When it comes to cicchetti here truly is no better place in Venice than Gia Schiavi in Dorsoduro. Everyone grabbing a bite from the counter along with an ombra (little wine) or spritz. You either eat the sandwiches straight by the bar or you sit outside in the street - on the wall, on the steps - right by the canal. I always go back, it makes the perfect mini lunch or afternoon treat after walking the backstreets of Venezia.
(Indoors it's plates & glasses, outdoors disposable plates & papercups.)

We stopped by one lunchtime at the end of April following some research on TripAdvisor where it seemed to be highly recommended. We weren’t particularly hungry, having had a decent breakfast at the hotel but wanted to sample the atmosphere at this lovely, ciccetti bar. We arrived at a good time as the place hadn’t yet got busy and we took our places at the bar where we ordered five ciccetti and a couple of glasses of wine. I wanted to try the Amarone wine as I like reds but ones that are quite full-bodied and not too dry. My husband ordered a Chianti. Both wines were really nice and the ciccetti were lovely, tasty little snacks. The bill was €12 which we thought was good value, bearing in mind my wine cost €5. We were amazed at the hundreds of different wines for sale on the shelves and saw people coming in to buy bottles which were nicely wrapped to take out. By the time we left the place was really busy and people were taking their snacks and drinks outside to enjoy in the sunshine. Be aware that it is standing only. A great experience whilst wandering round Venice.

Can't say enough good things about the cicchetti at this totally charming place by the canal at Fondamenta Nani in Dorsodura. Get your wine and Aperol, stand inside or outside, and enjoy! the best cicchetti in town and at an excellent price. Now this is the best of Venice with locals and students from nearby university, hardly a tourist in sight.

It is an over-crowded typical venetian restaurant. Lots of locals eat and drink here all day long. Great chichetti! Fair wines. Reasonable prices.
Worth visiting.
