Recommended by the guidebook. Quite difficult to find but was fun walking down all the little back streets looking for it and observing the locals. Worth popping on on the way back from the Rialto Market to St Marks. Very small family run bar and restaurant serving cheap chichetti - be warned it is small and there is limited seating... More

May be the expectations were to high. It is cheap, but for my taste, the five chichetti that i ate were only ok.

This bar was recommended to us by our tour host, and what a busy place it was! Everyone was very nice, and we really couldn't tell what the choices were, but we just pointed to what we wanted, ordered a couple spritzes, and ate outside. Whatever we ate, it was delicious, and a fun experience.

I think I first heard about All'Arco online from an Italian blogger who was raving about it and justifiably so. During my week long stay in Venice to study Italian in San Polo last October, this place became my usual lunch stop, even introducing my fellow classmates to it. I believe it's a family run place and they are all... More

A simple place yet excellent cicheti (mostly seafood). Very good value! Would recommend for a quick lunch or early supper near the Rialto bridge.

All Arco is a bit hard to find but definitely worth it. It's supposedly open from 8 am to 2:30 pm (and NOT in the evening). We arrived around 9 am - the friendly young barman apologized for having very little ready. He spoke perfect English and even said, "Have a nice day!" when we left. No. 1 Son had... More

This was our final stop on my wife and it's cichetti hop through the Rialto region, and we couldn't have picked a better place to end. When we arrived, the staff was entertaining a few locals as the lunch hour wound down, freely pouring glasses of wine and dishing out the remaining tapas. I happily approached the counter and ordered... More

Visited here on my honeymoon and was so happy we did. We were led to this place after meeting a local Chef in the nearby market who suggested of all the places we try this one. It was honest Italian food and the place was full of locals which is always a good sign when traveling. Price was fair, service... More

Agree with all what was said before. The staff was very warm, the food great, and the wine delicious. I can't say the prices are cheap, but they are very reasonable, and the quality to price ratio is very high. The price itself is amazingly clean, even the lamps on the ceiling have no dust. Usually it is a sign... More

What a superb place for a great lunch and such great value for money in a city where it is easy to be a victim to inflated prices. Having marvelled at the fish on sale at the Fish Market, All'Arco showed us what tasty treats could be made with them. Either standing inside or sitting at one of the pavement... More
