This traditional Venetian bar is second to none. The finger food is phenomenal, along with the ambiance and friendly staff. My first pit stop anytime I'm passing through town.

Great little bar, we only had a drink as was very full from lunch. Is in a small alley a bit difficult to find. Was very busy, there are a few seats outside. The food looked lovely.

A small bar full of atmosphere with friendly service. Inexpensive cicchetti with lots of favour. In Venice, one must do is bar-hopping. This is definitely on the list and probably one of the best!

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
