Worth a visit

We were drawn to this little place by the crowd outside, and have no regrets about stopping to try it! The fried calamari, cod, shrimp, tuna and meatballs were all delicious. A glass of house red wine and prosecco rounded it off well. Would return for another visit!

We went here as a couple looking for a quick glass of wine and snack while most places to eat were closed (around 5 pm). We ended up having 4 glasses each and 3 different cicchetti each. Try the Malbeck (wine of the house).

Our friend took us here when we met up with him at Ponte Di Rialto-it was quite a walk and definitely you need a map, we couldn't have reached there by ourselves. But the food was amazing, the atmosphere-this is what you travel around the place for. We recommend this place with confidence!

Quite hidden in an alley near the vaporetto-station San Tomà, this little wine bar is a precious exception from many touristic and over expensive restaurants. The food is divine and widely varied, as one can choose from many different 'tapas-like' dishes for a very good price! Very casual and really small but cute and characteristicly Venetian. You must absolutely go... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this place and "ciccetthi" and loved it. Great value wine by the glass and simple but delicious "ciccetthi" (Venetian finger food). This was a highlight of our trip to Venice. The meatballs are incredible! Check opening times... 5.30-8.30 in the evening.

We were told by a local that ciccetta (tapas) was the cheapest way to eat in Venice. So we were on a mission to find a place. We stumbled upon this place which is close to the Rialto Market. My goodness was this place amazing. The staff and chef were so nice and it was very reasonable in price. For... More

Just got back from Venice and found this place having seen it on trip advisor. This is such a refreshing change to the commercial bars that you can feel like you are being fleeced in. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The tapas was amazing... so delicious and so cheap and most of all authentic Italian cuisine. The prosecco... More

The food was so good we ate here twice! I had read all the amazing reviews on tripadvisor and knew we had to find it. Just a short walk over the Rialto Bridge, through the market and boom, we found it! The atmosphere is very welcoming and so is the staff. This tapas style Osteria was perfect for us to... More

For a small place is great. There are few places to eat in Venice and this is one of them. The location is in the center and the prices are frendly. If you like the fish fast food this is the location

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.
