Found this place by chance. Very full and quite dark, but great atmosphere. The cicchetti we had were so delicious, we bought more!! Well worth tracking down.

It had begun to rain so the only seating was inside the restaurant the night we visited. The back room was uncomfortably hot and crowded, even with several empty tables. The food was good and the service was acceptable, although it would not be classified as professional or friendly. The menu is not extensive but covers all the bases. My... More

We just chanced by this small Enoteca while wandering the streets of Venice. The welcome was very warm. There's a wide choice of wines as you'd expect in an Enoteca but also good food. The service is friendly but the bar and kitchen can get overwhelmed if there's a surge of people come in but that's fine. We enjoyed it... More

Had a lovely meal. Arrived and had to wait for a table while staring at some lovely cicchetti (tried one...yum). Sat at the table between the service area and the patio so we got to see the comings and goings and enjoy the easy banter the staff had with clients. (both local and tourist). Very pleasant service and best meal... More

situated in a rather calm street, not far from Rialto bridge, offering a small but nice terrace. Friendly staff and a vast variety of cicchetti: small portions like arancini, fishcroquettes, sandwiches with raw ham, buratta, ... but also some pastas and main dishes like shrimps. All reasonably priced. Nice winelist per glass available.

Brilliant atmosphere, good prosecco and lovely grappa, plus excellent ciceti. We've been here so many times, and always had such a warm welcome. Do visit it you happen to be in the area, it's a gem.

Founded in 1936 in the heart of Venice, in the Calle Cavalli street, very close to the Rialto bridge and the Rossini cinema, our wine bar offers its customers a cosy and peaceful atmosphere, with a familiar touch given by the wooden decorations which are the same that characterized the ancient "bacari", the places where people stopped to have a "cicheto" (small portion of typical food) and an "ombra de vin" (glass of wine).

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
