We had a really nice dinner here. Whilst the good wasn't cheap then you get what you pay for. It is, as others have stated, a hidden gem. If you didnt have a firm idea where it was you would only ever find this place be sheer accident. The service was excellent, very tasty wine and beautifully presented food. I... More

Hidden away in the backstreets we found this place, luckily we booked as it only caters for a small crowd and the place was full. We had the pumpkin gnocchi with scampi and zucchini flowers and the dish was sensational with great base flavour of shellfish. The Tuscan lamb grill was simple yet delicious with the lamb cooked well with... More

My husband and I got lost in our way to find this spot. Arrived and didn't have a reservation, but we squeezed in after waiting an hour. Started off with the vermicelli in cuttlefish ink the the tuna. Delicious fresh food and cozy romantic atmosphere.

This was our second visit to Larisa and Vergilio's wonderful restaurant. Despite being late (my fault) Larisa got us sorted quickly but be aware, this restaurant has limited seating and is very popular so we were lucky (don't get lost on the way!). The characteristic is fresh produce, a deceptively simple menu, beautifully cooked and complemented by a good wine... More

This is my first review because the food was so amazingly good we actually offered to take the chef with us to Dubai! You have to try this restaurant! It's mouthwatering.

Visited this Osteria on our first night in Venice, it was quite close to the flat we rented. Didn't have a reservation, but we showed up right at 18:30 opening and were able to get a table for 2, though parties arriving later without a reservation were turned away. Setting was cozy, food was delicious, especially the Crudi (raw fish... More

The food was excellent and the service was the best we've experienced in Venice so far. We'll definitely come back to try out more of the dishes!

We were staying in Venice for a week and did some research on a local restaurant near our apartment. What a find this was. (Note: not easy to actually find as its tucked away down a small lane) Perfect example of a family run Osteria. I had the fish platter selection and it was superb. Highly recommend that if you...

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.
