“Great place”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We ate there on two occasionsas we loved it when we came across it the day before so went again at lunch time, lots of cicchetti to choose from and if your not sure what is on them ( we had a 15 year old teenager who hates fish and was bothered there would be hidden anchovies on them) and she absolutely loved it in there, and the food atmosphere .. Only quite small inside and there are no seats but seating outside, we were unlucky with weather so we were quite happy keeping warm inside sampling the wine and lots of chittetti ..very welcoming staff and clean .

“Great Little Spot for Light Dinner or Snacks”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a great little spot. No seats, SRO [you must stand]. Excellent and succulent selection of cicchetti, all reasonably priced. Tiny kitchen prep area kept really clean [as a former restaurant owner, I appreciate that]. Our docent on a ContextItaly tour took us here for a short stop [snack + prosecco], and returned later on our own that p.m. for dinner before the opera. As most people say, the prices are downright cheap, especially when you consider this is on a ‘main’ road. Don’t let the location that it’s on a ‘main’ road and the tiny space inside discourage you. We found the clientele mostly locals, although given the popularity and write-ups on TA, that won’t last much longer.

“So Much Fun”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Recommended by Lonely Planet, whose restaurant picks this trip have been sound, as well as by the folks at our hotel. Many tasty cicchetti - those with salmon as well as the anchovy ones were delicious. Add a "spritz," grab a seat outside and you're golden.

“The Real Deal”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Fantastic Bar snacks for €1.50 each - perfect way to break up the day and have a crafty Spritz and a comfort stop - near the Rialto market
