Party Earth Cantinone Già Schiavi Review

The Scene

Although the name of this quaint cantina along Fondamenta Nani may be disputed – especially since it has one name on the sign and another on the awning – there is no doubt that Cantinone Già Schiavi is a simple slice of heaven...

Although the name of this quaint cantina along Fondamenta Nani may be disputed – especially since it has one name on the sign and another on the awning – there is no doubt that Cantinone Già Schiavi is a simple slice of heaven.

Situated on the wide and picturesque canal at Ponte San Trovaso, the bar draws a constant crowd of spirited wine drinkers who show up to linger under the shade of the awning or perch on the canal wall.

There is definitely nothing fancy about the place as Cantinone prefers to keep things simple with dark wood furnishings, a long, rustic bar, and ceiling-high stacks of wines and liquors – much to the delight of the cheerful neighbors, colleagues, and classmates who pack the place at lunchtime to clamor for the attention of the barman and a plate of exquisite cicchetti.

A quintessential Venetian locale, the beloved Cantinone Già Schiavi offers a neighborly social vibe where anyone is welcome to spend an afternoon shooting the breeze over a glass of wine or two.

Tip from Emma:

Perfect place to indulge in a traditional Venetian ombre – a small dose of wine served at any time of day – and to mingle with a cheery local crowd along the canal.

  • Crowd

    Casual, spirited, and chatty, mostly locals and students, all ages.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Conversation, local gossip, and people-watching along the canal.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Both traditional and contemporary cicchetti, including toasted bread with rich toppings, salamis and cheeses, and skewers of grilled seafood.

  • Prices

    Cicchetti €1–€3/piece. Wine €1–€3, Venetian spritz €2, coffee €1.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Great any time for a quick lunch, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a pre-dinner aperitif around 6:30pm.
