We have had a quick snack at the Bar XIXI today - it IS a snack bar, don't expect a restaurant.

The people are Chinese (?) and speak very good English. They are very serviceminded and make a great cup of espresso and good sandwiches & pizzas.

When you travel with children, you feel very lucky to find a place like this where the kids love everything on the menu and the people are friendly and serviceminded. We'll be back for breakfast before we leave tomorrow.

Came across Bar XIXI on our first night in Venice. It was late, we had spent quite a while traveling and we were really hot and hungry. We had a quick look around where we were staying and this was the only place that appeared to be open. We had to balance my usual obsessive nature to only visit places highly recommended on tripadvisor vs our hunger.

We had a slice of take away pizza each which was ok. When you're really hungry most things are passable and it was just nice to be in Venice on our honeymoon eating pizza. on the Rialto bridge. But in reality, the pizza was thick bread style dough jazzed up with cheese, tomato and veg and warmed up in a microwave after being out for who knows how long.

What to say in conclusion? We were hungry and it filled a hole, and we have good memories of our first night in Venice but compared to the amount of places selling really amazing well priced Italian style pizza to take away or eat in (such as Antico Forno or Da Mamo) then we could only recommend eating here if you are short for time, or it's late and nowhere else.

Try harder XIXI - there's lot's of places to look at to see how pizza should be made!
