Not to be missed diner. The food is super tasty, delicious and the presentation is even better. No view to the canal but would highly recommend it over and over again. I will go back to try other items on the menu. Simply fantastic.

This restaurant was recommended by one of our tour guides because the local people like it. Although the food was ok, the service was so poor that it ruined our meal. I am not sure what the issue was because our group of eight was extremely polite and well mannered, but the waiter just would not serve us. Our group... More

Don't eat at a tourist trap restaurant on the Grand Canal - walk a couple of steps away from it to this delightful restaurant. We had a superb meal sitting outside at La Porta D'Acqua on a magical Venetian evening. The staff are really friendly and speak excellent English. They take great pride in the food they prepare - imaginative... More

There are so many places to eat in Venice, you're almost spoilt for choice. So picking places can be difficult as myself and my partner found out during our weekend away. However, we will ALWAYS go back to La Porta D'Acqua every time we visit Venice without a doubt. During our weekend away in Venice, me and my partner had... More

We were lucky to get a table in this restuarant, I'd really recommend booking. I ate the lemon, bass ravioli which was probably the best dish I had in Italy, really fantastic. I can't even remember what my girlfriend ate as I'm pretty sure I didn't even try it not wanting to deviate from my Ravioli. We also had the... 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.
