Perhaps the most beguiling view in Venice is from this enticing osteria, right opposite the Squero di San Trovaso. Sip coffee or wine and nibble cicchetti while observing the activity at the medieval gondola boatyard and workshop, on the other side of the Rio di San Trovaso (drinks served in glasses inside, but in plastic cups if you want to stand outside). It’s essentially a place for a light lunch or aperitivi rather than a full meal. Snack on such delights as Carnia smoked sausage, baccalà crostini (cod), anchovies, blue cheese, tuna, and sardines in saor for a total of around 16€ to 18€ per person. Spritz from 2.50€ .
