Amazing wine and cheese

Found this place while walking the back streets just off the canal looking for somewhere just for a glass of wine and a beer. Owner was friendly with a cheeky sense of humour and made us feel right at home, so much so we came back the following night for more drinks and an after meal cheese board... read more

Always go off the tourist areas and sometimes, not always, you will find the real thing. I wanted to find an attentive restaurant, with exacting taste, yet humble enough to cater to my tastes and my family's. Guess what, we found it and my daughters had the best beef and my wife and I had the best fresh fish ever.... More

We ate here on previous recommendation of good calzone and it lived up to its expectations, really was a fantastic size and flavour, service was good on the whole, had to ask for things a couple of times but no problem when you're having a relaxed evening, unfortunately the house wine was very sweet, both white and red, would ask...

The pizza was amazing, some of the best we had in Italy... It was nice to find a spot that was away from the crowds and enjoyed watching the local life go on around us. It is definitely worth finding this place on your visit to Venice.

Had lunch here; tried their pizzas, which were pretty good. The thing I like about this restaurant is that it is on a very quiet intersection. We were able to eat outside, without being overwhelmed by the heavy traffic of tourists.

We(six) happened upon this, what seemed, out of the way Pizzeria on our first stroll through the narrow streets and alleyways in Venice. It was a real find. The wait staff, friendly, helpful and attentive. We shared pizzas, had a mixed salad and white and red wine. One of the owners spoke with us and told us of his history... More

We happened upon Antico Panificio after a wonderful morning of aimlessly wandering around Venice, looking (successfully I might add) for hidden treasures. It was far enough off of the main tourist strip to feel "safe," and close enough to our hotel that it wouldn't take us long to get back and: 1) pass out happily with bellies full of good... More

We decided to visit this place because it had a cosy location. We ordered some very simple stuff, lasagne, spaghetti and 3 pizza's. We got our drinks pretty fast. But then the waittime started. As we sat and waited for our food a party of 6 people arrived and they got served before we did. So we had to wait... More

My 12 euro pizza came without any cheese on! Maybe i ordered the wrong thing but if you like cheese on your pizza best to check before you order. Also asked for it well done which they ignored. They also put a table right next to ours once we had sat down so we couldnt leave without getting people to... More

The food here was good, sea bass for 2 was 60 Euro, but the food took about 1 hour to come out. Service was good, just sooo slow.

Staying in San Polo

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.
