This is one of those beautiful and atmospheric snack bars, so typical for Venice. You'll find overflowing trays of cold cuts/sliced cured meats & sausages, as well as cheeses and, of course, pasta to die for! Must-tries are definitely the Venetian classics which are served...More

On our Keto diet, we found here a fine plate of cheese but truly excellent grilled vegetables! How the Italians turn something so modest into something so delicious is a mystery. Friendly service. Only downside, no credit cards accepted.

Very casual dive bar, the waitress/host was sassy and overall service wasn't spectacular, but the atmosphere was good, they gave generous portions of salumi, and lots of wine options.

Had heard good things about this lovely old Osteria and they were right. Huge platter of meats and cheese and a nice glass of wine while the rain fell outside and the kids played football. Genuinely good.

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
