DELICIOUS cicchetti- lots of options of toppings. Super cheap and delicious wine! Long lines but move fairly quickly. Grab your food and sit by the canal and have a lovely meal :)

Simple, fun and cheerful place to grab a drink and a snack. Great prices and small, but nice selection of apetizers. Take a drink outside while watching the small boatyard across the canal repairing gondolas.

This a small place that reminds me of the tapas bars in Spain. They don't have a wide variety of tapas, maybe 8-10 different kinds, but they're tasty and satisfying. Coupled with an Aperol spritz and one has a delightful afternoon snack that will hold...More

Absolutely fabulous little bar on the canal in Dorsoduro area. By far the cheapest place we have had drinks or eaten. Bought two drinks and four cicchetti (delicious little breads with toppings) €6 in total. Atmosphere is great - prosecco is delicious and dirt cheap....More

A place to go for Spritz lovers. This place offers good value for money drinks and home made crostini (mini Italian sandwiches).

Walked past this place and realised it must have something special, it was queued out the door and along the camel, everyone drinking spritz and eating lunch. I later searched best place for a spritz in Venice and this one came up high on trip...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

If you mean what time are drink prices reduced like in some places in Europe, I don't think they do it Al Squero. The prices are reasonable enough there anyway. If you are in Venice most places will make you feel happy if... More

Al Squero is the only Osteria in Venice exactly in front of the Ancient Squero of San Trovaso. There is no other place where appreciating from its window the construction or restoration of original Venetian gondolas. It is a cozy and comfortable place where you can share with friends a glass of Italian wine and taste an appetizing “cicchetto” at a small price. The selection of wines you can taste or buy at Al Squero comes from small regional wine firms of Friuli, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, so that it is guaranteed unique care at the quality and distinctiveness of their products.
