Great little place close to the Rialto Bridge. Good selection of good Italian wines, at very reasonable prices. Plus you can also grab a couple of snacks at the same time to tie you over before dinner.

Ask for a Select spritz and a truffled cheese panino, absolute heaven, great energetic ambience, friendly hosts, superb people watching spot. We always pay a visit when in Venice. Enjoy!

We stopped at 6-7 bacari bars and this was the most disappointing. The selection of cicchetti was limited to a few types of small sandwiches. Nothing very interesting.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
