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

They serve delicious and unique variety of cicchetti, way more interesting than at any other bacaro. Ok, maybe not for everyone, but my marinated herring was sublime! Great wine by the glass also. However, it is true that there is not a friendly bunch of people behind that counter, but we did not come to make friends. We came to... More

OK, so everyone says you make the best cicheti in Venice (and that might well be true - personally I don't think they're as good as they were a few years ago) and your pinot grigio at 1 euro a glass is probably the best pinot grigio I've tasted anywhere. BUT... that doesn't excuse you from being at least neutral... More

Probably best there's no seating or WC here or I would stay all day. Great variety of snacks, really inventive combinations and a beautiful display, a real taste sensation! Bustling place, lots of locals who seemed to know one another when we visited. This spot is very near S. Trovaso chruch and squero and also just a few minutes' walk... More

I found this place after getting lost and being very hungry so I dived in here without any form of expectation. After 5 minutes I was not disappointed. It is exciting,very informal and similar to many of the great little cafes up and down the breadth of Italy that are off the beaten track. Between two of us we went... More

I had my first ever glass of Venetian Spritz here, and it couldn't easily have happened in a cosier place with a more seasonal atmosphere. While I was standing at the counter enjoying my drink and a plate of very good cicchetti, the entire osteria was being decorated for Christmas with stars and glitter, a cheerful yuletide makeover. It felt... More

This used to be one of the best places for chicetti but is let down by the indiferrent bread they use which is dissapointing as really good bread is now available in Venice

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.
