Good to sit and watch boats and sip excellent coffee

Near a bend in the Grand Canal not far from the Ponte di Rialto is Caffé Vergnano. If it really has been there since 1882 it must have undergone many changes (and they continue; chip-board cladding around the pillars outside was being painted white as we sat there with our coffee). We sat and... read more

We were ok on our lunch on 1882, but polenta was normal, pasta also and waiters attention poor. Wouldn't die if I eat there again but wouldn't repeat

The restaurant is in perfect location, overlooking the Grand Canal. Perfect for a break and refreshments during sightseeing of magical Venice. The service is excellent. Cakes are perfect. I wish I was there now...

Our legs were weary and our tummies were empty after a long day of walking around Venice. So we found this little place for a glass of wine and dessert around the Rialto Bridge area. We happily found that the back of the ristorante was on the Grand Canal where we spent leisurely time watching people and gondolas float by... More

Fab location and we were delighted to see in the menu that they welcomed vegetarians and even had separate veggie menu. BUT... Having ordered we had a very long wait, so much so that other customers were concerned. When I asked the waiter he said.they had lost the vegetables as they weren't asked for them often. When it came, My... More

This is a great place to rest your legs, have a very nice and reasonably priced coffee whilst watching the hive of activity on the Grand Canal very close by. We also returned for a light lunch which again was good quality and reasonably priced for a table in such a advantageous position next to the Grand Canal close by... More

This is great place to sit and grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Near the canal so you get to watch the water traffic, very close to the Rialto, but no view of it. The coffee we had was lovely and prices not too bad

This is the experience we came to Venice to have. We dined al fresco and watched the boats traverse the Rialto. The tables are right along the grand canal, just adjacent to the Rialto Bridge. The service was a little slow, but they were very busy and we didn't care anyway - we were in Venice eating along the grand... More

awesome really good place. if you will go to mestre caffeVergnano. plz tryAny manager will tell you how challenging it is to write consistent and richly detailed employee reviews. Getting the wording just right, and providing concrete examples in the performance appraisal feedback can take a lot of time
