Located just a couple of minutes away from the famous Rialto bridge under an alley is a hidden gem called All'Arco. A place to devour authentic Italian dishes and smooth wines.

Since the Rialto market is close by, fresh sea food specials always make their way on the menu here. Their cicheti, plates of langoustines, fried calamari, sardines and prawns are must try with some bread on the side. Their wine selection is quite impressive and this happens to be one of those few places in Venice where you can enjoy cheap but good wines. This is an ideal spot for a pre-dinner drink, if you are looking for one.

The Rialto Market is such a vast place with its tiny alleyways that it is known to get shoppers thirsty as well as hungry! If you happen to be experiencing such a situation, then just ask around for building no. 213 and make a beeline for it.

Try the domestic wines on offer which are sure to impress the locals around you at the counter. After their initial nod of approval, maybe you could strike up a conversation about other interesting places around.
