This local bar never fails to delight. Always packed but unfailingly friendly there is a fantastic Atmosphere: cosy and warm in winter or in summer falling onto pavement or right onto the bridge - whilst watching venetians jostle to buy produce from the vegetable barge...More

This place was around the corner from our apartment and a "go-to" for an afternoon drink. We stuck with Spritzs, which were well made and served with an olive and potato chips, but there was an obviously nice selection of wine by the glass and...More

Decent prices, great choices and tasting before. Got a very nice white whine recommended. The bartender had us try different styles before choosing the right whine for us. Super nice. Had a great night. Cozy atmosphere and nice music with the right volume

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.

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

Dorsoduro / Accademia
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
