From the sidewalk, it appeared run down and dubious. Once inside, the welcome, the wine, and the food were beyond reproach. Slovenian wine, a malvasia, was excellent, as proposed by the sommelier. From amuse bouche to dessert, each course was a symphony of culinary creativity, beautiful, fragrant, and delicious. The owner is a charming host, do chat with him. His passion is evident in the entire experience.

All'Arco

Reviewed By Daniel B - NEW YORK

Yes, I discovered the WIne Bars (Bacari) of VENICE Long before the Masses way back in 1995, and All'Arco was my first ever. This is one of the most authentic and oldest Bacaro in Venice and one that serves such traditional CIchetti as Nervetti along with Baccala Mantecato, Polpettini, Sarde en Saor, and more. The people here are great: Great CICHETT, VINI, Ambiance, Energy and Service. A Must DO in VENICE. I LOVE IT !!! Basta!

San Martino

Reviewed By spadesaspade - Rome, Italy

What constitutes a good restaurant is a matter of taste but even so, I was surprised that this establishment is recommended in the usual books. It’s not the clinical and (too) brightly lit room, or the sound bouncing off the walls, or the pretentious little leather handbag stands, or the unnecessarily long (and heavy) wine list and the amateur sommelier dramatics, or the irritating music from an oversized sound system (meant I think to be progressive jazz but was more like music for a lift), or bringing the wrong starter and forgetting my girlfriend’s main course; it is just that the food was average, small portions (in the name of nouvelle), overpriced and nervous. This is an ersatz restaurant for show offs who don’t know better.

Bacareto Da Lele

Reviewed By Lucy B

This place is tiny, but it is so so good I would recommend to stop by it! They have a selection of small meat sandwiches which are only €1. I would say to get 2 per person. Also small glasses of wine start from €0.60. Super cheap and super delicious, we went twice as it was perfect for a quick snack. Gets really busy and always seemed packed but don’t let the queue put you off it goes really quickly.

Osteria Al Squero

Al Squero is the only Osteria in Venice exactly in front of the Ancient Squero of San Trovaso. There is no other place where appreciating from its window the construction or restoration of original Venetian gondolas. It is a cozy and comfortable place where you can share with friends a glass of Italian wine and taste an appetizing “cicchetto” at a small price. The selection of wines you can taste or buy at Al Squero comes from small regional wine firms of Friuli, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, so that it is guaranteed unique care at the quality and distinctiveness of their products.

Reviewed By Rob S

Reasonable prices good snacks, wines at fair prices and wonderful spritz, what more can you ask? The place was packed of course but the service was pleasant and attentive.
I should have stayed and eaten cichetti for my dinner considering the lousy tourist quality of some of the surrounding restaurant food.

Cafe Filermo

Reviewed By Petra J - Kranj, Slovenia

Do not understand what are all the praises for - there are far better places in Venice. Maybe good for tourists, but there were no locals at time of our arrival. Lack of choise of food and beverages, expensive, wine very average, the owner a bit lost... Definitly far from being Nr 1...

Ristorante Duilio

Reviewed By Alessandra V - Reading, United Kingdom

My fiancee and I had a dinner at Duilio's to try the dinner menu for our wedding and there wasn't a single dish which wasn't fantastic. The food is really great, from starters to main dishes (capesante, risotto and ravioli are the top ones). Service also very good and friendly, suggested to everyone!

We visited restaurant. We made reservation via their website, but it didn't went through. So I recommend that you call for reservation. Even so, they were extremely helpful and kind and set us an extra table. We enjoyed in wonderful food, very tasty and well served. Every thing was so good. Compliments to the staff!

Cocaeta

Artisan Food to take-away. ATTENTION: this is a very tiny shop, NOT the best option for groups, it has NO seats inside nor tables, there are only some bearing shelves so NOT possible to make Reservations. But here you can taste delicious, light and healthy homemade dishes - also vegan (BUT NOT GLUTEN FREE!) - choosing from many on a menu that changes daily, savory and sweet. The Crepes are stuffed with the best local (and not only) food, not industrial, many ingredients are also homemade. Cocaeta has also delicious tiramisu to go made at the order, special local craft beers or natural soft drinks.

Reviewed By KelsieL000 - Canada

I am very late posting this review as we traveled to Venice in 2016, but we will never forget about Cocaeta. The most amazing crepes you will ever have the pleasure of eating! Cocaeta is slightly off the beaten path but definitely worth the trip. We stayed in a hotel on the same street so for us it was perfect. We stopped in several times throughout our trip. The one evening it was packed and a bit of a wait but there was live local entertainment outside and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We made small talk with the owner while there and he is an absolute gem! Do not miss the opportunity to stop here during your trip!

Bacaro Quebrado

Reviewed By Tika1994 - London, United Kingdom

We read the reviews of Bacari Quebrado and weren’t disappointed. The staff is very friendly and inviting and we were given a glass of wine while waiting for our table as it was a very busy evening. The prawns and the arancini were great and the wine was very affordable. Tania in particular was so lovely and helpful! We really enjoyed chatting to her and would recommend this place for a tasty, affordable and friendly meal!
