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.

This place was a bit difficult to find, but well worth the effort. The wine was good and reasonably priced and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

Dropped in on an organised walk through the Rialto and tried the red wine - a chilled robosco frizzante - and meatballs - for which we understand the place is famous. It was a great mix. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. We went back later in our holiday and found him just as accommodating. The staff were friendly,... More

Wandering down the backstreets we came across this osteria. Very small, quaint. Excellent tapas, wine and the service was very, very friendly. Everything fresh and reasonably priced. Marco the owner was an excellent host and we can recommend this place 100%

How in the world did this place get such great reviews? The wine was the same as everyplace else. The general ambiance undistinguished. The cicchetti was by far the worst I've had in two trips to Venice. Within 100 yards, there are 10 better places.There must be dozens,if not hundreds of places as good or better. Really, just skip this... More

This place deserves a Michelin star or more! Inexpensive and has a lot of great and tasty cicchetti to offer. I had my fill just tasting most of what they offered! Best part of it all was that the staff were very friendly, efficient, and attentive to each customer.
