We went to Al Pesador for lunch on what was our only full day in Venice. After a wonderful walking tour in the morning we wanted somewhere to sit down, have a pleasant lunch and watch the world go by. We got exactly that, amidst people milling around the Rialto and water traffic cruising up and down the Grand Canal... More

Strategically positioned except that we had to go upstairs because of the rain. Great wines, nicely done food, amazing baccala' and lots of spritz! All to ruined by a terrific yelling group of Veneziani erupted in many chants, super loudly, celebrating a birthday, to the point of making impossible to talk to my guests. Please next time either tell us... More

Recommended by our Santa Croce B&B (Campiello Zen), this is a great stop for some cicheti and wine, while you watch the crazy traffic on the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge. A bit more pricey due to its location, but still fun.

A very nice fish restaurant! Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff! A great view to the grand canal! The food had a very good quality! It was a very nice dinner for our wedding anniversary! It was a little bit expensive but I think it worth it!

We had reached Venice after long flights from Los Angeles via Zurich, and were tired. Our hotel - Pensione Guerrato was nearby, so we strolled over for a quick bite. Since it was so late, we decided to eat lightly. Grand Canal side seating was very romantic - we could spend time watching the traffic go by. Our first shared... More

We have been in Italy for almost two weeks now and my husband wanted a meal that was not pasta or pizza. Thoroughly enjoyed the cuddle fish and I the suckling pig. It was a cool night and we enjoyed the blankets provided. Friendly to Americans. Not cheap but we were able to sit outside for dinner which we thought... More

Visited here for a light lunch and were treated very kindly. Sat outside with a delightful view of The Grand Canal. We each selected pappa al pomodoro which was a fantastic cold tomatoe soup with smoked mozzarella cheese.....very nice. Had a spritz and some wine and enjoyed the view. Service was very good. Would return.

On our last night in Venice we decided to have dinner here and I am glad we did. The service was with a smile and efficient. The food was well presented and tasted great, if fact it was the best food we had in Venice by far. The ambiance was great on the side of the canal, lots of people... More

Service varies so much on this small island so it was nice to be warmly received at this restaurant while looking for a suitable eatery for me, my wife and 8 year old daughter. An excellent location situated yards from the striking Rialto bridge and with tables overlooking the grand canal made this an overall enjoyable event. This was topped... More

In 2010, the visit to Al Pesador was the most magical experience of our trip to Venice. We vowed to return. In August this year our itinerary was tight and we only had one night so booked a table. It rained. The magic of the place is sitting outside so we cancelled the table. We went for lunch the day... More
