Good food, if sharing a dish happy to split it in the kitchen into portions. Quiet location just off the grand canal. If you visit, try the linguine with prawns and pesto was very tasty. Be aware of the 12% service charge added automatically!

We ate here twice, and what we loved most of all was that it was a haven away from the busy lane ways. We were relaxed, taken care of considerately but not over the top. Lovely, well priced food & the best house red. Our kids loved it too. Chefs were very sweet & friendly.

This is a fair restaurant if you want to eat in the main area of the square but they have a very nice lasagna. In most cases no need for reservations

The food is average at best and wine was overpriced. Noodles in spaghetti bolognese were undercooked, and chicken and fries entree was nothing special. It is close to the Rialto, so is an easy location for tourists to stumble upon, but you can do better.

Main dishes were slightly below average quality and the tiramisu was the worst we have ever ordered in a restaurant (which is quite a statement from an American). You could do much better. As a side note, the house wine seemed very overpriced.

If you are looking for a family run restaurant service quality food in a very touristy area, then come here! Near Rialto Bridge in a quiet alley looking across at a boarded up building but seating was outside in a nice area separated from the alley by plants. The owner put together an antipasto plate of local Italian meats and... More

We had touristic menu to share as the portion was large enough for 2 people. Price was reasonable and atmosphere was good. We had pasta in bolognese style, it's not the best as I have eaten much better version in Rome. The fried fish with fries were delicious.

You're near Rialto bridge, not in the canal and no breeze or nice view, plastic flowers on pots outside: Not the most appealing. Our concierge recommended it, however, it was a miss for me. The food was decent, but I'm sure there's plenty of prettier spaces with food just as good. Staff was nice though.

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.
