Drinks are not fancy, there is nearly nothing you can call tapas but if you just want a simple drink between friends with a hobo/relax atmosphere why not. However not nice for couples. Please don't go to the bathroom. It's more than filthy.

The neighborhood is dirty and nobody takes care for bird droppings. The waiters don't care for table cleanness. Toilet behind the restaurant requires refurbishing. We ordered one drink only but certainly looking at this all didn't feel like having anything more.

Coffes are very nice and The prices are like 2-3 euros:) The location is very easy to find. You can enjoy The day with your friends

In a city with so many inauthentic and overpriced places we were happy to find the real thing. Great place to sit down for a drink or coffee after hours of walking. Beautiful mix of locals and tourists. Very friendly service. Highly recommended.

This a great bar and restaurant to sit and watch people passing. Service was quite good, and the Aperol Spritz excellent. Can get quite busy, but overall , very good

This is an historical place of Venice, the nicest of this square, which is one of the most animated of Venice.

We visited here, as part of a night out in this area of the Dorsoduro. It did a great spritz, at a very reasonable price. We would have stayed longer but it was a cold evening, and with it being so popular there was no...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
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
