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

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
