Nicely located and quiet

The restaurant is in the very animated quarter of San Polo, close to a crowded street but 50m away of it so it's very quiet. The food is good, service too and it's not expensive for Venice

My husband and I ate at Al Paradiso for our first dinner in Venice. Staff, food, and atmosphere were all amazing. Dinning room was small, but it made for a warm and cozy dinner. We both really enjoyed and will return if in Venice again.

We had a lovely meal here - the restaurant is in the Rialto area, just off a very busy street, but the street it is on is quiet. The staff have worked together for years and the place has the feel of family. The one thing that was bad was that we had been booked to an outside table at... More

Best place to have dinner in Venice, everything was delicious. Swordfish carpaccio, mussels and seafood pasta. Service is fast and kind, garden is enough cold with vantillators.

We shared 2 first plates - scallops with a light tomato sauce and polenta, and then pasta in an incredible pesto made by Giordano himself. For our entree we shared Sole, done perfectly with lemon and olive oil, and served with... More

I guess that it was the special attention of the owner which really drew my attention. My girlfriend had the flower of the zucchini fried in batter as a starter. The batter was a bit heavy in one of them for her and she left the fried batter to the side. Two minutes after they had taken the plates away,... More

Not to be missed for a special night out- the food and atmosphere are wonderful and not touristy. Our concierge recommended it and we went there for my husband's 60th birthday.

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.
