Cute place, stylish, nice location along a canal. Like most places with outdoor seating, they will haul out a table for you, if there's room. It's way fun being outdoors here. This place is the neighborhood bar for cute, hip young locals. They bring their wine and their cicchetti outside and lean on the wall along the canal, just where the alley comes in, and wait for their friends to pass by. It's really entertaining to watch, and the kids are credits to their parents, so don't think I'm implying anything in the least bit derogatory about their behavior. Anyway, the selection of cicchetti here is really good. Just ask, and the waiter will bring you to the refrigerator case to explain what's what, and how to order, if you're wondering. For a main dish, the whole roasted fish (for 2 or more people) is good. We've had it several times, and mostly it was a bit overcooked by my standards, but about right for Main Street America, and since I'm American I can understand why they'd try to cook for Main Street tastes, but I wish they'd be truer to their own roots. That said, I'd happily order it again. It's well seasoned and the roasted potatoes and gigantic olives are excellent. If you come here, allow plenty of time for dinner. Service is friendly and very charming, but extremely slow.

In one word gorgeous.The best dinner we had in our 7 wks trip.We had cicchetti antipasto and a grilled fish..I think it was a branzzino.Amazing fresh fish and amazing wine with very honest prices. We are from Australia and we will recommend this hidden gem to all my friends. Also it was very nice chatting with Simone and Ricardo. So...nice food..nice owners..the best italian wine..perfect location...go for Osteria del Cason! MARIANNE GOODSTEAL AUGUST 2013 MELBOURNE

We were determined to try a wide sample of cichetti while we were in Venice and this place met that. We sampled all their fresh tapas for one to three euros a serving. The chef was continually bringing out more to keep the selection ever changing. Considering we had never ordered cichetti before the server was helpful in getting us set up. It is a fresh and clean restaurant that seems renovated.
