It is a warm and very small tavern offering small bites of sandwiches with good italian ham and wine. It seems very popular with the local student population.

They serve perfect wine for 1 euro right along the river. Great service and very generous staff! They gave me a free book that I was reading from the bookshelf. The atmosphere is very quaint and local. Atmosphere outside is perfect for a chill night...More

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
