    Not in Manhattan, but at least claiming to be Venetian is al di la, on 5th Ave, in Park Slope. A little while back I had a cicchetti plate that was offered as an appetizer special(not on the regular menu, I think)--grilled sardines, cuttlefish in ink, bacalao, and something else I can't remember. Everything was great, though it was considerably more expensive than anything else on the (incredibly reasonable) menu. There's an inexpensive Arneis served by the glass that was perfect with it.

      al di la is fine indeed. in nyc, try bar cicchetti 220 houston I believe. food not a good as al di la, but they do serve ok ciccchetti. across the street from s.o.b.'s

      I believe there have been earlier postings about Venetian cuisine in NY. Search for Piccolo Venezia.

        I have also heard recently about a place in Chelsea (like at 22nd and 7th?) that bills itself as venetian - I think it might have been on the Times Weekend dining map of italian regional places a Friday or two ago.
