I picked this little place out before we left home, since there were so many great reviews. My husband put the coordinates in his GPS and once in Venice, we went searching! It's not very hard to find, and just like the pictures you see, it is crowded. We arrived about 1pm, and I nervously tried to work my way... More

We got three little sandwiches. Salami and cheese, salami and mushroom, and cheese abd olive. They were all good but the bread seemed a bit stale and one roll was burned on the top. It is a super tiny place but sitting outside was nice. Cheapest wine ever although we didnt get a glass. 3 sandwiches for ?2.60

What a lovely little find! We stumbled across this place which was packed with locals. You can get a small glass of wine for 1 euro or a glass of prosecco for 90 cents. They sell small ham, pork or cheese rolls for about 60 cents I think. I overheard one local tell a tourist that it is the cheapest... More

We found this place on trip advisor before travelling to Venice for a short break and you really have to visit. Believe everything about the atmosphere, the rolls and the wine. The atmosphere is great, yes the guy behind the bar drinks as much as her serves but is really welcoming. Everyone gathers around outside (once you have 4 people... More

I stopped to pick up lunch for the train back to Rome. It was 10AM the locals were drinking wine and toasting each other. So were the guys behind the counter. I pointed out 4 small sandwiches and asked for a glass of the .60 euro wine. The locals cheered me clinked glasses with me as I downed the red.... More

£3.20 for three mini rolls and a small glass of red! Super friendly and exceplent service. Recommended for breakfast, lots of locals there. Small with no sitting apace though. About 10 minutes walk from the train station - cross just one bridge.

Delicious cicchetti! Thanks to TripAdvisor, and my husband's awesome map reading skills, we visited Bacareto Da Lele and experienced their delicious spin on cicchetti. Their meats are super fresh and served plentifully and their rolls are clearly served direct from the oven - very crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. We sampled three varieties of cicchetti - the... More

If you have the bottle to elbow your way through the very lively, mostly Italian speaking crowd, you will not be disappointed. 5 mouthwatering 100% authentic Italian rolls crammed full of delicious fillings, with little glasses of wine, came to just 5 euros & we delighted in eating our feast on the church steps in the Italian sunshine- divine!!

Great food and good service and you have to try the crab and egg sandwich. The price was good which a nice change in Venice. My advice is just stop by there everyday and try something different its all good

We discovered this gem of a place three years ago when we stayed at The Hotel Popodopoli just across the canal and we have been back every time we have visited Venice since. It's not fancy, as others have commented, but it does give you an unique Venetian experience rubbing shoulders with the locals. Last month we were in Venice... More

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.
