Very Nice

Good atmosphere and good product. Really nice service. Do not be late for lunch because you will not be able to have the tasting menu.

Read the book! And then reserve a table. And then listen to what is special for the day. Then order! No need to order the most expensive wine of the comprehensive wine list, but it helps to have an idea of what you want before talking to the owner. Whatever we are here was just sublime! No fuss, no "schikeria",... More

If proof were needed that the lesser-esteemed red book cannot be trusted this is a good start. How many people in this busy restaurant sought it out for its culinary majesty and how many were steered there by their hotel concierges? How many people would ever go back? This place, so full of its own pomp and self-image, is an... More

It is so easy to have such a great meal anywhere in Venice I was totally disappointed with the food here. My tuna carpaccio had a strong fishy smell and the fried spider crab came with a terrible polenta (that thing came out of the can for sure). The only thing that saved the meal was the baba au rhum.... More

I had an excellent meal, the six-course tasting menu, at Da Fiore, which is definitely more upscale than the Osteria label would indicate. This is a starred Michelin restaurant, with an elegant room, food, and pricing to match. I particularly enjoyed the special soft-shelled crab, and the fresh-water eel courses. My meal was truly extraordinary. Dinner here is a leisurely... More

This was my choice of venue to celebrate my birthday - and what a good choice it proved to be. Everything was done well and at a standard that suits this fine dining establishment. The food was beautifully cooked and tasted delicious - I particularly enjoyed the soft shell crabs that were in season at the time - but everything... More

Wandering the San Polo district, we bumped into Da Fiore. We took a chance on the basis of the beautiful woodwork from the outside, stepped in, and beheld the most elegant and tasteful rooms and welcoming staff. Absolute perfection in every dish and true unobtrusive and magnificent service. So happy to have experienced Da Fiore!

Upon entering was chastised for not respnding to their questionnaire, told no reservation but given table anyway, odd. My wifes menu did not have pricing, an insult to her. The maitre'd was going to call police about next tables request for a Coke product. Started with the risotto, very good but not worth $ 35 per person. Wine list outrageously... More

This restaurant well deserves its Michelin star. Notable dishes include bacala, roasted eel and tuna arranged on a plate in small diamonds. Each dish was accompanied by intricate designs of greens and sauces. Wine somallier provided excellent advice and the other service was also attentive and helpful. Expensive but worth it!

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.
