The spritz is super cheap and strong too! A refreshing drink on a hot afternoon that was hard to stop at just one. The tapas were just as surprising and ridiculously priced too. Full of flavour and a diverse range to pick from!

You can get a small glass of various types of wine for €1.20 and upwards, so you can go through a few different ones without getting plastered. Raboso, anyone?

And if you don't want to sit down. Too popular so very crowded. Provide tasty food at very low prices. It is on the tourist radar.

THIS is my idea of a good time. We happened across this place accidentally when we were very, very lost (so easy to do in Venice!) There were lots of twenty-somethings hanging around outside drinking wine from plastic cups so we thought we'd join them. Chardonnay was 1,20euros for a cup. Amazing! And so good. We sat on the wall... More

Lovely small osteria with delicious whines and nice small apertivos. It is located next to the ship yard in a small little street away from the crazyness inside Venezia. Go there!

Had a glass of Prosecco and a spritz with really delicious ciccetti freshly made. Really nice staff and excellent venue off the beaten track. Felt quite smug that we had found it.

Right opposite the Squero where gondolas are repaired. Lovely place where all the locals gather around 5-6 in the afternoon...for prosecco or spritz plus cichetti (snacks). Very reasonably priced..Great local flavour. Nice change from tourist haunts.

A nice peaceful spot overlooking a small canal and gondola workshop so decent atmosphere. There are a few seats inside or perch on the wall by the canal and enjoy ciccetti for about a euro each (we had 3 each) and a glass of spritz for about 2.50 - great lunch and a bargain! If only we had this kind... More

A lovely place in venice. A perfect place to enjoy aperol, bruchetta and the view of the old gondola wharf. The best place to enjoy the "dolce far niente".

This place is isolated from the turmoil of the crowds, alongside a quiet canal facing the Gondola yard. Very friendly staff and the food is very fresh. Nothing fancy or overpriced there. Just a very nice moment to take a break, a delicious snack and fresh wine/Spritz by the water.
