We visited this cicchetti bar once with a local guide and just had to return another night on our own. They serve an amazing Raboso -- a chilled sparkling red wine. But their cicchetti is the star. A variety that includes the most delicious polpette (meatballs), calamari, sarde fritte (fried sardines), and at least a dozen other selections. The staff... More

We had house wines and a few cichetti bites between us. Everything was tasty, such amazing value (2 glasses of wine & 4 bites for under €10), we went back twice. More of a local crowd too. Go!

This place was hard to find, I walked passed it three times! Look for the Vodafone shop.... It's behind it! Eventually I found it and went in! The staff were friendly, one woman spoke good English which was helpful! It was fresh food and a nice chilled out place to snack.... Very authentic and worth a visit.

This place is quite hidden, it was full of locals and we are so happy to have tried the cichetti's here, simply delicious and very reasonable. The staff were friendly and patient. The atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed discovering some new flavours. Delicious meatballs:) and marinated fish.

We stopped by Osteria Alla Ciurma right around lunchtime to some delicious street food. However, the line was extremely long, so we decided to stop by a little later, which was a great idea. We ended up having the place to ourselves and were able to take our time and try a few different things. We ended trying up their... More

When we travel, we always find out where the locals eat, you avoid the excessive surcharge and the food is genuine to the area. CICCHETTI (pronounced "Chikettee") is very traditional to the people of Venice, either for lunch, or a quick nibble with a grass of wine or apperitivo on your way home from work. It consists of a cliche... More

Good food and drink in this busy bar full of locals. Would certainly recommend that you go along with or without a tour guide.

Searching for a cicchetti bar, we came acoss this cozy place. We tried the calamari, shrimp, tuna meatball and smoked tuna. Everything was delicious and great wine, too. Prices were very reasonable.

Staying in San Polo

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.
