Taste some of Venice's local specialties, such as the bite-sized cicchetti served at bars all over the city. These tapas-like snacks are popular with Venetians who meet friends after work for a drink and a few bites before dinner.

Traveler Tips

The tour was about the right length and not too long (2.5hrs) it was just street food so don't expect restaurant food.We both enjoyed it.

Venice street food trip
E_L, Mar 2023
Great guide. Remember to give yourself enough time to get there!!! You are going to walk a bit. Portion is not too big. Fun experience.
Angelo_S, Mar 2023

Suzy_L, Mar 2023
Fabulous food tour with local guide Anna who was not only friendly but very knowledgeable and helpful. A great way to spend a morning in Venice exploring the fish and fruit markets and sampling plenty of local drinks 😁
Mustapha_N, Feb 2023
Would Highly recommend the Venice food tour. Denys from Venice was an absolute blast and myself and my art we enjoyed our tour. Very insightful, funny and accommodating to everyone on the tour. Well worthy it and highly recommend if you want to taste and see all the beautiful historic sights. Thank you Denys hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful Evening!
Allison_H, Feb 2023
Awesome experience! Ana our tour guide was amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. A great way to spend an evening in Venice!
Worst Street food tour of my life
rohaneccles, Jan 2023
Ana the guide was rude and abrupt. Couldn't wait for the tour to end by the pace she walked through the city. We did not get enough food and our experience was totally different to some of these other reviews.
Good and bad
Ellen_O, Dec 2022
Stops were good. Food was good. Guide Ana walked way too fast and never looked back to see if the group was with her. Didn’t allow any opportunity to see anything along the way. Raced from place to place. Even caught up with the group that started 1/2 hr before us. Recommend the tour with a different guide.
Unfortunately if was cancelled, unsure why.
Lorraine_F, Dec 2022
It was cancelled and I hadn’t been notified until I text the guide whilst waiting for people to attend. The guide had tried to call me but I had changed SIM cards as came from OS, but there was no email contact and I would have seen that had one been sent. It was disappointing as I was really looking forward to it- and I’m unsure why it was cancelled…..perhaps minimum numbers weren’t reached.

Very nice trip!
Susan_C, Dec 2022
Great trip with good food choices. Our guide, Denis from Venice, was fun and entertaining. Good value for money as we ate our way around Venice!
Food, history, site seeing around Venice with Vanessa- magical!
Simon_P, Dec 2022
Wonderful experience, our guide, Vanessa, was warm, funny and very knowledgeable. We learnt a lot about Venice, it’s history, carnival as well as tasting a selection of great food in wonderful places. Thank you Vanessa for a great time and for booking us a fantastic restaurant in the evening. All ten of us had a fantastic time and the Gondola trip you suggested was fantastic. Venice was beautiful and Vanessa made it magical.

Linda_S, Nov 2022
This tour was a disappointment; do not waste your time and money. The only good food was the pastries. The rest was cold, stale, and unappetizing. The tour guide was friendly and informative. The end point is a very long distance from the start point; we had a difficult time finding our way back to our hotel.
Can’t go wrong with this tour!
morrissey, Nov 2022
Anna, our guide, had great energy and shared so much of her knowledge of Venice with us and the local places we visited to eat were perfect. She was truly amazing! If you do this tour, ask for her to be your guide!
Great food tour
Lorraine_H, Oct 2022
We had Ana as a guide, who was brilliant! We did this on our first day in Venice, it really helped us get our bearings and Ana gave us some great recommendations and help for the rest of our stay! Really recommend this tour, great for foodies and getting some wider local knowledge and history too
Emina_C, Oct 2022
This was a disappointing tour for us for multiple reasons: - There was very little food - total of 4 savoury snacks (a tramezzini, a polenta bite and 2 cicchetti) each 2 bites of food and a small gelato at the end. - The food market closes early so an afternoon tour means that the way you see the market is from the photos on guide's phone; market being in the name of this tour is therefore misleading -The guide was unapproachable and brusque and repeatedly reminded us of what a nuisance us tourists are for the Venetians and seemingly to her The one thing that I found was done well is accommodating children food tastes

Lovely evening stroll with food
Graham_P, Oct 2022
Great guide, nice food and lovely amble through back streets of Venice. Ended with the best ice cream I’ve had in a long time

Good tour
Ryan_S, Oct 2022
Our guide was knowledgeable and we enjoyed the little bits of food. I would not come on a completely empty stomach as the food items were small and not plentiful. We wish the guide did a better job and bringing the group together as a whole versus talking to people individually.

Food was really good ,...
Suzanne_D, Oct 2022
Food was really good , the day was beautiful and our guide was very nice. I love food tours as much for the food as the exposure to the less touristy spots
Hidden Venice
Julie_T, Oct 2022
It was good to explore the more hidden parts of the city and experience the tucked away Baccaro which may otherwise have remained undiscovered.
Would recommend
Doyinsola_I, Oct 2022
Denys was our guide. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a really good experience walking around and trying the food.
Must have a guide who can command the group and has a stronger louder voice
Barbara_C, Oct 2022
We enjoyed the tour but there were too many people and our guide was too soft spoken. She wasn’t able to come and the group. We were dissatisfied with the experience.
