Stand in front of the counter and sample from the fantastic offer displayed in front of you. My suggestion: at least one of each, if you can! The place is cheap and awesome. Do not wait noon to avoid overcrowding and bring cash.

Went based on reviews. Expected little as it's on the main drag. Very welcoming guy behind the bar, good spritz, good food, not bad price, what's not to like, also frequented by locals, gotta be tried

Taking to consideration the location, very center but starting to be a bit off the crowds the prices are simply enjoyable . Aperol /spritz 2,50, small “tapas” 1,50, while you can have spritz for 7 in the touristic locations. The place is very typical, no...More

We very much enjoyed stumbling across this fantastic bar on the canal. The lovely girl behind the bar was friendly and welcoming, as was the owner. Great selection of tapas, eat and drink what you want, when you want - no pressure and CHEAP!

We stumbled across this place whilst wandering around the city. We received a warm welcome and drank some of the nicest wine I've had in a while. We chose a selection of cichetti which were all delicious. The bill at the end was a shock...More

Came across this bar while wandering around the city. Called in for a drink, very atmospheric, looks as if has remained unchanged for decades. The wine we had was excellent, and as it was early afternoon we succumbed to the cichitti: Italian tapas, so tempting...More

This was a super place for cicchetti and drinks! We went there three times in the end as the polpette were amazing. Really loved the squid and quiche too. Some great flavours and the drinks were really reasonable too. The bar staff were real stars...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
