Waited forever to be recognized by server/owner. She tended to people who were white first. Would not come back for more mistreatment.

Had a quick lunch here recently. Not my first visit. They arent always very friendly but were fine this time. However they really have lovely little sandwiches and its really near one of my favourite shops-sabbie e nebbie-so always good for a pit-stop.

Just stumbled upon this cute little bar/cafe after a morning of seeing the sights and walking around Venice. We had our first (& best!) Bellini here and a yummy panini - all served from a very friendly and helpful waiter. Grab an outside table to watch the world go past - great people watching. Relaxed and good food - highly... More

We had a lovely light lunch in Bar ai Nomboli on our first day in Venice. We sat outside, had two salads, a beer, a wine, 2 coffees and it came to ~30?. Friendly staff (English spoken, though this is true in most of Venice), good choice of lunches (sandwiches, pasta, salads), and not much in the middle of the... More

This family bar stop is just what you need after visiting the Frari or any of the attractions in San Polo. The tramezzini are exquisitely fresh. This reminded me that there was something wonderful about Wonderbread! The problem was that the slices were too thick and not lovely and delicate like these tramezzini. The family and locals are friendly here.... More

It was lunchtime and we were starving - then we came across Ai Noboli - obviously family-run mum/dad/son. All there servicing clients whether in the kitchen, on the coffee machine or front counter. We were served quickly, and watched many come and go - all satisified with their meal purchases. We went there twice once in May 13 and then... More

This is a great little bar for a coffee, spritz, sandwich, or whatever. Prices are very reasonable, and the small square is a pleasant stop off the well-trodden path. Definitely try the pannini or a "toast," always made with quality, fresh ingredients.

Fell over this bar one lunchtime and made mental note we had to find it again when we returned to Venice. Excellent freshly made pannini's and Valpolicella Ripasso. Great value, don't miss it.
