One could hardly call it a restaurant or cafe. At the best one could call it a kiosk! This wonderful little place, tucked behind the law-courts in the heart of Venice, a mere stones throw from the Rialto Bridge, sells the most delicious little sandwiches...More

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
