We found this bar following recommendations on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! We started with a spritz, and then ordered the meat and cheese platter and, due to the hot weather, a couple of glasses of prosecco. All were reasonably priced and delicious. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The setting was wonderful on the backstreets of Venice but only a short walk from the main sights. Highly recommended!

A good choice of wines and tasty cicchetti. About 12 tables with high stools out in the street. Very reasonable prices and a tasty double marked beer on tap. Unfortunately we only found it on our last night in Venice. We'll be sure to visit again.

A fantastic wine bar with the most amazing variety of sandwiches.

We had two chorizo ones, a ham and sun-dried tomato one and a pepperoni and cheese one.

They even heat up the sandwiches which was an added bonus!

Drinks also very reasonably priced.

A beautiful and chilled part of Venice. Well worth the visit.

We had discovered this wonderful little place on our last visit to Venice in 2015 and had liked it enough that we made sure to visit it again on our 2018 trip. Wonderful spritz at very reasonable prices, great choice of wines and good service. This time around we found that it was really hard to get a table most of the time so we only managed to stop by for a quick drink on one or two evenings but will be sure to stop by again on our next visit.

I wrote in March 2017 of the refurbishment, which has devoted more space to the making of chichetti, and panini, and a better working environment for the team, but quite how they achieve what they do in such a small space is worth a visit, for no other reason. The result is that people cannot linger at the bar, and block your way to a well earned drink. All good, and the extended food offering retains the same high standards.

What is missing, sometimes, are people. One of my previous reviews was read by some six thousand, and it was another four years before I managed to get one of the nine tables.

Venice is clearly much quieter than it has been in the last ten years, I know not why, but this team absolutely deserve your support.

Even if I cannot get a table next time.
