Cheap drinks and little tapas. Don't expect great wine as the prices seem right up the students alley. In fact don't look at the labels!! If you find a seat inside you'll be lucky or you can take your food and drink outside that 75%...More

I feel a bit disloyal to all of the other cicchetti places that we enjoyed, but I am saying here and now, that this place has the best that we had, of all the other spots. Maybe because finally, the bread used was actually tasty!...More

The place is really small, so there is 90% of chance you will pick up your food and eat outside. Which is really not a problem because its a nice option. Prices are excellent, the size of the cichetti was perfect, bigger than the other...More

Made for a good place to have a snack in those hours between museum closing time and dinner. great choices for seafood lovers, not so much for vegetarians, pretty much impossible for vegans and gluten free.Aperol Spritz was delicious.

A great happenstance encounter. 2 spritz later, 5 tapas and only 12 € lighter, well worth the discovery! Deliciousness all around! With a view of the gondolas being repaired.

I stopped in here multiple afternoons for a drink and cicchetti. The prices on wine by the glass were great, and so it was a great place to grab some wine and try a couple of different crostini. I was quite limited on which crostini...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

We went there at about 11:30 am and were the only customers. However, at about 12:30 there were no vacant tables anymore. There are 4 or 5 of them.

Yes they have a few without or I am sure they would bring some from the back with no bread. It's very small and they are accommodating.

Al Squero is the only Osteria in Venice exactly in front of the Ancient Squero of San Trovaso. There is no other place where appreciating from its window the construction or restoration of original Venetian gondolas. It is a cozy and comfortable place where you can share with friends a glass of Italian wine and taste an appetizing “cicchetto” at a small price. The selection of wines you can taste or buy at Al Squero comes from small regional wine firms of Friuli, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, so that it is guaranteed unique care at the quality and distinctiveness of their products.
