Cicheti restaurants in Venice
- Sort by:
Just a footbridge from Piazza San Marco, this shoebox of a corner bar offers quality wines and abundant cicheti, including crostini heaped with baccalà mantecato, grilled vegies, soft cheeses and melon tightly swaddled in prosciutto. Note that opening times are ‘flexible.’
Cabernet Franc comes out of a hose and platters of hearty fare are passed around at this bacaro (old-style bar), a favourite of salty sailors and neighbourhood eccentrics. Go for mixed plates with thick slabs of salami, translucent sheets of pancetta and grilled vegies with crusty bread. Angle for a canalside spot, or duck inside to admire the decor of bicycle parts and dusty English gin bottles, drained before the war.
