Out of the way, small bacari serving cicchetti and wine. An excellent selection of very good quality wines at reasonable prices. Fun place to hang out, have small bites, get to know the locals. Definitely, non-touristy, another reason I loved it.

Went here for an early lunch as had heard great things on TA. The calamari and meatballs on particular were excellent and staff were pleasant. There were many locals popping in for drinks and food whilst we were there. Prices very reasonable. Would highly recommend.

They had the best selection of cichetti food - fried fresh anchovies, Italian (not American italian) meatballs, crostini style things - smoked swordfish with fresh ricotta, steamed... More

We love Cicchetti's and decided to create our own little tour to visit the best ones in Venice and this was the first place on our list. Unfortunately, we started at 8:30 and they were about to close... More

We found the Osteria Alla Ciurma bar on our first day and returned every afternoon, we enjoyed it so much. It is located within 1 minute from Rialto Bridge in San Polo, down a small side street. The two ladies serving were very friendly, the one spoke excellent English and was able to recommend some great wines. These were very... More

We had a casual, standing lunch with house wine and several cicchetti. The service was wonderful, food and wine were really nice and you can't beat the pricing. I definitely recommend a stop here; we might need to come back before we leave town.

Beautiful little wine bar that has delicious seafood and antipasti little nibbles that are appetising and filling. Rose house wine was on pint with a sweet and crisp palette. Extremely good value for money. Would definitely recommend to any foodie.

The wine was very tasty and cheap. The food unfortunately was cold and not fresh made. The atmosphere was nice and the owner is friendly.

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.
