This small bar/cafe is just infront of a canal overlooking the busy gondola boatyard where gondolas are built and repaired (Squero di San Trovaso). This is our favorite bar in Venice. It is cosy inside (few tables and chairs huddles together) and one cannot stop...More

Great place to stop by, always crowded with people. Good price given how overall expensive Venice is, this was pleasant surprise. Recommend

Although there's seating indoors, the square outside has all the atmosphere. It's a great place to try local dishes such as dried cod and Amarone risotto. Decent wine list - must drink the Sartori wines - from Verona.

Cool little place. Good wine. Good cichetti. Good crowd. Be brace, and just point to order. There isn't anything in there that will kill you. Lol

Called in for refreshment before visiting the Galleria dell'Accademia. English breakfast tea was available and the wine and spritzer selection was very good. Lots of little appetisers at very reasonable prices.

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

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.
