Great lunch spot, excellent sandwiches

This is a very good spot to stop for a quick and delicious lunch. The sandwich menu is insanely long and the sandwiches themselves are delicious. They heat the sandwiches so if you don't want it warm, you need to tell them. They also have a few specials each day (when I was there, there was a... read more

Only stopped for a coffee here but staff are very friendly, no price discrimination if you are a tourist (a rarity in Venice) a good place to stop for a coffee on the go

We followed the local guys to this small bar first itme, but we went back several times later, because the mood is very Italian. Locals came in, drink an espresso and Aperol, talking to each other loudly. The place is crowded, but the feeling is great.

I was really impressed when I saw such a long and interesting list of sandwiches. You will need a good translator because everything it's written in Italian BUT sandwiches are amazing!!! We were two andpaid 20 euros, having 3 sandwiches and 2 red wine glasses homemade.

Waited forever to be recognized by server/owner. She tended to people who were white first. Would not come back for more mistreatment.

Had a quick lunch here recently. Not my first visit. They arent always very friendly but were fine this time. However they really have lovely little sandwiches and its really near one of my favourite shops-sabbie e nebbie-so always good for a pit-stop.

Just stumbled upon this cute little bar/cafe after a morning of seeing the sights and walking around Venice. We had our first (& best!) Bellini here and a yummy panini - all served from a very friendly and helpful waiter. Grab an outside table to watch the world go past - great people watching. Relaxed and good food - highly...

We had a lovely light lunch in Bar ai Nomboli on our first day in Venice. We sat outside, had two salads, a beer, a wine, 2 coffees and it came to ~30?. Friendly staff (English spoken, though this is true in most of Venice), good choice of lunches (sandwiches, pasta, salads), and not much in the middle of the... More

This family bar stop is just what you need after visiting the Frari or any of the attractions in San Polo. The tramezzini are exquisitely fresh. This reminded me that there was something wonderful about Wonderbread! The problem was that the slices were too thick and not lovely and delicate like these tramezzini. The family and locals are friendly here.... More

It was lunchtime and we were starving - then we came across Ai Noboli - obviously family-run mum/dad/son. All there servicing clients whether in the kitchen, on the coffee machine or front counter. We were served quickly, and watched many come and go - all satisified with their meal purchases. We went there twice once in May 13 and then... 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.
