On a recent trip to Venice we were trying to find some of the classic bacari, Venetian wine bars, and based on a book we had it was one of the top 10. After getting caught in a downpour we were glad to find this little gem. We immediately loved the cozy feel of the restaurant. The selection of food at the bar was almost too much to chose from. Everything I picked was fantastic, from the grilled calamari to the different types of bruschetta. My wife ordered the sea food pasta and it was simply to die for. Even our 10 year old dug right into it.
The waitress spoke great English and was really helpful. The prices were also good considering that it is Venice.
One thing - when you try to have a late lunch make sure you get there before 3 PM....they close at 3:30 PM and re-open late.
