“Great place!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Perfect for a lunch stop and glass of wine! No place to sit, so just take your glass and food and sit in the square.

“Wonderful pit stop”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped for a spritz just after a.good walk from San Marco. Expensive small spot just off the market street where a standing spot is your table for a drink. An olive to go with a Spritz. Had mine with prosecco, sweetened the drink. Very recommended.

“Great for happy hour !”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Come by and have a 2 euro spritz. Great atmosphere :-). Not much food so beware if you are hungry, but the people are all out enjoying in the square. Very nice. Beer is pricier though !

“Great wine and cicchetti choices”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This is a fun, fun place. Belly up to the pint sized bar and just ask the staff for what's good -- and it will be!

“Perfect for a Spritz and some Socializing”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Stopped here based on reviews. After finally finding the square (we learned pretty fast that nothing is easy to find in Venice or in Italy for that matter) it was a perfect spot to relax, get an inexpensive drink...my refreshing drink of choice is the infamous "spritz"...and to get a little bite to eat to hold you over for dinner. This was a great Venetian experience close to Rialto but far enough away where it wasn't a madhouse. If we were in Venice longer we would have been to Al Merca at least once a day...great pre-dinner drink spot as well!
