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
