You can find better bar in Venice. The food is cheap but not very good. Service is not that friendly. Not recommended.

For 1.5 euros each everything was worth it! Love the anchovies, cod, meatloaf, octopus and many more! It goes well with wine! Dine in standing up adds to the fun of tapas bars! One had to be quick with orders since it gets crowded too quick.

Cheap fine and food. They also sell wine bottles here. No seats, you just stand around the bar and drink. Ok for a quick drink

We sought this little wine shop out for a walking lunch following a recommendation from a work colleague. The choice of cicchetti is amazing and every one we tried was a taste experience not to be missed. Washed down with a reasonably priced glass of wine you could spend a long time here (except there is no loo). Packed full... More

It is definitely worth seeking out this little gem of a bar on the Dorsoduro side of Accademia. Huge selection of wines but the Pinot Grigio blush at 1 euro a glass is not to be sniffed at. Beautiful selection of tasty cicchetti. When we were there the local police were enjoying their wine free lunch. If you're anywhere near... More

Saw this Google maps as a local and was recommended it by my hotel, just gorgeous snacks and such variety both vegetarian and meaty options. So good washed down with a glass or of red wine (or any other drink you fancy!), so venetian!! Recommended!!

Fantastic local spot! Fantastic little bites and a great wine selection! If you're looking for a place to grab a quick bite and a glass of wine, that locals come visit, this is the spot!

Such a lovely place just a few minutes' walk from the Accademia. The cicchetti where some of the best we had in Venice, the pesto and cheese and the smoked swordfish where two of our favourites. We found the service to be very friendly and helpful. Standing room only

Loved this place - not sure I'm totally convinced in having red wine for breakfast (apparently it's the done thing) but really reasonable price wise and the wee snacks on bread were amazing!!!! Lovely lovely lovely - can't wait to be back

This place is busy in waves - when we walked in the place was packed but 15 min later one could walk in and get service with no problem. So how does it work? When you go in there is a counter on the right with lots of snacks - or you can get panini made fresh. If busy then... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
