Loved the cichetti and aperol spritz... and managed to get seats inside (air conditioned) to save us from scorching heat!! Cost performance-wise I think one of the best in Venice. Taking 1 star off as they didn’t have all cichetti types left (some only 1-2...More

Strange mix of locals and tourists in this bar. Thank god there were some locals! As other reviews have noted it's cheap for Venice and there was a surprising amount of choice for vegetarians. Service was relatively friendly.

This establishment is incredibly small but offers great service and typically Venetian delights over a drink!

Best Aperol spritz ever ! We discovered this amazing bar when we came to see the place of construction of gondolas. The waitresses are quite friendly and efficient.

The typical hidden Venezian Osteria - in the calm street, view on the canal, and good and cheap services.

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.
