Lonely Planet review
Off the tourist routes and close to any Venetian bargain-hunter’s heart, this vaulted cavern opens onto a secluded square along the Grand Canal. Buffet-style lunches come fully loaded with affettati (especially Trevisana sausages and cured meats) and pasta for about €20 – but the best deal is in the afternoons before 7.30pm, when a cicheti buffet and drink runs from €5 to €7. At dinner, abundant primi are served family-style with about a pound of pasta for two, and specials are recited rather than written down. As the sign says: menú turistico non ghe xe (there’s no tourist menu).
