Fodor's Review

A short walk from the Rialto Bridge, this bar has been around since 1936; the satisfying cicchetti and primi have a lot to do with its staying power. Grab one of the tables out front, or take refuge in two small, dark rooms with a ceiling plastered with wine labels that provide a classic backdrop for simple fare, including a delicious risotto that it served daily at noon. The place prides itself on its solid wine list of both Italian and foreign vintages. If you stick to a panino or some cicchetti at the bar, you'll eat well for relatively little. If you take a table and opt for one of the day's exceptional primi, the price category goes up a notch; however, this is still a good bargain for San Marco. There are, of course, traditional secondi, such as a very good seppie in nero. Al Volto is open every day of the year but Christmas (and closes a bit early on Christmas Eve).
