“Get crustini, stay for dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

We had a delightful time people watching while noshing on a nice selection of snacks. Decided to turn our snacking into fiber and ordered a pizza with prosciutto, artichokes, mushrooms which was very tasty as well. Quality food even though it is in the heart of a major tourist thoroughfare.

“Tapas style lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Sat down at this wonderful little place and the waitress could converse in most languages! We ordered a glass each of wine and askedvher to select a plate of crostinis. They were different, tasty, fresh and just what we needed with our glass of wine. We had to order seconds!

“Pop in for a snack!!! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We saw this place on TA! Went in and had a delicious snack! We opted to stand as it is cheaper if you do that! Both times we stopped by the staff were helpful and friendly! I would reccomend it if you are in the mood for light meal and a drink!

“Best Cicchetti in Venice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a bang for your Euro. Great for lunch, not too heavy and well priced. Stand inside and order from bar. Had about 7 Cicchetti and 3 drinks between 2 adults for €18. Place was busy, servers were not overly friendly but food was good and very authentic. Seemed to be frequented by locals.

“Great Snack Stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

After days of stuffing myself with huge portions of Italian food, I was thrilled to find Ostaria dai Zemei, operated by twin brothers (who have posted tons of pictures on the walls sent to them by twins from all over the world)! I ordered a capuccino and a wonderful 'mini sandwich' which really hit the spot, and didn't make a dent in my wallet. This is a very tiny snack bar, one that is well visited by the locals who hang out with wine and cicchetti. An added benefit is the knowledge there is also a bathroom! You can find Ostaria dai Zemei by crossing over the Rialto Bridge and taking a left on Ruga Rialto - Enjoy!
