Found while looking for bathrooms.

They had a Panini for E8 which was good and very clean bathrooms. We never did see any public bathrooms in Venice so you basically have to stop at a restaurant and order something. The rest of the menu was more pricy.

My friend and I were looking for a place to grab a quick lunch, and we encountered this place. I ordered carbonara and my friend ordered pizza diavola. The carbonara was really oily! and it was a bit salty for my taste. Pizza was decent.

Neither the owner (dressed as a lumberjack) nor the waiter (dressed as if next going to a formal ball) smiled the whole evening. But then again, why smile if working on x-mas eve? The pizza was good, just good, crispy rim, soggy middle. The salad had vegetables. The olive oil from Italy. Extra virgin. We happened on this restaurant by... More

Stumbled across this place tonight. It was only 5.30pm but my two young children had had enough of sightseeing and were complaining of being hungry and thirsty. We received a very warm welcome. The chap opened a bottle of Sauvignon for me even though it is not advertised as being sold by the glass normally. The wine was amazing. They... More

We came across this restaurant on our way back to the hotel from a concert nearby. We had only that day arrived in Venice and were tired and hungry from a very early start to the day. It was not the usual type of restaurant we are attracted by as it does lack a little eye appeal. However, we needed... More

Attentive service & good food! We ordered a pizza that had tomato, ham, arugula & porcini mushrooms (which the waiter recommended since they were in season) & the pepperoni & blue cheese pizza. We also tried the calamari, it was fresh (not too chewy) & had a light batter coating. Tried my first Limoncello here, and the server was kind... More

Looking for a restaurant we stumbled on this one. We looked at the menu first before going in and asked about the prices for soft drinks because the evening before we were charged 4 euro for a simple can of cola somewhere else. He said the drinks were 3,50 and then when we started walking away he said but I... More

This was a recommendation from our apartment and the food was of average quality and somewhat overpriced. No locals were eating so it is a bit of a tourist trap. The service was good.

We were enjoying San Polo and looking for a good restaurant when we happened to come across this place. we all ordered different food (mushroom pasta, spagetti, pizza) and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding. We sat outside and just enjoyed the wonderful Italian food that was made from scratch. The Proprietors were happy to... More

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
