This was our last night in Venice and we wanted something quite impossible yet simple: great food, good price, nice view and awesome service. Did we find it? You bet! At this Osteria we managed to stay more time, drink more, eat more and let the magic of Venice work on us. If I'm ever back to Venice I will... More

The concierge recommended this place on our first evening in Venice. It was beautiful outside and they has great outdoor seating. Our meals were both good... I ordered their simple pasta with tomato and basil sauce while my husband had cuttlefish steamed in a bag with vegetables. We were both very pleased with our meals. Their house white wine was...

Our guide while in Croatia recommended this restaurant. It's on the Grand Canal near Pte. Rialto. A perfect location. The food was expertly prepared, the service just right, and about as good as it gets. The Foie Gras, cheese appetizer, and beef were all superb.

We go there every day for an aperol spritz! The service is excellent, the food is great if you like seafood and they serve the best spritz in town! An amazing place with amazing views! Also the area is not packed with tourists! Tottaly worth a visit!

We stopped at this traditional cichetti bar for a light, late morning snack. We both had charcuterie on bread, although others available included salt cod, sardines, and other traditional Italian snacks. I'm not sure if all cichetti bars follow the same format, but at Bancogiro customers order at a "take-out" window and eat standing up outside. Interesting and tasty food.

Right by the Rialto bridge and markets this was a lovely place to have lunch. Staff were attentive and the food not so expensive, considering you're in Venice

Very unfriendly staff, we sat on a table and had to move because at 17:45 we did not want to eat dinner. They gave us the menu and left us, so we had to leave. Never come back again.

During our stay in Venice we've really struggled to find a nice restaurant without an extortionately priced menu. So it was a welcome surprise to stumble across this place to enjoy an evening meal without feeling like we're being taken advantage of. Nice food and service with a beautiful river setting. Would definitely go back.

Our waiter could not have been more inhospitable and intolerant. He was rude and only visited our table once. Having said that, the food was excellent and the location terrific.

We were enjoying a drink and the view of the Grand Canal so much, we stayed to have dinner. It was excellent and the service was attentive without being intrusive.

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.
