Time Out says

Much-loved for its generous plates of salumi, cheeses and cicchetti, plus a carefully considered wine list and relaxed atmosphere.

It’s all about meat, cheese and wine at this lively enoteca near a bend in the Rio del Malcanton canal in Santa Croce. Crowd- and wallet-pleasing platters meant for sharing flow from the kitchen as easily as the wine flows among locals and tourists at this fun, laid-back establishment. With exposed brick walls, wood-beam ceilings and bottles stacked everywhere, this place is just as a wine bar should be—cozy, inviting and unpretentious.

Time Out tip: Ask Andrea, one of Cantina Arnaldi’s two affable owners and a wine expert, to select your wine by the glass. You’ll get an education in the process!
