“A Venetian Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We discovered this gem of a place three years ago when we stayed at The Hotel Popodopoli just across the canal and we have been back every time we have visited Venice since.
It's not fancy, as others have commented, but it does give you an unique Venetian experience rubbing shoulders with the locals.
Last month we were in Venice , and on our first morning the first place we headed for was Bocareto Da Lele. At 10.00am business was brisk and it felt so natural to have wine and a crusty sandwich even at that time standing outside in the sunshine. Prices haven't changed - who can complain at €2.20 for two wines and two sandwiches. The wines available each day are posted every morning on the small chalk board on the wall.
It is run by two gentlemen, the one in front serving always has a smile, and Papa in the back is the veritable sandwich factory.
We will definitely be visiting the Bocarelto Da Lele on our next visit.

“Please visit here before leaving Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place is fantastic, okay it's not a restaurant, there are no seats - but there is a beautiful canal next to it to sit by and watch the fish. The ambiance is just awesome - locals pushing to the front (but in a nice way), the food and drink is just so cheap as the other reviews have said 60 cents for wine (cannot be beaten)!! The sandwich rolls are lovely, we had 3 rounds of drinks and sandwiches and there was change out of 14 euros for 3 of us. Please a really must see, perhaps not in the rain though!

“Simplicity is underrated~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

A small, simple, extremely pleasant little stop as you explore the nooks and crannies of Venice. Buy a small meat & cheese platter, have a drink and enjoy it outside as you watch boats navigate the canal... what could be better? Mostly locals here, very friendly. If you don't speak Italian, no worries... failing anything else, you can just point-and-pay. Inexpensive, small snacks here, that's the way to go. I sure miss this place!

“Perfect Venetian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We enjoyed 2 glasses of wine for 60 cents each, which is the cheapest I've ever had and it was delicious. The place was full of locals standing and chatting. A great value and a true Venetian experience.

“Simply good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Very good basic sandwiches for nice price of 0,99 € for example you can pay 5€ for capuccino few streets away. Bar is very small and full of locals and students. Took drink and food and sit in front of at stairs it is best away to start your walk.
