This is such a great place, a little bar with a bench looking out over the market and the best mini rolls you will ever taste. We were in heaven, the san daniele prociutto with tartufo is one of the most sublime things I've ever...More

Nice food to try after the fish market with a great choice of wine. Go there and take it easy, it’s the way to enjoy it!

Make your way to the small counter and order wine and point at the food you want to go with it and enjoy. Good selection of both and very reasonable. Small sandwiches and deep fried goodies all fresh. Good selection of wines. Then back out...More

One of the things we enjoy most about Italy is the ability to grab a drink and snack and enjoy it standing out on the street. We got a spritz and a sandwich at Al Merca and really enjoyed the experience of standing outside watching...More

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.

This place is tiny. Like no place to stand inside tiny. But it is right on a plaza so everyone just mills about the square and drinks and eats. My husband and I stopped by here right at closing time. There were still dozens of...More

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
