This is an Excellent cicchetti place! My apartment was very close by so I was able to go twice in 3 days and both my husband and I loved it. There are a variety of cicchetti. Almost all are on little pieces or bread. Examples of the variety you'll find - cod, gorgonzola and porcini, procuitto and porcini, egg and... More

Don't understand the negative points in some other reviews. As to value for money, a big yes. This family run eatery has no frills, but the ambience, bustle of the place, as locals call in for a quick glass of Wine (3 Euros) and a few Chicheti for my wife and I was a highlight. We managed to get one... More

Great lunch spot where you will be rubbing elbows with locals grabbing a sandwich and a glass of wine during the lunch break. They feature a display of many different cichetti, such as fresh octopus tentacles on bread and chunks of salty cod. Point at the ones you want and then either eat standing up by one of the windows... More

This place is abuzz with the locals and tourists alike. Hidden away from the Main Street but only a stones throw away from the ponte Rialto. Expect a plate full of cicchetti and a spritz aperol to come in under €10. I saw some reviewers have said don't go if you don't speak Italian I say ignore that. I don't... More

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...
