I was just going to have one soft shell fried crab, and then we were going to go to dinner.
Then I was just going to have another one, I mean, since we were still there and a table had opened up next to the bar.
Then I might as well try the frittata with artichokes.
And get another crab….
While I love Rome’s aperitivo culture, Venice’s snacks are another level.
That is why you will pay for them. Rather than an all inclusive €5 or €10 charge, chichetti in Venice are usually individually priced.
You can order as many as you like or – if you have more self-control than I do – you can stick that single soft shelf crab after taking in the views from Piazza San Marco’s campanile.
Since we had an evening train, I opted for more cicchetti rather than an early dinner or a sad in-transit meal.
Don’t mind if I do.
Again. And Again.
My favorite bar in Venice for cicchetti was Al Portego.
The cozy wine bar at Castello San Lio 6014, has €3 spritzes (YES), and a delectable selection of cicchetti to choose from.

We ‘LOVED’ this part about our trip to Venice!
It is one of the best bits! Can’t wait to go back and eat some more 🙂
