In case you're turn away at a popular restaurant called Antiche Carampane, do not be disappointed as there is another gem along the canal. Though small and cozy, the attention to customers is top notch and the food is equally good. Seated within minutes without...More

After having been to a rather pretentious restaurant the previous night, we were craving som authentic Venetian food at a more reasonable price. So we tried our luck at this end of town which, to be honest is a bit insalubrious. However, we walked in...More

Booked by phone (a must as this place is so small) and arrived a bit early which wasn't a problem. We ordered the fried fish platter for 2 and the risotto for 2. Both were delicious and well cooked. We didn't stay for dessert as...More

This restaurant was tucked away in a side street and we ate outside in the cute little courtyard. Prices were reasonable for Venice and the food was not bad.

We had the mussels and clams to start, seafood risotto for our mains and pana cotta for dessert. All were of the highest standard. Service was good as well. Lovely little restaurant off the beaten track in Venice.

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
