We came here twice on our stay for a late lunch/beer. The cicchetti is amazing and varied, the prices are very fair. The staff are incredibly hard-working and diligent, we were never kept waiting and we were impressed at how they remembered all different guests/who...ordered what. If we returned to Venice, we’d make a beeline for here first thing!More

Best cicchetti in Venice! Staff were so friendly and helpful in making recommendations of which to order. The food and wine was fabulous. Would definitely come back if in Venice again. Best food and wine of our trip and great value too.

We have been visiting Venice for 7 years now and we found this place in 2018, it’s one of, if not our absolute favourite cicchetti bars in Venice. It can be so easy to find a bad spot in Venice, this is an absolute must!...On our return now, the staff, a young gentleman in particular always remembers us which makes it so personable. The wines are fabulous and so is the cicchetti, the best in Venice! We can’t wait to get back. Prices are so reasonable - €5 glass of wine €2 per cicchetti. We wouldn’t ever go to Venice and not go here.More

Super little place with local guests. We went with “shome” guided by the knowledgable Matteo, as a part of a food and wine tour, visiting different places, enjoying different drinks and food. Combine food and drink with meeting a friendly informative local and book matteo...from “shome”. We would come back and recommend you to try this if you want to hang with the localsMore

The ostaria is very well located, quite close to Rialto bridge. Their crostinis are excellent and they have a good variety to try different flavors. Also got a very authentic apperol spritz there. Totally recommended!

We went there by the recommendation of our hotel, and what a good experience it was! The staff was really nice and the wine really good. The staff started by suggesting some small bites and the wine, we went by those and we didn't go...wrong! Overall, an excellent local experience with nice food and atmosphere.More

Very good Venetian crostini and spriz too. A little poor staff, but good service nonetheless. The price is in the norm.

One of the best snack bars in Venice we have visited. There is a wide choise of Cicchetti and very kind staff. It's definetely worth visiting this place.

“All the Venice, but not us” after I asked for a beverage while waiting for a table. It sounded like an arrogance over customer experience in a very hot day. Just ruined overall experience (or at least what you would expect from Italian hospitality) 🤷‍♂️...good Venetian spritz for very good price on the other hand.More

Our hotel recommended this place for cichetti speciallty and yes its was really delicious. Simple place, you can choose the cichetti in many flavors like fish, shrimps, ham, baccala etc. I love the spicy fish and the shrimps. Paired with Aperol spritz… voila!! Perfect lunch...or snack. Great value and a taste of real Venice.More

We visited here at least once a day during a week in Venice. Excellent coffee, wine and delicious cichetti - small snacks. Dare you to have only one! Friendly to all. Often full of locals - they know the good spots of course.

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

No seats inside but they put some tables outside that of course around lunch time are taken. But the place is so worthy that you can grab something and find another public space to seat and enjoy.
