We visited this place after the Tripadvisor recommendations and we tried all of their mini Panini (called cichetti), in order to taste all the flavors! We hence ordered 10 Panini at 9 Eur total, to take away; all of them were delicious and made with very good quality ingredients! Do visit this place to have a hint of Venice spirit,... More

Right across canal from our hotel, we saw lines here each day. On our last day we tried it and we are so glad we did. Delicious sandwiches for about a euro and small glasses of wine for $0.60 each! I call it a stand because there is only a counter inside and people sit on the steps in the... More

Lele's is simply a great Venetian place, it's a tiny Bacari - let's say "bacarinino" eh? However it's simply a perfectly placed location that has tasty no nonsense ciccheti and FANTASTIC ambiance. The food- Simple-this isn't a restaurant-the food is meant to be plentiful, tasty, simple and local. If you're looking for pizza or a revolutionary ciccheti, this isn't here,... More

Just the place for honest, good value snacks and wine. Always plenty of locals stopping off for a small glass of wine (and cheap!) and a sandwich. Perfect antidote to tourist focused, overpriced establishments. Standing only - it's tiny!

this place is tiny with no seating, and really authentic feeling. it gets super crowded with people on their lunch breaks eating tiny sandwiches, drinking red wine and chatting. the guy behind the counter was really friendly, drinking wine with the customers. i'm a vegetarian so only a couple of choices for me but they were all good. went here...

I picked this little place out before we left home, since there were so many great reviews. My husband put the coordinates in his GPS and once in Venice, we went searching! It's not very hard to find, and just like the pictures you see, it is crowded. We arrived about 1pm, and I nervously tried to work my way... More

We got three little sandwiches. Salami and cheese, salami and mushroom, and cheese abd olive. They were all good but the bread seemed a bit stale and one roll was burned on the top. It is a super tiny place but sitting outside was nice. Cheapest wine ever although we didnt get a glass. 3 sandwiches for ?2.60

What a lovely little find! We stumbled across this place which was packed with locals. You can get a small glass of wine for 1 euro or a glass of prosecco for 90 cents. They sell small ham, pork or cheese rolls for about 60 cents I think. I overheard one local tell a tourist that it is the cheapest... More

We found this place on trip advisor before travelling to Venice for a short break and you really have to visit. Believe everything about the atmosphere, the rolls and the wine. The atmosphere is great, yes the guy behind the bar drinks as much as her serves but is really welcoming. Everyone gathers around outside (once you have 4 people... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
