Wonderful pizza, reasonably priced

Most things in Venice are really expensive, but we found this place on a wrong turn looking for something else and we were really happy we did. We had a big pizza with meats and cheeses, and for the two of us, with a soda, we paid 29 Euro. Not cheap, but we felt it was a pretty decent value... read more

We were here on both days of our stop in Venice, and were not disappointed. We came across it by accident the first day, but we made sure that we found it again for our final dinner of the trip. We were treated like family and had a great time and great meal. The owner and his staff were terrific.

This became our home base restaurant. Or the place you go back to when your spending a week in a town. You like the food, surroundings and the owner greets and remembers you. The food is pretty good too, with a leaning towards seafood, great seafood. I guess in a town like Venice, with its abundance of seafood you can't... More

We had been walking with a kid for a very long time, and it was after lunchtime. This place was opened and our kid wanted a pizza. We ordered two pizzas and they were ok. My husband ordered sole. The fish may have been ok if the restaurant owner didn't mashed the fish when serving it. The fish looked horrible... More

Visting Venice for the first time, we discovered this restaurant whilst wandering the streets and were so glad we did! The food was wonderful and the staff were excellent. They could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend trying the mussels.

Found this place by chance wandering around at night. First the negatives. Cutlery was dirty (they did replace when asked), and our food took forever to arrive despite it not being that busy. The couple next to us ordered literally a minute before us and had finished their mains before our starter arrive (cold cuts, not exactly a complicated dish!)... More

The food was ok. The price was ok as well. We've got here by mistake but we don't regret. The only downside, they serve pizza only after 7 PM and since we got at about 6PM we could either wait until 7 or have other thigs, which we actually did.

We are regular customers at this restaurant, having eaten here on a large number of occasions over four years. When we arrived last week, we discovered to our concern, that the restaurant was under new ownership, but we need not have worried. The new owners have brought with them a new chef who is really good, and the pasta in... More

We came upon this place when looking for somewhere less touristy off the main grand canal. We were made to feel very welcome and the menu had just what we were lokking for...spaghetti! There were just a few locals there when we arrived but the staff spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. Very Italian too so the comment... More

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.
