“Workmans cafe -Venice style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This tiny place was full of smelly older Italian men, like the equivilent of our greasy spoon cafes. Unnerving for a young lady like me but the experience was good.

Yes the drinks are cheap, merlot 60cents, presecco 80cents

BUT the servings are maybe 100ml maximum! So you need a few of them.

The crusty rolls with parma ham, salami etc are nice but quite small so again, you need 2 or 3.

The best part of this place is that there is a long stretch of steps down to the canal where you can sit in the sun and eat. We saw a bride and groom go by in a gondola so it was a great atmosphere

Give it a try if you're interested in local cultures

The salami made my fiance very sick but I was fine. Maybe best avoided by the elderly or by pregnant ladies

Nice and polite staff

“Must hangout there.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Best bite, best wine, best price, best place to eat on the street. Station for mostly local students, youngsters and artistas. Get your bites and wines, hang out by the canal. Enjoy the view and check the people around. This is a real place for real people.

“Cheap but good quality fuel stop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I had noted this from TripAdvisor & it was just a few minutes from our hotel. We looked in every day on our way back from a days exploring for a quick drink & mini sandwich. As previously stated, sarnie & 2 drinks e3. Have to say the sarnies are excellent - small but crusty bread absolutely packed with really good quality pork, salami, other stuff. Just pick from the selection available.
Very friendly, always a nice crowd - stand or sit on the canal steps.

“Absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a B&B 2 mins from here and stopped in several times.The owner even began to recognise us!
This is a fantastic little bar for a glass of wine and a quick snack perched on the steps of the canal.
In such an expensive city it was a treat to have this nearby!

“Don't be shy - the locals won't bite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a really fabulous little bar that is full of locals who will welcome you wholeheartedly and help you with your Italian.

Two lovely glasses of Merlot, a couple of fresh salami bread rolls - all for 3 euros - excellent value and a great place to be.
