Very nice cafe (espresso 1€, latte macchiato 2€) at the bar inside, cool Aperol Spritz (2,50€)... And all that just a stone throw away from Rialto bridge. Unfortunately we were on the way to dinner so we couldn't try the tapas like food - but for sure they looked super yummy! Friendly fast staff, cramed with locals (with 7 people... More

A really friendly place to grab a glass of wine and try some of the local snacks. The wine-range has something for everyone and the staff are really helpful and patient in explaining what is on offer. The place is bedecked with photos of twins, which might have something to do with the name of the Osteria, "...dai Zemei" ?... More

We enjoyed Cicchetti (tapas) here and a glass of wine. It was good food and delicious wine (Müeller-Thurgau).

Came here after our hotel recommended this place. We came here early evening and had a great selection of cicchetti which our friendly waitress served after we discussed with her what types of flavours we prefer. The selection she brought were mouthwatering and we were not deluded! The wine is amazing as well. We loved the atmosphere outside and despite... More

Asked for cicchetti to go. All of them were very good and fresh, better than other similar places. Try to eat there in the evening a few tes but they close between 7 and 8.

You gotta have cicchetti in Venice. We think its most like our happy hours in the United States. This place has some really good cicchetti but the drinks were over priced. Service was average. Not as good as the other cicchetti places we went

Wish we had something like this in the US. Wow crostini is only 1€ and wine is between 2-4€. Awesome place just to hang out and get in a snack and some good conversation. Really tiny but it's like that in Venice. Aperol spritz and prosciutto? Yes please! In the San Polo area near Rialto bridge

Really tasty cichetti, with lots of choice-they have a menu plus daily specials! There aren't many seats so you may have to wait, but it's definitely worth it! Authentic food which makes for a perfect light lunch!

.....without having a light lunch at dai Zemei would not count as a real visit in the town! All those small crostinini from the buffet are delicious and the selection of open wines a dream. I could stay here all day long with friends or simply a book. The service is so friendly and you feel after some time there... More
