“Wonderful cichetti, value, and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great little place on a picturesque canal across from the gondola workshop. Best cichetti we had in Venice - the crostini was outstanding (and only 1 euro each). The wine was also very good (1.2 euros each). So it was not only excellent food and wine, it was also a great value. And as a bonus, the cleanest and nicest WC we came across in Venice. Can't go wrong at this place.

“Best Venice happy hour!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were at Osteria Al Squero this past week and had the most amazing time. The service was the best I had the entire time I was in italy (1 week). The waitress took her time with us, she recommended excellent wines and spritz; including the best crostinis in town.
I regret not going back the next day:(

“Chicchetti on the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Great little place with, shock horror, cheap drinks and super snacks in Venice. Grab your spritz, and a plate of crostini, constantly refreshed from the kitchen and sit in the canal wall watching the boatyard opposite at work. Lots of locals popping in. The owner is really laid back and carefully prepares all the drinks individually. Drink and a snack for less than five Euros.
