We were referred to Alla Ciurma for lunch by noted glassworker Mauro Vianello (also highly reviewed on TA). Great little osteria with small items - sandwiches, flatbreads, arancina, fiori di zucca, etc. Stopped in for lunch and glass of white wine and had a delicious meal of various small bites. The fiori di zucca was amazing, the best we found... More

We went there for a light lunch, following Tripadvisor rates and comments. We taste a mix of several tapas. Great fresh food with local flavors and good wine. Is a small place only with 3 tables. Kind and kick service. Great value for money. I really recommend it.

Great "tapas" style food and really good wines, all for a very good price. Really nice for a quick bite and tipple at lunch. Not the easiest to find mind you!

This is by far the best restaurant we visited in Venice! All the appetizer plates are just delicious and surprisingly filling. The scallops were our favorite. The owners were also really nice! This is a self-service restaurant - you order and pick up the food at the bar. Not all of the staff spoke English which makes it tricky, but... More

I looked forward to eating here, but something has gone horribly wrong... May be my fault... I hoped this place is open for dinner ( guess it is more a lunch place), so imagine our delight to see it was open at 8 pm. Ok, here it goes. The hosts speak little to nothing English (the guy more than a... More

Dear TA member I'm afraid that your experience in our osteria was not good. I'm very sad, we usually close at 20:30... 21 probably my wife didn't understand or she couldn't explain well in english. Anyway if you'll have the opportunity to come again Venice contact us with e-mail We will do our best. Thank you. Marco More

The tapas are delicious, ranging from 1 to 2 euros per unit. House wine is 1.5 euro, they don't charge for service, service is excellent and we see a lot of locals there. Very small place, so it must be crowded sometimes, but it was not today. We ate well, were very happy and spent only 13 euros for two... More

We had searched the Rialto area for several places for cicchetti and wine for lunch when we suddenly stumbled into this pearl in a narrow alley. Locals hanging outside drinking their wine in the street, great atmosphere inside with plenty of good house wine from the Veneto area and excellent selection of home made cicchetties. Highly recommended for Venetian lunch... More

Having enjoyed the pintos in San Sebastián we were keen to try Italian cicchetti and we're not disappointed. As covered in previous reviews it is easy to find (use google maps) and is a locals bar, we were the only tourists. The owner and his wife were very friendly and put up with our poor attempts at speaking Italian. The... More

Tucked away from the major touristy piazzas it was a perfect place to have a drink and some excellent cicchetti. Great atmosphere and reasonable prices. An experience in itself!

What a pleasant surprise! We had read good reviews on this place and they turned out to be true. The BEST cicchetti we ate on our visit. We started out in the early evening just north of the Rialto Bridge to try the cicchetti bars that were recommended in the Rick Steves Guidebook. We ate cicchetti at 3 of the... More
