Its with mixed heart that I write this review. This place is a real gem. Patronized by all the locals. And some random tourists off the beaten path in side street. I am worried that more great reviews would make this place lose the authenticity...More

I never realized that simple sandwiches could be extramely delicious. Served in this place local cichetti are absolutely amazing! Fresh, simple and unforgettable. Must-visit in Venice! And the owner and family, kind atmosphere makes this place even more better and authentic. Highly recommended!

Loved this discovery in a arrow lane in Dorsoduro. Had a selection of cicchetti which was delish, with a glass of prosecco- lots of locals hanging out there so straight away you know it's going to be good.

This small genuine Italian family style bistro offers the best cichetti with huge choice and we found them best in Venice you can eat them with great wine or prosseco. Beware of strange opening hours:)

Lives up to its reputation. Went to eat a quick bite there after seeing it on Rick Stein and it was delicious. The ideal place for a really authentic Venetian lunch ( stood up ) delicious ingredients.

Beside or Al Squero one of the best places to have this typical Venetian Typ of food. Variations are immense . This place is more close to the market area and also good to step out of the main flow of tourists - very, very...More

We went for a little snack, as we had heard so much about this place. It was busy inside but had a wonderful atmosphere. We had two cicchetti each just to sample some flavours- a smoked salmon one, a meaty one, a warm cheese and...More

These bischetti, like tapas, are so tasty and only 2€. We had seen it recommended in a Guardian article about Venise and bumped into it by pure chance I think the glass of wine was only 1,50€. You eat standing up but it doesn't matter....More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
