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.

Great location and good food. Used to go every year, but poor experience last time (September 2015) when we were charged for 2 bottles of wine....

On a row of about 4 eating places in a very good setting with views of the Grand Canal. We chose here as we wanted to try 2 fish dishes they were advertising. Both were very good with the fish cooked to perfection. We did think the accompanying vegetables could have had a bit more flavor.. We had a bottle... More

Very poor experience - food was average and the service was appalling. Despite being in the heart of a tourist district, the waiters were poorly trained on communication. They refused to allow my little child to eat his pizza slice here even though they were unable to accommodate our request to make something that he could eat. They had to... More

Reasonably priced wine. Food is overpriced and ehh. Grab a bottle and a cheese plate and relax with a nice view of the canal away from some major touristy areas.

Has a really authentic feel...off the very tired tourist path and in a nice little corner of Venice with views of the Grand Canal and many of the Gondoleirs. The menu is very special and the wine offerings are lovely. We had the gnocchi with rabbit and the black squid ink pasta with cuttlefish ragu. What's not to love? You're... More

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.
