We stopped here around 6pm for a snack and glass of wine. We decided to order the cheese platter and it was delicious. The honey adds a nice touch! We sat out on the patio and had a nice view of the water. Make sure...More

Extremely rude waiters. It was our first night in Venice and this restaurant completely spoiled our first experience. It’s a common tourist trap and hotels should stop recommending it. Don’t believe me? Then try it for yourself. All negative reviews about this place are true....More

Without a doubt the best meal I had in Venice and one of the best meals I've had across all of Italy. The outdoor seating is nice by the canal in the daytime but I visited for dinner and the upstairs is an enchanting dining...More

We prefer to have finger food and local wines at Bancogiro and their selection of wine wines by the glass are excellent and the finger food is hourly made, fresh and good ingredients.

We first dined at Bancogiro around five years ago and had a very memorable dinner. So, on our return visit to Venice, this is one of the few restaurants that we wanted to try again. The food and service at Bancogiro are still outstanding. The...More

If you’ve heard of Spanish tapas, this is the Venetian version. They are served in typical ‘bacari’ bars or ‘osteries’. I read a really handy tip on trip advisor, don’t eat in restaurants that have pictures of food outside! You need to go to 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
