Le Bistrot de Venise, San Marco 4687, Venice

This cozy bistro is a popular meeting place for young people in Venice and for Venetian artists. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and an unusual menu with at times eccentric dishes. Sit down and enjoy people watching or write postcards to your friends. Eat a nice, fresh salad for lunch or even a risotto. In the evening you can get something to eat at much later times than at most of the other Venetian restaurants, so if you are hungry late, come in and enjoy. The menu features local specialties and even unique recipes from a Venetian cook book from the 15th century. There are often small events like art exhibits, poetry readings or even wine tastings in the back room, so don’t forget to ask what’s going on.
