A very nice osteria in Venice, in Santa Croce area. It's a vegetarian restaurant but there are also some meat meals. Nice atmosphere and it's an osteria without tourist menu( pizza, pasta... ), price is correct. There are 2 services at night (7pm30 or 9pm30) so you can't take your time with your friends if you chose the 1rst service... More

This restaurant is perfect for lunch: it's casual, has attitude, serves up inventive vegetable dishes as well as interesting meat and seafood plates. I'd recommend calling before just going--it's usually packed with locals and tourists. If you wanted to try it for dinner, it's also good, but it becomes a bit more formal and expensive. I certainly plan to return.

My wife and I went here with high expectations. I would say the food met our expectations, but the service was very average. Pumpkin flan is as good as everyone says, a great combination of flavor and texture. We split a rabbit entree which was absolutely delicious. Our pasta dish and artichoke side were decent. House white wine was an... More

This was possibly the worst food my family has ever had. The sausage seemed raw and was lukewarm and inedible. We also got the vegan chocolate pudding and it tasted like pure plastic (I am vegetarian and often eat vegan food so that was not the problem). Also, it was not cheap considering the quality of the food we were... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant that we had to go. The menu is only in Italian, but the server was very willing to explain it to us and Google helped as well. The restaurant has two seating's and we were lucky to get a reservation through the concierge at our hotel. The food was excellent and cooked... More

Walked in 7 years ago and so throughly enjoyed our dinner we had to go again. You can't just walk in anymore; you'll need a reservation since it's become so popular, and it seems diminished from its popularity. Nonetheless, it is well worth it. Offers exceptional food with a gourmet touch to local cuisine.

What a fantastic meal. Friendly service (be prepared to decipher the Italian menu) and great food in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. All the great comments are accurate--go to La Zucca.

We dined at La Zucca before, enjoyed the food, and wanted to return during this visit. This December the food was outstanding! We ordered several vegetarian entries and a veal dish. The vegetarian plates stood out, including pumpkin flan, artichoke hearts, roasted small onions, peppers and eggplant. The main of veal was tasty but veggies were better! There is a... More

Food great, service average if not a little unengaged and disappointed the restaurant allowed a rose seller to freely approach each table and also to request for money

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.
