If it's good enough for Casanova, who used to bring potential conquests here, this bar tucked behind the Rialto fish market is good enough for you. One of the oldest bacari in Venice (it was mentioned in the 1566 census), its prices are equally old school too, and its spread of cichetti—from octopus in tomato sauce to sarde in saor—are super-traditional. For larger dishes, there's a tiny room that doubles as a restaurant out back.
