“Nice place for a pre dinner drink and cicchetti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

A decent variety of by the glass wines and good selection of cicchetti (not all fried like some places). You could even make a light meal here with the cicchetti. They also have a good offering of bottled wines for sale if you want something to take with you. They will give you plastic glasses if you want to take your drink outside and drink along the canal. This is a popular place so don't be surprised if the cicchetti supply runs low later in the evening.

“Best baccaro in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Just the best... near to a canal at Dorsoduro area, the most charming area of Venice. Incredible atmosphere, big variety of wines, tastefull ciccheti and different every day and also cheaper than other baccari. Locals come here for a break... someone suggested to order 'vino fragolini', a wine that the owner has under the bar. I liked it very much, unique sweet and fruity taste. I visited many baccari in Venice, I think this is the best...

“Overhyped”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We have been to this popular bar before and it is living on it's past reputation. The quality of food has declind markedly and the owners are as miserable as ever

“Extraordinary Cicchetti”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Don't miss this place if you're in Venice. The tiny bites (cicchetti) they make are amazing. Buy a bunch and eat them by the bridge infront of the place.

“Cicchetti Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

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.)
