“Made us feel Venician.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2015

This was recommended to us by a local guide and we spent quite a while trying to find it. It was worth the effort. It is very small and there is no choice but to stand with the locals with your coffee and cake, both of which were good and cheap.

“a must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2015

Family run pasticerria with the freshest pastries. They had a variety of cookies and tarts, but the Venetian strudel was great.

“Back again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2015

I returned to Venice again this year and I was so happy to see my favourite bakery is still as popular and lovely as ever! Lots of homemade cakes and pastries and the hot chocolate is amazing! Even better as I got to share the puddings here with my mum for a early mothers day treat! Still the best sweets in venice!

“Perfect pastries and hot coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2015

We stayed in an appartment nearby for 3 night, and Rizzardini was our place for having breakfast - the Italian way: a cup of cappuccino or coffee and a croissant. Don't dare to sleep too late, you get no croissant! Well, a super soft fritola (a Carnival fried pastry) will do too... And have a chat with the other clients about the weather, the high tide coming in few hours and the opening hours of the post office. Just like you're at your usual coffee bar back home.
Every now and then a patissier comes from the door on the back with lots of fresh pastries, then everybody becomes silent, looking mouthwatering and counting the calories.

“To-die-for pastries and best coffee of all times!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2015

We went there after reading its nice review in the guide book Le Petit Futé, Venise.
After searching for it in the rain for three hours and after having visited almost all the attractions of Venice in one day, we finally found it! You cannot sit there (there is no actual chair) but drinking that espresso and eating 2 or 3 of their delicious pastries was enough to give us the needed energy even though we were exhausted and were not seating.
Their pastries were so incredible we even returned and bought two dozens of pastries to keep in our little hotel room, just to bring some on the airplane on our way home.
Very friendly staff, funny and talkative!
One of our food highlights of our trip to Venice!
