The dinner is the most tasty experience!!! The octopus salad is incredibly soft and just the perfection! Beef carpaccio salad, black rice salad - all are delicious! The ambience, service and atmosphere - you should come and be happy!

Nice restaurant just few meters from Rialto bridge. We had good food (seafood and meat) at a reasonable price. The service was fine but the food was definitely paying more. Suggested.

This place is warm and unique. Fish is fresh and dishes are made all with quality food. I love to come here to taste good wine and have some snacks. View is flawless, something words can never describe. Prices are a bit too high, but I'm sure they can work on that. I love it, you'll love it.

What a disappointment! Excellent wine and really friendly service in a lovely restaurant overshadowed by overpriced and average food. The New Year's Eve menu was disappointing, from average portions to lukewarm, unexciting food. The menu options were fish- or meat-based. Two of the meat-based dishes were accompanied by the identical green salad. Sorbet was melted. Second sitting started late, so... More

We really loved the Cicchetti here, it seemed to us to be definitely a level up from some of the other places that we tried and seemed to be fresher... We sat outside on a chilly November night around 6 and though we didnt' have table service we didnt' mind walking into the bar and ordering drinks and wonderful treats... More

Stopped in, battled through the crowd of licals and tourists alike, ate and drank then left. Staff were attentive and as friendly as possible in such a busy establishment. Go there and enjoy. Prices were very good and the cicchetti were fantastic.

We booked this restaurant back in October for dinner on 25th December. We are 2 older couples. We called in a few days before for drinks and snacks one evening and the place was really buzzing, mostly with a younger crowd (which we love). Our Christmas Day evening meal was just superb. We all had different starters, all of which... More

Nice cosy environment. Had the lamb chops, grilled pork and various types of pasta. Overall average food quality and service; not something that I will make a point to go back again.

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.
