We chanced upon this tiny cicheti bar (Venetian snack bar) on our last day in Venice and it is a surprise find in a very touristy city. We had a good feeling about this place as it is packed with locals and indeed the food lived up to the expectation with very reasonable price. Eating in (standing next to the... More

To be honest, we decided to have our dinner here as we were exhausted and considering the vicinity of the canal, everything else was super expensive or closed. We decided on pizza as it was the cheapest (and out last day in Venice, so the budget was running low). The waitress was very nice and friendly, service was quick, pizza... More

We chanced upon this little cute restaurant during our day-long sight-seeing expedition (if I may call so) in Venice. We needed some snacks and wine to refresh ourselves after almost 3 hours of strolling around visiting many a spots. And the Ostaria dai Zemei did absolutely justice to our needs. The tapas and sandwiches were delicious and the wine was... More

We stumbled across this by chance on our first day in Venice and only had (a very nice) glass of wine outside (inside was packed). The second time we stood inside and had a selection of wine and crostini which were all excellent and value for money, we had numerous crostini and 2 glasses of wine each and ate for... More

Very nice osteria, food and wine are marvellous, strongly recommended. Tiny place, too small I'd say, but spending 20 minites there is worthed.

We found this little corner restaurant on our way to San Marco Square from the cruise ship. The Panini sliders caught my eye, but it was their wide array of fresh made crostini that was the star. We had four crostini and two glasses of wine for 9 euro. The staff was friendly and helpful too. If they have them,... More

I had lunch with friends and we all shared various crostinis. all interesting, great combination of flavours from the classic to unusual - but not too outrageous (eg tomato and olives, chopped broccoli stalk topped with anchovies, salami and spicy pepperoncini). the place was busy but the twin brothers who run the place are friendly and they remember our orders...
