“Sandwiches and pigeons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The place was ok. A sandwich place with good coffee. Very much an Italian place. One of our waiters was a very handsome guy and the one that attended us a very ugly and fat one. :) Very Italian and great for a brunch.

Just beware of the pigeons. The hosts seem to allow pigeons to enter their small place. One of the flew over us and crashed in the window just in front of our coffee. Not a nice thing to see (specially if you don't like this ugly flying things).

“Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Busy thoroughfare & cafe but great atmosphere. Handy for breakfast & a cheaper alternative to some of the whopping prices being charged for breakfast at the hotels. Good choice for lunch & a table outside if you can grab it!

“It's Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Countering the other reviewers we gave it a try and ate panini for lunch in this place. What is rude for others to us was just Italian and it was courteous enough. One thing it wasn't was pretentious but the price was according to that.

Trust the locals wherever you go, they say, and there were a lot in here.

One funny thing is that pigeons sometimes join you in the inside of the bar but they are also everywhere and they'll be kicked out in no time.

“Great people watching with an outside table”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stopped here for lunch after the Doge's Palace tour. It was close and convenient and in Rick Steve's guidebook. They had a nice selection of salads, pastas, and sandwiches. They also served a good cappuccino. We sate outside and it was a great location for people watching. A little accordian player even came by and serenaded us. Service is quick and curteous at this lunch stop.

“Pleasantly Surprised.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were looking for a quick lunch before catching the train on our last day in Venice, and after searching for one that was open at 11:15 on a Saturday morning we were relieved to find Bar Verde. I had the Panini Rustica with prosciutto, smoke mozzarella, eggplant and mushrooms and it was very good. My husband has the Genoese sandwich with ham, onion and cheese on a rosemary chibata bread, also very good. The service was slow (but not rude) and we worried that it wouldn't come in time for us to get back and catch the train but it all worked out well. Prices were not out of line with everything else in Venice and the sandwiches were very good so it was worth it not to have to eat the food on the train!
