OK, we hadn't heard of them either but apparently ciccheti – 'Italian tapas', for want of a better word – are all the rage in backstreet bàcari in Venice. Polpo serves a lovely selection, including such unusual pairings as grilled fennel with white anchovy. More substantial are the half-dozen types of flavourful meatballs and the mini pizzette. The Venetian painter Canaletto lived here.
