We had brunch here and wished we had found it sooner. The sandwiches were delicious with excellent fillings and the coffee and smoothies were awesome. It is only small but such good value and the staff are friendly and obliging. Very close to San Pantalon Church, which has an amazing ceiling and definitely worth a visit.

Only wanted a quick snack so popped into the Cafe Noir. Burgers were 4 euros 50 and were served with cheese on a toasted sesame bun complete with salad. A burger at the posher place just a few strides down the canal side was 14 euros albeit with bacon. No contest. Good service at Cafe Noir. Not posh eating but... More

We popped in here on our way back to our AirBnB for a couple of drinks. The drinks menu is pretty extensive and has something for everyone at pretty good prices.

We first tried Café Noir the night we arrived and we then had a drink there every night for the four nights we were in Venice. It was an easy 5 minute walk from our hotel. Lovely staff with a great choice of wines and cocktails. They have a brilliant selection of hot snacks served all night. They are open... More

This bar was fantastic! The sandwiches were tasty and the cocktails were unique and delicious. We had a typical Venetian "spritz" for very cheap and a couple of Moscow mules and tejitos (a mojito with vodka) they were phenomenal. I did see some people drinking wine, but I did not see much on the menu. The bartender and owner were... More

On our recent stay we visited this bar every evening. It was relaxed , buzzy and friendly. If you are looking for a bar in this area I would recommend it highly. Also a good selection of food and drinks including a great Guinness

Great place. Decent prices. We sat in the window and had real good sandwiches on hot bread ( baguette type) rocket, cheese and beef with Tartar sauce.... My Wife had turkey with rocket and hers was tasty too. Great food.. Guinness and 3 or four more beers. Very filling and nice welcome... Tommorow we will go again!

Lovely atmosphere. Nice mix of locals (students mainly) and tourists. Went both in the day and for drinks at night. Both times did not disappoint. Cheap tasty sandwiches which are big enough to share. And only 2.50 Euros for house wine or Prosecco! Ideal for a quick stop and a must for any students travelling near Dorsoduro.

Stumbled across Cafe Noir after getting lost in the maze of street of Venice - and what a find! The cafe was more of a bar at night and had a perfect atmosphere with a nice mix of locals and tourists. Would recommend to anyone who visits Venice.

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.
