Good food

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 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

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

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

Chinese owner. Chinese cook but excellent typically Italian food. Classic dishes that an Italian chef couldn't do better and finally the bill is exceptional, one of the best value in Venice

Stumbled across this place. Very basic but great pizzas, calzone and pastas - all freshly cooked. Pizzas are huge. A litre of house wine was 7 euros! Nice people. So good, as we were on a budget we ate there for 3 nights and never spent more than 33 euros. Worth a visit

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.
