Perfect cicchetti in San Polo

The reviews weren't wrong - fabulous, inventive cicchetti. This is the real thing - a tiny bar serving snacks at around 1 euro fifty. So many places offer a piece of bread with a shaving of Parma ham. At All' Arco there is a great variety of fish, cheese, various hams and sausage to top slices of... read more

We had this place recommended by a local and then of course we had to try cicchetti. It was very delicous and reasonable priced.

This hidden little gem just off the main Rialto tourist area is a wonderful place for a light but delicious snack and some cheap but fantastic wine. You'll need to be quick though - it might not be crawling with tourists but the locals are definitely wise to it. We visited on Saturday lunch time and were squashed into the... More

This location is where the locals go for great food and a glass of wine. No seating area, standing room only, but it feels like home. Have as much as you can! Highly recommended for a locals experience. Cheap and fresh.

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 anchovy crosstini. The bar staff/owners are... 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).

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
