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

Greeat place to enjoy Aperol or Wine! We have tasted fresh seafood cicchetti and it was very good and cheap. Be carreful - this place is very small and usually is very crowdy.

We searched for this little tapas restaurant after reading such quality reviews and knowing it wasn't far from our hotel. We actually went twice in the same night. The ham with melon on bread and slightly spicy meatball were our favorite small bites. But the wine was really the stand out. They also had a well marked menu that was... More

dropped in on a food tour, and loved it. Heading back again today. Bustling warm and friendly, chilled Babosa (?) was so very very moreish, and the cicchetti was just yum. Fresh food, made great! Two thumbs up :-)

We were starving and looking for dinner and came across this place. A quick snack/drink to tide us over became a mission to sample all on offer. Thouroughly recommend especially the giant prawns! House red was good too!

Really great food, very relaxed atmosphere and full of the locals. An authentic taste of Italy. Definitely recommend a glass of wine and a selection of their snacks.
