A small place by the bridge of the same name. Good simple cichetti, nice wine by the glass. A side counter is a great place to watch people passing.

We tried one each of all the 4 varieties of polpette and the fried mozzarella with anchovies and a spritz. This was a delicious and inexpensive taste of Venice. Sit by the window for a canal and bridge view. The people watching was fantastic. We...More

This restaurant was recommended by our guide on Venice Free Walking Tours. We're glad we took her advice. Order a Spritz and a plate full of the various small bite items. A great light lunch for two for under 15 Euros. Plus a canal view...More

Came here for an early evening prosecco to start our night. Every time we walked by this place it was full both inside and out with people having a drink. Really good vibe.

This adorable local combines quality regional wines, light bites and warm service. The perfect mid-afternoon pit stop for tourists and locals alike. Take a seat in the window looking out onto a canal and watch the world go by.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
