In Venice, dining well on a budget requires exploration. The best and most affordable restaurants are hidden in the less-traveled alleyways. For an inexpensive and informal option, visit any osteria or bacario in town and create a meal from the vast array of cicchetti (meat- and cheese-filled pastries; ‚1-3), tidbits of seafood, rice, meat, and tramezzini (triangular slices of soft white bread with any imaginable filling). The key ingredients of Venetian cuisine come fresh from the sea. Spaghetti al vongole (pasta with fresh clams and spicy vegetables) is served on nearly every menu. Good local wines include the sparkling white prosecco della Marca or the red valpolicella. BILLA supermarket, Strada Nuova, Cannaregio 3660, is near Campo Apostoli. (Open M-Sa 8:30am-8pm, Su 9am-8pm.
