Worth the Walk !

Best source for local wine - super fresh food. We love "finding" this place when we go to Venice. We have been there three different times, and this is a must for our first glass of wine, and a "snack" , mid afternoon. I would call ahead, as they sometimes shut down early in the week.

As per other reviews the venetian Street food here is exquisite.. We stumbled across this place strolling around this bohemian, laid back district... A couple of drinks (spritz of course) and a plateful of some of the most amazing food to be found in the whole of Venice... Superb

This is a fantastic local wine spot, on a quieter street in the Academia area. Great selection of Italian wines and grappas to buy, and very good wines by the glasses. A very local scene. And totally inexpensive. You can enjoy the wines either at the bar or outside near a small canal.

We found Cantinone Gia' Schiavi by accident while wandering around the quieter Dorsoduro neighborhood. It was a little later in the afternoon, so the Venetian tradition of gathering for cicchetti (small snacks similar to Spanish tapas) had begun and this place already had a lively crowd. There was an extensive selection of cicchetti, many of which are small slices of... More

We tripped over this place by accident and Wow, what a find. The tapas in the display cabinet was all devine and very reasonable at just over 1 Euro a serve. The place was full of locals when we were there and added to the atmosphere of the place. We ended up have a couple of glasses of vino and... More

of all the places we visited in Venice, this stands out as the one where we were made to feel really unwelcome. The cichetti was good, the prices were fine but we must have been there at the wrong time because there was no response when we greeted them; no response as we ordered our food and when I asked...

We had just visited Gallerie dell'Accademia (I wanted to see the "Feast at the House of Levi) and we were looking for something quick. Our hotel, Hotel dei Dragomanni had told us about Cantinone Gia' Schiavi so we gave it a shot. It was wonderful. We selected our "Cicchetti" and allowed the waiter to select the wine. We were not...

Prosecco €2 per glass (plastic cup if drinking outside) and this is fair enough as most people take their drink out and sit on the wall of the canal, atmosphere buzzing. Great for a pit stop on the way to our apartment on the Zatteret

Check out the address and then come for mid morning nibbles. Well worth the effort if you are nearby.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
