Cheap bottled beer, a selection of draft beers that change often and friendly staff. The prices are cheap-ish considering its Venice. A good place for a quiet drink.

Happen to stumble upon the Devil's Forest as well wandered through the side alleys of Venice. Frequented by locals, tour guides and ex-pats, or is a great place for lunch or a few drinks.

Eduardo (the server) could not have been better!!!! He introduced me to the best dry Pinot Grigio I ever had! The food was so delicious! We both got sandwiches that were savory and flavorful! My husband tried all three different Magners; pear, original and berry!...More

First the name is just cool and what attracted us to the bar! Daring sexy babe had a spritz and I had a Guinness (more than one). Need a drink and a small bite then this is the place with busting the wallet.

The perfect change from everything Italian waits here; IPAs, Fries, Burgers. It's dark and dimly lit and gloriously cold in here. It's an authentic pub. Order the fries and a goose island IPA and watch the football game. A perfect release and change.

Cool, comfy and very reasonably priced drinks.... €2.50 for prosecco. Very handy to dive in to when they swathes of Russian and Japanese tourists come off the cruises. Irish bar feel... I'd definitely come again. And wouldn't hesitate to recommend...but don't expect too much...its only...More

There are two Devi's Forest Pubs in Venice. Around 7e a pint; it looks like a mere 2.50e for a vino casa. Bill (which I still have): 21.50. Can't comment about the food as we didn't eat there.
