“Comfortable, relaxing quick meal or drink”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a great spot to grab a quick bite to eat or a drink while doing some people watching. It's a favorite with the locals, you'll always see a few of them holding court at the front of the place or at the bar. Right next to the Ponti di Pugni and the vegetable barges, you'll have a front seat to all the action while relaxing with your wine or spritz.

“Great atmosphere in lovely location”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Had a few drink and some cichetti here recently on a Saturday night. Wine and drinks really excellent and also a great prices.
The place was mostly frequented by locals but even all the staff made the extra effort to try and understand our Scottish accents. Was a great way to spend an early Saturday in a vibrant little bar. Food and drinks really nice enhanced by a great atmosphere.

“Great place for a drink and people watching”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our B&B was very close to this caffe/bar. My husband could go there for an early morning coffee. We both liked stopping in after a busy day of sight-seeing to have a drink and, if we could snag a seat at the front window, watch all of the people crossing the Ponte dei Pugni. The times we were there for drinks (either late morning or late evening) there was classic American soft-rock playing in the background.
Some simple snacks (pizza, sandwiches) were served, but we stuck with the alcohol. Red wine for my husband and a Venetian spritz or Sambuca for me. Lots of locals, but tourists treated well.

“Dorsoduro's place to be before midnight...”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Cosy. Buzzing. Delicious prosecco and spritz. Perfect for Aperitivi, morning (!) or evening, or drinks after dinner - come any time to soak up local Venetian life.
