Very nice small bar, we recommend it :) Aperol Spritz and the costini/small pieces of bread with different flovours are perfect for a short breack

Perfect location, good cicchetti, free flowing drinks and a great atmosphere! Service can be difficult as it's so small. There is hardly anywhere to sit but still the best one in Venice.

As a tourist I won’t have found this beautiful restaurant but thanks to my local friend to whom I requested that I want to dine to some cozy authentic Italian place ...and he took us here.Food and drinks are classic and fairly priced. Highly recommended

This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Lovely cicchetti and a great selection of wine with somewhere to sit and watch the gondolas being restored across the canal. It was always busy and on Friday evening there was quite a crowd outside...More

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
