Delicious cicchetti and spritz; busy and lively, with a good atmosphere. Teenage sons came with us at lunchtime, and we joined the small crowd outside.

A cosy neighbourhood bar offering reasonably priced drinks - an Aperol Spritz was €2.50 and €2 for a Venetian Chardonnay. We managed to get one of the few seats inside but there were loads of locals happily standing in the cold by the canal outside...More

Many fresh different cicchetti (with meat, vegies, seafood, cheese) - very delicious. You can eat in or take away (etaing in is sometimes impossibile cause there are a lots of people there every time). You can order aperol and other italian drinks as well. Prices...More

Nice, cozy bar near Ponte del Accademia. Don’t miss it, if you are near this area. Delicious cicchetti and really good wine.

How atmospheric and wonderful this place is...It would have been very easy to spend the whole afternoon and evening here!!! The cicchetti is lovely particularly the creamy blue cheese topped ones and only €1.50-80 each. Spritz and Prosecco a bargain! So good we went twice!

One of the remaining Bacari - the Venitian equivalent of a tapas bar. It is a tiny "hole in the wall" that sells tasty snacks and drinks. Were were there in the early evening and it was bustling with life. Great atmosphere.

A lucky find, frequented by locals (or at least people who talk italian) Good crostini and drinks at less than half the price of the usual tourist traps.

An outstanding little bar, extremely busy, which, when you visit you realise why! The atmosphere is wonderful, when we were there it was mainly full of local people who were really polite and friendly, particularly the young people. The staff are very welcoming, and considering...More

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

If you mean what time are drink prices reduced like in some places in Europe, I don't think they do it Al Squero. The prices are reasonable enough there anyway. If you are in Venice most places will make you feel happy if... More

Al Squero is the only Osteria in Venice exactly in front of the Ancient Squero of San Trovaso. There is no other place where appreciating from its window the construction or restoration of original Venetian gondolas. It is a cozy and comfortable place where you can share with friends a glass of Italian wine and taste an appetizing “cicchetto” at a small price. The selection of wines you can taste or buy at Al Squero comes from small regional wine firms of Friuli, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, so that it is guaranteed unique care at the quality and distinctiveness of their products.
