“Cichetti per tutti!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Just steps from the Rialto fish market, this little bar satisfies in every way including friendly patient service in a joyous atmosphere of eating and drinking. Be sure to try the "baccala mantecato" with or without garlic; it is a codfish aioli typical in the Veneto and better than it sounds...in fact it is habit forming so if you like fish you'll love it. Our recent visit was after January 1 when the fishermen are on holiday but All'Arco managed to come up with some good alternatives including a focaccia with marinated eggplant, cheese and prosciutto and cichetti with radicchio of Treviso. Simple, creative and friendly....have a party.

“great vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Really cool little place for some cicheti. Busy spot so you may not get a window sill or table outside but the people working here are all very friendly and helpful. They were quite low on food when we got here, but what we tried was very nice

“Since much fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Our first 'chicetti' experience and so much fun. Delicious octopus, fresh sardines and scrumptios prosecco. It's well worth the scrum to get past the locals.

“excellent snack on the fly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

A glass of local wine with crostini and/or tramezzini served with a smile and at prices conform venetian standards will re-energize you in no time. Seating limited though. Be there early otherwise it will be crowded with locals concluding their visit of the nearby food market.
