Good Stop

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... read 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

Nice and small place in which one can choose from a very extended list of great wines, including traditional/home made wine. Moreover, one can order some snacks priced at 1,50 €. There were hardly tourists so that one can feel as a local. Waiter was extremely friendly.

I was keen to try a "Bacaro" or "Cicchetteria" in Venice (not sure which this is - perhaps both!), and the TA reviews suggested this was one of the best. We went at lunchtime. It was obviously popular, it had a good buzz, the prices were low, and we even managed to get a table. Our bill (including two small... More

Not sure the hype over the food.. walked specially to find the bar and ordered a few fried snacks.to.takeaway but they were rather disappointing. Food was reheated in the microwave hence they were soggy. Nice atmosphere though for a drink though small

Its a small venue but with freshly prepared cichetta. You may have to share a table with ransoms but its okay because you don't leisurely dine in a place like this. The fried meatballs are great and cheap. So is the artichoke. The crostinis are OK. Some of the food isnt hot, they warm it up for you but it... More

This place was definitely worth hunting down for, reading the reviews on this place we decided to give it a go. The fried seafood was delicious and great wine. Very reasonably price for good food in Venice.

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.
