We had one of the Antipasti dishes for two. Ended up being our best meal in Venice. Everything is perfect. To begin with the location. Campo San Giacomo is still a place "owned" by the locals and even the passing through of the tourists hasn't...taken away the charm and tranquillity of the Campo. This is a place to sit down, and feel Venice.More

We came here thanks to a walking tour in the lonely planet guide. It recommended stopping here for the unfiltered prosecco which was delicious and it was in a lovely square which we were able to just relax with our drinks. The food also looked...very good!More

The location of this place is a typical Venetian piazza. We had stopped for spritz and chichetti before the lunch session. The service was good and the food was great. Loved the atmosphere. Great traditional Venetian ambience.

After a packed morning of sightseeing we needed lunch around 2:30 pm. We ate outside and had the cheese tray and Aperol Spritz. The cheese tray was good value for the amount and variety of cheese served - probably the best we’ve had in Europe...or the States! Our server was very friendly and attentive. The setting on Campo San Giacomo is lovely. Highly recommend!More

This place is an exception. Both the drinks and the food is of outstanding quality. Here you get the best spritz in Venice: The prosecco is self-produced. The service is very attentive and friendly. Beautiful outdoor seating area at a square. Highly recommended, many locals

Passing visit on last day of our short trip to Venice. Unfortunately realised as we were finishing up that we were about to miss our bus and had to run away. Staff were very friendly and accommodating considering our lack of understanding of the Italian...language. Talked about some terrible Scottish beers and enjoyed some smoked tuna as recommended by our host. Great bar.More

We stopped here and sampled a couple of types of cloudy prosecco, really delicious and our server took time to explain the differences and about the fermentation process. This place is situated in a lovely square if you have fine weather to sit outside. It...was a bit chilly when we visited and we had a lovely cosy, warm spot in the back room which was perfect. Really reasonable prices too.More

This place is well positioned to watch the activity in the campo. The panini and focaccia are tasty and the drinks are reasonably priced. The service is good.

Having a look around the Santa Croce area and we came across this wonderful little bar. It was such a lucky find. Clean and tidy not like some other places in Venice. Also very reasonably priced . To be recommended.

Traveling in August 2018, I found this location which we ate at back in 1998. I was surprised to see it still open. I noticed several local people here, and the square it is on is nice, as the local kids play outside here. (Soccer,...hid e and seek). There is a full menu, with lots of pizza, we opted for a pasta and speck dish, the pasta was homemade, as well as a veal in a lemon sauce. Both were outstanding, and the best we had in Venice. They did charge a "service charge" of 3 Euros. It was not the cheapest place, but worth it. The service, food quality, and ambiance all made this place up to be a great experience.More

We had a chat with the owner about opening hours etc. He said he closed down for a while in the summer because he "had been working hard and was very tired". I don't think you will know until you arrive! Good luck
