This is an historical place of Venice, the nicest of this square, which is one of the most animated of Venice.

Have you red Anthony Capella's The Food of Love? Well, Venice's Il Caffe is how I imagine Bruno's friend caffe. A huge copper espresso machine from a distant past (at least it looks like that), tiny place (there are many tables outside where it is fun sitting and watching everyday's life in Venice with huge crowds of tourists missing) and...

We visited here, as part of a night out in this area of the Dorsoduro. It did a great spritz, at a very reasonable price. We would have stayed longer but it was a cold evening, and with it being so popular there was no space inside, so we were sat out in the main square.

Me and my mum came for brunch, had a tuna and olive sandwich and a mozzarella and tomato sandwich - both packed with filling and very tasty. Them along with 2 cappuccinos and a fresh squeezed orange juice came to less than £10. We've been back twice and would strongly recommend :)

Maybe we caught this highly regarded place on a bad day ? Short tempered staff. Food ok. Beer ok, Waiter seemed a bit out of his depth. Shouted at like a naughty school boy when I inadvertently tried to use the "facilities" (unaware it was being cleaned). Came here once - which was once too many.

Caffee Rosso is very nice place on Campo Santa Margherita. There is always lots of people as it is so nice to seat at a table outside and have a look at the Campo and its people. Drinks are good, service as well so, it's one of our favorite places in Venice.

€12 for 4 aperativo drinks - outside tables. Highly recommended in an otherwise expensive Venice. Would go again.......

Quintessential Venice. Our Airbnb host recommended Cafe Rosso for snacks and drinks, and we ended up seeing her there a few hours later! Cafe Rosso has a huge outdoor seating area and a good range of food/drink options, so grab a table outside and enjoy a spritz or some wine. Service is a bit lacking, so would be great to... More

We had breakfast in this caffe where we pay around 5 euros for 2 excellent croissants with apricot jam and one espresso and one espresso macchiato. The waitress were really kind and we had a super start for our day in Venice. Pigeons will be a bit around you... But they are everywhere in Venice!

Stopped for an early evening spritz. Seemed to be surrounded by students, which was fine. Service was fine and we did a bit of people watching without the usual high price tag.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
