It is a warm and very small tavern offering small bites of sandwiches with good italian ham and wine. It seems very popular with the local student population.

Came here while I was waiting for my bus to the airport. Nice location on the canal, friendly owner and great food. I would recommend the puppa burger - basically bite size beef tartar in a bun

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
