We had the best wine of our trip here (pic below). The bartender was friendly and helpful and the cichetti were tasty.

We found this place as we were walking by and our attention was caught because there were plenty of people standing and drinking. We bought 3 spritz, a wine and a beer and we paid less than 15 euros. It’s self service but the staff...More

Very informal. I had excellent wine and light food choices available. When there is music on it is very bust and other times a corner can be found. You might spot the people drinking outside before you find the front door.

We’ve passed by for a coffee and a martini but it was great. Nice decoration, free WiFi, the price was fair and the restaurant itself is very cozy!

Seriously, go there! Filled with Italian people, this joint is a must in Venice. Excellent drinks for a super low price, in an amazing environment.

The food is delicious although a bit pricey. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was very friendly.

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

"Known to locals as 'La Poppa', this buzzing watering hole has a great wine list and cocktail selection (€3.50-6), including the Zaza, a mean house speciality involving copious amounts of rum and fresh ginger. One of the few venues in Venice offering live music (early evening on Wednesdays), Osteria da Filo is crammed with a young hipster and alternative crowd. On Wednesdays, arrive early to grab a comfy sofa or seat near the stage; alternatively, squeeze yourself in at the bar. The music ranges from traditional swing to contemporary jazz with local and international acts performing. The staff are friendly and the mood convivial" - Lonely Planet
