Castello, 4357; Campo SS Filippo e Giacomo, Venice; Tel.: 041-5224292
Set back from the Riva degli Schiavoni lies one of Venice's most popular wine bars, expanded to include an elbow-to-elbow trattoria/pizzeria in back. Its name refers to the toothpick-speared marinated anchovies that join other bite-size snacks lining the popular front bar of this friendly bacaro, where you can enjoy an excellent selection of dozens of Veneto and Italian wines by the glass. Tables move out onto the small piazza in warm weather.

Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, 11, Milan; Tel.: 02-85979932
