We were only able to visit this osteria once as it was hired for private parties the other days. It was a great experience, the music was local and authentic, and the food and wine were reasonably priced. Not to mention that the location is...More

Finally found a watering hole where we were welcomed not targeted and bilked like meddlesome tourists. We were able to taste the wines before we committed – one of them had to be opened. The proprietors – a man and a woman were dancing to...More

Great bar with great value Aperol Spritz, Wine and Prosecco. Visited 2 nights in a row and was always greeted by a friendly face and our effort of speaking Italian was reciprocated by their effort in English. Good value and tasty cicheti too.

This place is a real gem and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Venice. Great wines, chicetti and a fantastic location to sit and watch the world go by over one of vehicles bridges. Didn't want to leave!

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
