Rustic and fabulous! A place you have to visit for a great ciccettie and glass of prosecco. Mix the locals and enjoy the atmosphere of Venice.

Off the street, a busy, bustling wine bar with snacks for a great break. Go to San Eleosuyne (sp?) and take the alley right behind you.

It was a very authentic experience, we really had no clue what we were ordering but it all looked delicious. It was crowded even during an off time but that was part of the experience. It pretty much only has standing room for a quick meal and drink but overall great time!

Found this bar by accident (a little lost to be fair) but what a delight! Very welcoming to tourists and helpful with my zero Italian! Bar food great and very cheap, thank you. When other places try to rip the tourists off this is a gem.

We found this small bar by chance. My wife and I crossed the Rialto bridge and we were looking for somewhere to have a drink. We sat at a bar and while we were enjoying a much sort after drink we noticed the All'Arco down a side road opposite were we were sitting. My wife said that place looks busy... More

We went to this bar today for the second time. The cichetti were delicious as was the Prosecco. The service is good. The owners are friendly. It's very small in there but that's the only down side. Can't wait to go there again.

Probably All'Arco doesn't need another review, but after an exhaustive search of Venice's cicchetti bars (purely in the interest of science) we decided this was the best, narrowly edging out Alsquero. Also the staff are especially pleasant, unstressed and friendly. What to try? Everything.

My wife and I went on a Wine Tour and this was one of the 5 Cicchetti restaurants we went to and this absolutely was our favorite of the five. So was our experience that we went the next day for lunch on our own. Definite favorite in Venice! Enjoy!

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
