We ducked in because there were several people standing outside eating what they had just purchased inside and it looked very good. 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

We just love coming here. A rendezvous for locals (and tourists alike), this lovely bacaro is in San Trovaso. Cicchetti here are wonderful, varied, made freshly every day and are quite delicious. To stand outside by the canal with your plate of little culinary masterpieces - accompanied by a spritz or prosecco - allows you to soak up the atmosphere... More

This is my absolute favorite place in Venice. It's a small winebar next to the Accademia. The people working there are wonderful, not important if you're the casual tourist or the regular winedrinker. They feature very simple wines and you can also up high and drink the best of the best. Little snacks round up the wonderful atmosphere in and... More

Inventive toppings on small rounds of fresh crusty bread washed down with a 1 Euro glass of excellent house bulk wine while standing next to the canal in beautiful durosudoro - can't take a better lunch break than this!

This is a great place for a glass to recharge the batteries while wandering through town. The house wine is excellent for resolving a dry throat problem but there are also many excellent bottles on offer, and the snacks are wonderful. They do not do meals, however. It can be hard to get served sometimes, the place can overflow at... More

Went here for lunch in between our exploring the city. The chiccetti options to choose from in the bar are endless and all is freshly prepared in house. The bread crostina with bacala' (cod roe dip) is to die for and we tasted bacala' basically everywhere we went in Venice but this must be the creamiest and tastiest ever! We... More

After spending a week in Italy and eating way too much food, a guide mentioned that we should try eating at a "cichietti" when in Venice. After another large lunch, it was a perfect early evening meal. They have about 8-10 small appetizers available that you chose from (1.2 euro per item) and another 2 euro for a small glass... More

We walked in after finding this place on tripadvisor and, after ordering two glasses of (delicious and very cheap!) wine, asked the owner to recommend us a few of his favorite cichietti. He responded with a cheeky smile and 'I can't, my mother makes them! They're all my favorite!' so we chose the ones that looked the best instead. It... More
