In­dul­ge in a ty­pi­cal Ve­ne­tian 'ci­che­to' ex­pe­rien­ce en­han­ced by the sce­nic lu­xu­ry of the Da­nie­li Bi­stro

In Venice, the­re's an an­cient tra­di­tion, so an­cient that its na­me de­ri­ves from La­tin. Ac­cor­ding to hi­sto­ri­cal do­cu­men­ta­tion, the na­me ‘cic­chet­ti' stems from the la­te-La­tin word ‘cic­cus' (small). Cic­chet­ti are the ‘bi­te-si­zed' ap­pe­ti­zers that Ve­ne­tians lo­ve to eat at pa­ve­ment ca­fés whi­le en­joy­ing their sur­roun­dings. An in­te­gral part of the ri­tual is a glass of wi­ne or an ‘om­bra de vin' (sha­dow) be­cau­se, in by­go­ne days, fla­sks of wi­ne we­re pre­ser­ved in the sha­dow of

St. Mark's bell to­wer. Al­thou­gh a wi­de va­rie­ty of ‘cic­chet­ti' are avai­la­ble th­rou­ghout the ci­ty, the Da­nie­li Bi­stro, lo­ca­ted on the top floor of the hi­sto­ric Pa­laz­zo Dan­do­lo, of­fers one of the be­st ‘cic­chet­ti' ex­pe­rien­ces in to­wn.
