Great out of the way spot

No tourists (except for us). Great out of the way lunch spot with fantastic bruschetta. Had a great pesto pasta and my daughter and son had awesome sandwiches, very fresh and tasty. And very reasonably priced.

The beer is a little bit expensive so it's best to go for the wine. We visited this restaurant for dinner but I think the lunch hour had a bit more touristy vibe. If you want to have a drink with tapas like a local, it's best to visit around 7pm. And later on for dinner. The sea food risotto... More

We were walking along the back streets of Venice as this was our first trip and we happened along this cute cafe around the same time our eldest of 4 said he was getting hungry. We were attempting to sit down at the tables which normally set two and with a family of 6 we were going to have to... More

Best meals we had in Venice. Both started with brushetta followed by seafood risotto for me and pasta for my husband. Brushetta is so good, but enough for 2. Risotto and pasta some of the best we've had. Pricing is very fair, not touristy! This is a small bar style restaurant, great for families and couples alike. Outside seating available.... More

Service was nice, bruschetta good. Prices not too high :) The place was not full when we went there but seemed to be favoured by the locals. Would recommend :)

I had found the reviews here so put this one on our list to try when we got to Venice. This was the absolute best food we had during our entire 10 day honeymoon. Both our plates and the tiramisu were absolutely delicious. I still think back and wish I could order more, but doubt I could get takeout from... More

The setting is not inspiring and a bit difficult to find but boy was it worth it ,.A few drinks a salad and a few other pleasures all for about £20 for the two of us,, if you can find this place it is well worth it.

Good food and reasonable price in a peaceful setting. Enjoyed the seafood risotto and sliced meat platter. House red was decent and the cheese platter looked good. Great choice for lunch if you're in the area.

This is hard to find but it is worth it when you get there. Friendly staff and delicious food. Prices are reasonable. This is a small place. It's a bar/restaurant with seating inside and out. The pastas are great. We ate there two nights.

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.
