Our first night in Venice, we decided to give this restaurant a try since we've read some great reviews; however, we were slightly disappointed with the level of service and the food. Upon seating us, we asked the server for some recommendations and with a very disinterested tone, he said that everything is good and to just pointed out some... More

Happened upon this place by accident, just looking for somewhere to eat off the beaten track. Excellent, fresh dishes which felt like they had just come from the market that day. Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.

Hotel booked a table for late lunch. They kept open for us. Met by nice waiter. Drinks and food came quickly and was very good. Nice outside seating. Excellent place for lunch. Nice for kids too.

We stumbled upon this place. It looked attractive. It wasn't bursting at the seams but was busy enough not to ring alarm bells. We were given a nice table outside. Service was very slow and disinterested. We ordered a bottle of Valpollicella (local wine and pricey enough to expect it to be drinkable). It was very poor and we very... More

Very good restaurant in the middle of a highly touristic zone. If you're in Venice, and want to eat well without spending much, I highly recommend this restaurant. Creative and fresh, you can safely escape from the same menus that you'll find all over Venice.

We had a very nice meal. My wife's eggplant parmigiana was better than my spaghetti carbonara. My appetizer was the sampler. It was especially good. Their house wine is very good too. The bread, however, is uninspired.

We could not have been happier with our dinner at this little gem across the Ponte Rialto from San Marco. An easy walk from our hotel, the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Artichoke, Parmesan, shrimp and arugula salad lightly dressed in an orange dressing, and plate of 4 appetizer selections were terrific. Pasta with peas, bacon and... More

Really tasty food, good value wine and friendly and attentive service. The waiter was very knowledgable about gluten free and extremely helpful, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there, so much that we are going back tonight!

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.
