When in Venice, one of the tricks to getting the “real deal” cuisine is getting away from the touristy areas and eating as the locals do. Which means skip the shady pizza joints and “menu turistico” places with hawkers begging you to look at the menu as soon as you get off the boat, and dig into the city to find out where the locals are noshing.
You’ll find some amazing treats at bacaro type establishments pouring spritzes and serving up cicchetti that are just to die for. We’ll show you where! Make sure you click to enlarge.
And if you knew how good the smoked swordfish wrapped robiaola, pickled herring, and olive oil and herb soaked artichoke hearts were here, you would be too! Nothing beats a cicchetti bar off the beaten path a bit in a quiet Venetian neighborhood for a pre-dinner snack and bicchiere di vino!

One of the best parts of staying at Hotel Giorgione, our “home in Venice” is the warm hospitality of the quiet corner of Cannaregio where it’s found; this short video shows that Venice isn’t just the hustle-bustle crowded experience many folks complain about. If you know where you’re going, you’ll see the Venice that Venetians themselves experience: a post-work nip of prosecco, a quiet calle, and some fantastic cicchetti prepared with fresh local ingredients.
