Drinks in the square

We dropped by the bar at the back of the restaurant on the square behind and enjoyed a few prosecco's standing under the arches. Nice atmosphere and affordable drinks.

After a glowing article in Travel and Leisure magazine, that touted both food and view at this restaurant, I excitedly made a reservation. The restaurant is located just across the Rialto and has seating looking at the canal. Unfortunately, people buy drinks and sit on the docks abutting the restaurant so that you don't have a great view even when... More

We've eaten here at least half a dozen times on various trips to Venice. Great location overlooking the Grand Canal & Gondola/Vaporetto station. This time though the weather wasn't kind but hey! no problem - the staff quietly & quickly moved all the al fresco diners inside to the indoor restaurant (upstairs). I didn't know they had tables up there.... More

Beware. This place had the worst customers service. We waited over 30 to 45 minutes for our seats due to we wanted to sit outside to see all the walking attractions. As we waited I guess it's turns into dinner only time. Which they never said we had to orders a dinner to orders drinks and appetizers. I told them... More

For a great evening in the warm weather: Table #1 outside right on the canal. Few better sites/sights in Venice. Fresh fish of course; really tasty, imaginative appetizers. Good wine by the glass and bottle. Well-priced. Reserve a table and sit. A memorable evening for both the food and the view.

We were near the fish market after crossing the Rialto Bridge and it started to rain. I had seen the Bancogiro sign when we passed earlier, and remembered reading a review onTrip Advisor. We ran for the little place, and had a glass of wine while waiting out the rain. I'm glad I had read the review. It helped.

The place is just on the canal and there are tables outside where you can eat. The food is very good and tasty: I've took a filet and it was perfectly cooked. I believe is a bit expensive (you are in Venice though..) but is definitely worth to have dinner there.

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.
