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.

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.

We originally stopped in here for a umbra rosso and glass of prosecco and maybe a cicchetti or two (glass of house red, Italian champagne and tapas) - and ended up staying most of the night! Venetians go out for a giro d'ombra (wine stroll)...More

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
