This place is fantastic, okay it's not a restaurant, there are no seats - but there is a beautiful canal next to it to sit by and watch the fish. The ambiance is just awesome - locals pushing to the front (but in a nice way), the food and drink is just so cheap as the other reviews have said... More

A small, simple, extremely pleasant little stop as you explore the nooks and crannies of Venice. Buy a small meat & cheese platter, have a drink and enjoy it outside as you watch boats navigate the canal... what could be better? Mostly locals here, very friendly. If you don't speak Italian, no worries... failing anything else, you can just point-and-pay.... More

We enjoyed 2 glasses of wine for 60 cents each, which is the cheapest I've ever had and it was delicious. The place was full of locals standing and chatting. A great value and a true Venetian experience.

Very good basic sandwiches for nice price of 0,99 € for example you can pay 5€ for capuccino few streets away. Bar is very small and full of locals and students. Took drink and food and sit in front of at stairs it is best away to start your walk.

Found this little bar whilst wandering the Santa Croce area near the bus station. We stopped for a small beer (from 1.5 Euro) and a couple of glasses of wine (from 60 cents a glass). Excellent little find, but don't expect anything fancy. Nowhere to sit and very small, but plenty of atmosphere, and great location outside by the canal... More

This place is perfect if you want to try "cicchetto" (the Venetian word for snack) in a typical atmosphere, with a good quality of food and a low price. A small glass of wine goes for less than €1.5 usually, a small sandwich has roughly the same price, and the quality is very high (especially paying that low price in... More

Not sure why this place has such high ranking on TA. There is nothing special!!! We expected pressed paninis w veggies and meats. But we got bread that was too hard and some meat. Sure it was cheap but def nothing to rave about.

After reading people's reviews and it being rated so well I had higher expectations, I think anyone can throw a piece of meat on a roll. They we ok, a little dry and lacked flavor. A good change from pizza and pasta I must admit.

This place was recommended by our tour guide for tasty and fabulous in value. She was right. It's worth dealing with chaos of ordering and only being able to stand while you eat. Tiny place with great neighborhood vibe.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
