Before travelling to Venice we'd read enough reviews/articles online to prepare us for the tourist traps, aka most restaurants on San Marco. We walked to Dorsoduro to escape the madness and find a smaller, more local place to get some food, and stumbled upon exactly what we were looking for.The staff were friendly and happy to explain about pricing, flavours and ingredients and we were thrilled to find that wine is available from 1,20 Euro per glass and cicchetti starts from 1 Euro per piece! We snacked on anchovies, salami, soft cheese, broccoli, crusty bread and sipped wine whilst we sat on the wall outside the Osteria, gazing at the sunset over the Grand Canal at the end of the street. The food was fantastic, we really couldn't fault anything we tried. It was great to find a smaller, more genuine Venetian gem and experience something truly authentic.
