“Better than I could have imagined!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2014 NEW

I found out about this restaurant on line. It has no view, no music, no service [you order from the counter] and it only serves lunch, but the wines were delicious and the food was beautiful. We loved it and came twice. It is a place for locals - all the food is fresh, lovely open faced sandwiches. Since I have been home I have been trying to make sandwiches like the ones served there. It is not easy to find but if you go to the open air fresh market and ask, someone will probably help you. Cross the Rialto bridge and walk about 3 blocks and then turn left.

“Simple food and wine done very well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2014 NEW

The clue to the quality of All'Arco is the queue which stretches out the door. Join it! Grab a couple of glasses of good quality wine and some of the best cicchetti in Venice, all for very reasonable prices. Second only to La Cantina for me.

“The best sea food cicchetti ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2014

It's a small place, not a fancy one and always very crowded so you can't really expect someone to come up to you and babysit for your time there: you have to get on the line and make your order. The food is incredible, amazing, an unforgetable experience eating there!

“Great cicchetti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2014

Authentic cicchetti and cheap wine, was always busy when we went but part of the fun is eating on the street outside!
