Nice, small, cosy bar with good cicchetti. Very decent selection of Italian wines starting at €1.50 per glass. When we visited most cicchetti on offer were deep-fried; all delicious but also filling. Many locals strolled in and out of the bar. Would definitely go again.

This is another tiny bar - we didn't expect to be able to even get in given it was lunchtime and imagine our surprize when not only did we find the door opened wide e also got a table! We sampled various small cicchetti - the traditional lightly fried butterflied sardines on bread; freshly fried courgette flower stuffed with mozzarella... More

We got here (very small place, and you definitely need to be looking for it to find it) and immediately all of the power went out on the block. We ordered our food and wine by cell phone flashlight. It was all pretty tasty, but make sure you get here early because once they run out of food, that's it.... More

What a fantastic place! We only ended up here because our other choice for lunch was closed. Great food, lovely wine and fantastic service. Filled with locals a real taste of Venice.

Do not miss this place - it is not expensive but do not go for that reason - go because of the food and the atmosphere - the locals use this place and it is a must when in Venice!

Food in Venice is rarely great, rarely affordable, and rarely fast. Osteria Alla Ciurma is a small cichetti place that puts virtually everything they serve into a deep fryer. Especially good are the zucchini blossoms, the shrimp, and the bacala. Can be very crowded and cramped, but there is a method to the madness and they keep a running tab... More

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.
