We visited Osteria Alla Ciurma everyday of our holiday. It gets very busy for the few hours that it is open and at first, it can be quite daunting trying to fit in amongst the locals. Just walk up to the counter when a space becomes available and order a drink and point to what cicchetti you fancy. Our favourites... More

We stopped in here from breakfast. The Cichetti is amazing and really well priced, especially considering the area and its popularity. The lady that served us was super friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this place enough, especially if you wanted to try Cichetti! P.s Prosecco is only €2.50 a glass!

Visited this backstreet bar today having ventured down a number of streets looking for it. Expectations (as hunger) were quite high given the reviews. Wandering in, the bar is barely big enough to swing a cat. A couple of locals chatted with one of the staff. The other stood on watching, neither acknowledged us which was a shame. We took... More

We found this place friendly and very affordable. Home made typical venetian food is accompanied by a nice selection of local wine. Staff is very friendly. Perfect for an evening bite.

Visited this place twice. Very friendly. Most were locals. It was hilarious to hear other tourist spending $80-$100 for lunch and we spent $20 for the two of us. Food was excellent. Staff very friendly. Wine was great. Many different selections. Loved it!

We tried this place because it was recommended from the Frommer's travel book...did not disappoint! We loved trying cicchetti, which is Italy's version of tapas. Everything was delicious, from the fried calamari and fried shrimp to the marinated tuna. Compliment it with a glass of full-bodied house wine or a prosecco. Great service from the staff and innovative flavors by... More

Central location, easy to find just off Rialto bridge. Visited here on Friday night just after 7pm. Place was teeming with mostly locals and some tourists inside and out. People constantly milling in and out. Barely room to stand, you are lucky to find a spot. If you wait 15 minutes you are bound to get a spot as turn... More

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.
