This restaurant was recommended to me by the hotel I was staying in and it was a good advice. It is an authentic Italian place, very nice atmosphere . I ate regional food which is very good to try. The service is great they and they helped me with the menu since Ido not speak Italian. Good choice in Venice.

This is one of the best places for quick and cheap bites. So good that we had lunch here twice in a row. Everything is prepared fresh. We absolutely loved the truffle cream sandwich and the meatballs. It can get pretty busy in here around lunch time so come early. It's standing room only + a small table for 2... More

We read the reviews of this little cichetti eatery and wanted to check it out during our honeymoon in Venice. We found out the hard way that it was only open for lunch, so we went back the next day to check it out. It is definitely a place where LOTS of locals hit up! It was very busy so... More

We were in Venice for a week and this was the best cichetti we had during our stay. We had the basics of bacala, anchovies etc as well as a special duck with a soft boiled egg and spinach that was utterly delightful. The owners were a pleasure to speak with and more than happy to make suggestions. This is... More

We had very good Cichetti at this bustling local eatery. A nice mixture of locals and tourists and a friendly, efficient staff. We mostly pointed at what looked good to us, got a couple glasses of the house white wine, and settled up a fair and affordable check. Seating is VERY limited and tourists snatched up a lot of it...

Unique local atmosphere serving great nibbles (cicchetti) and wine paying next to nothing. A must visit when in Venice!

Tucked away in a narrow passage in San Polo, this small and tiny bacaro is favoured by traders and shoppers from the nearby Realto market. Busy and friendly place, open only for lunch, standing room dominated by a marble counter with an alluring selection of cicheti, thin slices of toasted bread topped with delicious concoctions of cod, salmon, prawns, shrimps,...

We saw that bar on tripadvisor and we had a problem to find it and we when we found it, they were closed. So we came there next day and it was brilliant! Deffinately the best pub in Venice for us. Great food, really great, very tasty wine, I completly understand why is it so popular

We loved their variety of cichetti and friendly staff!! If you're in Venice, you cannot leave without trying cichetti with ombres and if you had to pick one restaurant to try both, I'd seek out All Arco.

This little place tucked within the winding street of Venice near the Rialto Bridge is just wonderful for little lunches from 12-2pm. The place is really small and cosy with tables and chairs strewn outside along the streets. The food is like tapas where you can choose different types of food on slices of bread, they are freshly made with... More
