This old restaurant is located in the Rialto area. I found myself very well, I ate a freshly fried fish and excellent and tasty spaghetti with seafood. The price is adequate, indeed I would call it an economic establishment. Clearly, both the environment and the...More

This is a very interesting old place, but the food was a disappointment. Pasta isn't home made and their bigoli (a traditional venetian dish) were just big spaghetti. The fritto misto (mixed fried seafood) was ok. Service was friendly. I suggest you go there for...More

We came to Venice for a day trip and our walking tour guide recommended this restaurant. We certainly enjoyed the €1 glasses of wine, and the lady said that her seafood pasta dish was very tasty. I had the pasta with anchovies and onion. Apparently...More

My daughter and I had lunch here and it was delicious! Very reasonably priced and good food. They had gluten free options for my daughter. Servers spoke English and were helpful in assisting us with our food choice.

Great place for seafood and genuine Venetian cicchetti (€1 apiece). Local vine €2 per class, white was surprisingly good for the price.

Stopped in here actually thinking it was another restaurant we had heard about. The waiter at the front was very attentive, suggesting a local wine to start that was very tasty. We had an appetizer of fresh fish that was very nice. I ordered the...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
