Wide, excellent selection of wines etc

Loved their cicchetti. The size of their cups/glasses were smaller than Another great Bacaro few doors down, "Osteria di Squero" . Really good.

We were looking for a good bar when we were out in the Academia district and found this place which is well reviewed in trip advisor. I can't help thinking if it was ever that good, it has slipped. Their cicchetti were average at best, and the service was not 'with a smile'. On the plus side, it is a... More

Recommended to this restaurant by our hotel staff. The ravioli I had with truffle sauce, may have been the best dish I've ever had in a restaurant. My family wasn't as thrilled with their dishes (they did like them though). However, the restaurant was definitely on the pricey side.

We wanted to find a genuine cicchetti bar without tourists but close to our hotel. This is the place. Make sure you try the gamberetti.

Loved this place. The woman at the counter sliced the ham and cheese for my friend's sandwich with a huge knife right off the block. There were gorgeous cicchetti with gooseberries, pistachios, fresh cheese, artichokes and olives. Can't wait to go back when I visit Venice again!

We were told about this wine bar by our guide and my husband made me promise to bring him back some wine from the Veneto region and this place delivered! The cichetti serve when they open around 4pm are remarkable and the wine recommendations they made were spot on!

I searched this place out due to other excellent reviews. The chicetti were excellent. The pistachio cream was delicious, as was the gorgonzola and walnut and the one with the fish eggs. Very friendly staff. No seats and an super shop to boot.

Very cool wine shop where you can try great Italian wines by the glass. We had the best wines here during our whole stay here and only for 3 euro. The food is also incredibly cheap. You can even take them outside and look over the water. They also have ciccheti (small finger foods.) The foods were good, not incredible,... More

Gia Schiavi is the best place for an afternoon bite and a nice glass of wine. Some of the best cicchetti are pistachio paste with paprika sprinkles, and the salmon with parmesan. Very nice panini also, if you want a little more to eat. I stop here every time I'm in town.

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.
