This little place just around the corner from Rialto Bridge is a world away from the hustle and bustle of tourists and the cheap souvenir shops that crowd the main areas of Venice. Walk inside and you are in a different world. Local people stopping in for a quick snack on the delicious cicchetti.. Some tourists who like us have... More

I've sampled a lot of cicchetti in Venice and this tiny bar's offerings are really top notch. Even though everything is good, the real ticket is the array of smoked and marinated fish,especially the marinated tuna, smoked swordfish.and smoked tuna. Good selection of wine. Everything offered at very reasonable prices. The bar is located just off the Rialto market. Worth... More

This is a lovely little bolt-hole in one of the main tourist strips in Venice, surrounded by boutiques and Trattorias with "menus turistico". However, it serves up great cicchetti - Venetian-style tapas dishes - and drinks at ridiculously reasonable prices. In a city where it feels next to impossible to find genuine local establishments, this place offers an example of... More

We had in mind that it would be a sit down dinner but in reality it was just VERY good bar food. Fried and marinated calamari was very good.

Absolutely a fantastic food; great staff, friendly and efficient. The crostino di bacalà, the polpette di carne and di tono, the bacalà frito, crostino di salmone and others are fantastic. Prices very reasonable. Highly recommended to go. Marco is friendly and helpful and the best, he speaks Portuguese also.

It might be difficult to spot or find, but it's worth the hunt. Small, cozy atmosphere that does not feel like an overpriced tourist trap. Locals populate the bar/restaurant (mostly male seniors sipping wine and talking animatedly). Food is excellent, and there are many options to choose from, everything is served in small snack-like small portions so it's a great... More

Once again I have trusted TripAdvisor and have been disappointed. Really struggled to find this place as there is no sign outside and it's down an alleyway, almost gave up looking when I finally stumbled across it. The chef had a friend come in behind me whom he promptly served first and didn't even acknowledge me while he chatted to... 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.
