Fodor's Review

Almost an institution, the "tiny anchovy" (as the name translates) doubles as a pizzeria-trattoria, but stick to the tasty cicchetti offered at the bar, like the eponymous anchovy minipizzas, the arancioni rice balls, and the polpette. The selection of wines by the glass changes daily, but there are always the ubiquitous local whites on hand, as well as some Tuscan and Piedmontese choices thrown in for good measure. Don't miss the tonno con polenta

(tuna with polenta) if it's offered, but scan the banco (grab a stool to pause a bit longer) and choose whatever appeals.

Near St. Marks and worth trying

The food here was decent, but not outstanding. The waiters were a little brusque, but Venice was flooded with tourists and this restaurant is quite close to St. Mark's.

Best Insalata Capressa anywhere in Italy

Located just a little bit behind St. Mark's Cathedral -- smack in the center of historic Venice -- this is a great place to dine on pizza, insalata capressa and enjoy a refreshing glass of wine. Sit outside and enjoy the hustle & bustle of true Venetian living. Good service & very reasonable prices. All in all -- one of best in Venice.

Do yourself a favour

I have such fond memories of the Aciugheta that when i read the previous review which so blatantly missed the whole point of the place, I felt prompted to write my first review ever. So if you are in Venice, do yourself a favour and go to the Aciugheta, follow a couple of simple guidelines and be prepared to some memorable times. 1. Do not sit down: stick to the bar and eat plenty of "cicheti" choosing from the mouth watering display; 2. Be prepared

to spend on wine: you will be able to enjoy a wonderful selection of fine wines which are rarely if ever available by the glass in Italy; 3. Go with friends and spend at least a couple of hours sampling all possible combinations. ps: the rating for service does not really apply but i had to input something..
