Beautiful setting, on quiet corner of piazza. Excellent, fresh, creative dishes. Seafood-dominated menu, obtained from the nearby Rialto fish market. I had a flounder that was not on the menu, perfectly baked with olives, capers, lemons, and tomatoes. Best meal we had in Venice!

We had a delightful dinner here last night, The restaurant is lovely with white table clothes and Murano glasses. The food was pasta and fish. The fish was fresh and wonderfully prepared. The best part was our waiter, who was very funny and charming. He told us what and how's we needed to order. When one of us wanted to... More

I was disappointed to see negative reviews as we had an extremely positive experience. The food was delicious--especially the lemon ricotta/sea bass ravioli! Our waiter was very engaging and helpful. We had a large group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. No complaints about service.

Visited this restaurant twice during our two night stay - once for lunch and once for dinner - both times the food was delicious and the service was second to none - well worth a visit if you want good value, great food.

We went to Porta D'Acqua upon recommendation of the receptionist of our hotel. The staff was very friendly, however, both the service and the food did not really meet our expectations. Water and wine only came after the 1st course was served and there was a clear lack of salt in all the dishes we had. We asked for salt... More

After reading all the reviews for this restaurant we decided to have our last nights meal here. I am so glad we did and can't recommend highly enough! Service impeccable, knowledgable staff, fantastic wine even by the glass and exquisite food! You simply must eat here! You won't be disappointed! And I'm super fussy and eat out in London restaurants... More

This restaurant was recommended by other TripAdvisors and locals as one of the places to eat. We had walked past a few times on the way back to our hotel and from the outside it looked like a great place to eat - Good menu on display, nice decor, off the beaten track etc.... However, when we went nothing could... More

This is a really nice little restaurant on the other side of the Grand Canal. Take a left after you cross the Rialto bridge, walk along the canal for five streets, turn right, go a couple of blocks to the church square and you are there. It's a little around the corner. The ambiance is wonderful. Beautifully decorated, really good... 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.
