I visited this place twice while in Venice. The food was fine - nothing to write home about but considering how pricey food is in Venice, this represents very good value. If I recall correctly, it is Euro 1.40 for your first piece of crostini....More

Fantastic service, food and location especially on a sunny day! Watch out for the bird-thief's though we saw too many lost lunches!

This is a very cute and cosy little bar with great chichetti and wine. There is a good selection of chichetti and the staff were helpful in explaining what they were.

Very nice little Osteria!! Absolutely perfect for pre-drinks and aperitif type foods; but not for lunch nor dinner. The most common thing they have is very tasty little tapas toasts with different types of homemade spreads. Considering that Venice is not particularly well known for...More

We stopped in here and managed to snag a seat. We had a drink and used the FREE rest room before moving on to the next bar. We did not try their snacks but probably should have done so! Service is friendly, and the prices...More

Diffrent little sandwiches with meat or sea food. You can choose all diffrent. They have fantastic Amorone wine. The place is very little and if you are lucky you can sit inside. If not you can stay outside having a nice view on the canal....More

The ultimate place for cicchetti! Really, even if you are staying way, way away, this certainly is worth the trip. Tiny on the inside, only about 20 seats, but you can stand by the canal and enjoy your cicchettis while watching the gondola repair dock...More

I really enjoyed the cicchetti at this restaurant. We ordered a couple and each was better than the next. My suggestion is to go around lunch time to grab a little bite and sit and relax. This place gets very busy in the evening and...More

Good variety of wines and small snacks. Unlike some other similar places, here there is even some space inside to sit (4 small tables). The variety of different chicchetti (italian version of pinchos) was large - everything was fresh and of high quality. Of the...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

Yes they have a few without or I am sure they would bring some from the back with no bread. It's very small and they are accommodating.

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.
