One of few places left in Venice where you can still get a one euro "ombra" of the house wine, meet your neighbours and their dogs, and where there seems to be no friction at all between Venetians and tourists. A La Scuela is a cozy neighborhood osteria with a down-to-earth attitude, simple local foods and regular regulars from the buildings around.

This tiny bar near Rialto is standing room only, with some of the best cicchetti in town. You’ll get to taste Venetian specialties fresh from the market like baccala mantecato, a creamy concotion of dried cod whipped with oil and sarde in saor, sardines in a sauce of slowly cooked onions and raisins. The selection of wines is also excellent, with a focus on small producers around the Veneto. You won’t always find it open late, so it’s best to stop in earlier before all the best dishes have been gobbled up.

Near the flat, on the Via Garibaldi, the Spighe is an oasis of healthy eating, offering organic, vegetarian and vegan fare, created by Doriana Pressotto who chooses eight unique dishes to prepare each morning. On any one day you could find a rich pumpkin soup with leek, cauliflower and sage, basmati rice with bitter puntarelle, courgette and marinated tofu, etc. From late morning until early evening the deli’s tables are full, while you can also take away. The formula is simple – choose your dishes, everything is weighed and a full plate comes to €10-€12. There is even a choice of organic non-sulphite wines, and Doriana makes her own range of pasta for people to take home.

Many of Venice’s museums have innovative cafes and restaurants – the Ca’Pesaro even has a terrace on the Grand Canal – but few visitors discover the popular self-service canteen inside the landmark Palazzo Franchetti, whose striking Venetian gothic pastel yellow facade sits next to Accademia bridge. The caffeteria has huge glass windows overlooking a lush garden, the high ceiling hanging with flamboyant chandeliers. Each lunchtime a long buffet table is laid out with 20 different freshly-prepared dishes. For €15 you can eat all you want (except drinks, dessert, coffee), and there is no problem going back for seconds. Campo San Stefano 2847, San Marco, lunch only, closed Saturday and Sunday
