Old, traditional bar where you get great cicchetti (small, Italian tapas) in the afternoon. Do as the locals - ask for a few on a plastic plate, get some good wine and go outside and enjoy it at the canal side. This is one of the oldest and most traditional bacaris in town, always lively. You can also buy good... More

I cant believe I actually found this place again. First time we chanced upon it during aqua alta and a quick exit from Venice Jazz Club, so a real bonus to find out that we hadn't imagine it.. Next to the canal in the Dorsoduro area and teeming with people, both locals and tourists. No seats but just enough elbow... More

I love this place and eat here as many times as I can fit in when in Venice. The food (small food, stand up and eat, with fingers) is excellent. The house wine is very inexpensive but if you want better they have everything you could want as they are an enotecca.

We accidently stopped by and saw the crowds gathered outside so we thought we need to give it a try. Bought ourselves four chicceti and some wine and took them across the bridge to sit across the street. We very much enjoyed the food and the wine. Nothing fancy but basic food with good combinations of taste and a lovely... More

Stumbled upon this tiny place late in the day, and it was just what we needed. Friendly staff with reasonably good English, huge wine selection and they're happy to make suggestions from, and awesome chicchetti -- I was thinking about the brie and anchovy that I had there for the rest of our trip. It's definitely small and crowded and... More

Widest variety and highest quality of Chicetti in Venice. Sometimes surly service but who cares!! Unique combinations ans always extremely fresh and vibrant. Well balanced flavors. A trip to Venice would not be complete for us without stopping here. All wines by glass are nice too! Stand at the bar, stand inside by the wine bottles or eat outside on... More

Many choices of excellent chichetti...enerything from octopus to spicyy ham. Excellent bread and delicious sandwiches. Good red wine and best of all great prices. Lots of local traffic but no problem handling an order in english. If all... More

A fun spot to grab a quick bite to eat on the way to dinner. On a Wednesday night, there was a large crowd of people eating and drink along the canal outside. The service was very quick. The food was inexpensive. The small bites were excellent. There were also many bottles of wine for sale, though we did not... More
