly a standing joint. If you're a foodie, this is the place for you - best not to ask what the little snacks are - just select whatever looks appetising to you and take a leap of faith - you won't be... More

Great Cicchetti, delicious and cheap wine, geniuenly friendly and helpful staff. You know it’s a good spot when it’s crowded by locals (or at least Italian tourists).

i found this place on a review online and checked up on trip advisor. Very busy during lunch and only a couple of tables outside + some ledges to stand and eat indoors. The food was strange, not for the faint hearted (baby octopus & liver) but very authentic, some nice toasted sandwich things for the less brave. Good wine... More

Uber delicious cichetti - not a vast selection of food but they were all solid choices. Great selection of beer and wine too. Very friendly and relaxed service; if unsure - they're more than happy to recommend food and drinks to suit. Suggest buying your food and sitting outside if possible (2 tables only); not much of an atmosphere sitting... More

Probably the best bacaro we visited. So near to the crowds but a world away from being touristy. Give it a try.

So enjoyed my first visit there that I had to return the next day. Five different seafood crostini and a very nice procecco on my first trip, and then a hot roll overflowing with salami, cheese and roasted veg the second time. Both delicious. Really friendly family feel, great value and amazingly in prime tourist territory just a short walk... More
