Small Bar, Tasty Food

We stopped off here for lunch, and had a pleasant meal. The seating area is very limited but the food is plentiful with a good selection of tapas. We enjoyed all the dishes we had, and the local venetian beer was lovely. Was good value for money too.

Cicchetteria veneziana is the Venetian way of calling an aperitivo time with lovely 'tapas'. Nowhere else in Italy I've heard that word being used. Linguistics aside, that place is a top notch aperitivo place. It's not a restaurant, it's a place you go for a quick Spritz aperol or Spritz Campari with the most amazing snacks/bites/ tapas/cicchetti I've ever tried.... More

staff spoke english. Selection of food was ok. We came a bit late for lunch and not everything was fresh. It could be that was the cause but I found the food to be a bit lack luster after so many glowing reviews. All in all not a bad meal but nothing to write home about.

This place is worth a visit. My wife and I tested a variety of the "Cicchetti", along with the house wine. The majority of the cicchetti are fried, but they also had meatball options. Our favorites were the seafood chicchetti, such as the calamari and shrimp. I also recommend the meatballs. This place was great for a little snack as... More

Extremely friendly service here. At first we were a bit confused on how to order but were told to come on up and just point out what we'd like. He went through each of the items with us and told us what was in each one. We decided on the calamari (VERY good, well seasoned, and not tough or chewy),... More

Small place with really tasty and fresh food, expecially the local "cicchetti". The service was fast even if it was quite crowded, and the prices are really low (if i remember well 1.50 to 2 each cicchetti).

We have stopped here on at least 2 visits to Venezia for an wine and an ice cold beer. Sample the multiple crostini made fresh daily. Careful as these tend to add to the bill quickly as most of the relatively small but tasty crostini are 1.50 euro each. But this is a good stop for a quick drink and... More

Very friendly, very good food. Broad selection of meat and fish cicchetteria. Worth spending the time to find. Treated locals and tourists with the same courtesy. A must stop on the cicchetteria tour.

Stopped here for a few cicchetti and some wine. The place is typically 'shabby' but the people are friendly and the freshly prepared cicchetti something to try out. Very very friendly ladies running the osteria would visit again next time in Venice.

If you can find this place you won't be sorry! It took us a bit, but that is Venice. After we enjoyed the fish market we wanted some delicious seafood snacks. You know it is fresh when the people working there are eating the shrimp raw. You also know it is good when you see locals eating there and chatting... 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.
