Cicchetti Bar

Cicchetti Bar


"Cicchetti" are little snacks that are served at bars in Venice. They include things like tiny salami sandwiches, small plates of olives, various fish and other pastes spread on breads (like crostini), and whatever else comes to mind –- or to market.

Typically, one eats cicchetti during the day; at lunch time, or in the late afternoon, usually accompanied by a small glass of wine.
