Description: Our well-established traditional Venetian restaurant and bar is family-run since 1986.We are within short walking distance fromSaint Lucia trainstation in Venice on tranquil, tucked away Calle della Misericordia street. Service ispleasingly informal with jazzy music and relaxingatmosphere. Our place is most popular among the Venetians as well as with tourists.The exact location of our restaurantcan be found through Google maps. Please type in a search box "Osteriaal Cicheto Venezia. We specialized in classic Venetiancuisine based on seasonal dishes.Our Osteria is ideal for a quick stop/cocktail hour to have aglass of wine with cichèti as well asfor a hot-plate at lunch or a full (3 course meal) dinner. We have an excellent and well priced wine list and quality D.O.C.prossecco.Two differentmenus are offered in our restaurant: one is at midday, when customers are looking for faster service to optimize their lunch break, employeesin particular, most of which will have a plate of day-fresh pasta or risotto,salad or a toasted sandwich. For dinner we offermore sophisticated and complex in preparation menu with choices of meat,seafood plates and vegetarian dishes.

“Buona Gusto!!! A gem indeed!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

The food is the best at least within a 800m radius. Prices are reasonable and service is top notch. we had the pasta and it's cooked just right and you can really tell that a lot of effort went into the food preparation. Desserts (chocolate mousse and apple pie) are also a must try.

FYI: we're an Asian couple and we had absolutely zero discriminatory experience. Service was as good as any can expect.

Warning though: There's a good chance if you're going as a couple, that your partner may try to steal portion of your food off your plate. My wife did cos she loves everything and I had to fight off her fork.

Try this place!

P/S: It might be hard to find but it's near the train station, opposite Hotel Principe. Just trot down the tiny lane and you'll find it on your right.

“Asians are not welcome”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

Me and my husband wanted to have dinner here. The waiter gestured no- at first we thought "oh no seats available" since there are a lot of people but then a group of 5 guys entered and there we're available seats for them. This restaurant sucks!!

“Very authentic little restaurant ”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

It was great to find this real restaurant, tucked away and not full of tourists. Very reasonably priced for the best bolognese we have ever tasted, and red wine was delicious and amazingly affordable! The man who served us was very friendly and patient with our bad Italian language skills. The only downside were the mosquitoes. I think they need some insect repellant plug ins to try to keep them out, but maybe that problem is everywhere. The locals obviously love this place, which is a great recommendation!

“Wonderful small place for dinner”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

It is a bit hard to find but it is across the road from the hotel principe down the alley. It is worth the search. Great food and authentic venice food.

Reviewed 17 March 2014

You should find this place right before Hotel il principe, a small alley on the left side. Nice service and really good food!
