We stopped for cappuccini first thing in the morning, or for macchiato if a bit later, or espresso, or for hot chocolate in the bitter December cold, and it was always wonderful! Cornetti were always fresh and delicious, and pastry fantastic. We enjoyed the apple-honey and the almond pastry, but still talk about the marzapane cake and how silly of... More

I been the best tiramissu store in Venezia and the staff introduced 'Pasticceria Rizzardini. Before I leave Venice, I just stop by. But OLD lady served with horrible attitude and the sweets they sell taste really bad. Never go there!!! #venice #terrible #badservice #rudepeople #tastybad #tastyterrible

I stopped in, after eating the street food from Acqua & Mais, for a little dessert, & enjoyed a piece of the dense almond cake (mandorla), but if you are a pastry shop fan, it is not one of the more interesting ones.

We stayed a few doors down from this place, and after a morning of terrible jet lagged effected sleep, we went to this pasticceria and got two cappuccinos and a pastry. The pastry was warm and fantastic. We only got one to split, but the next day we got two! Definitely a go to place for your trip to venice.

We stopped in here for a casanova and some cappuccino. Both were exceptional. Prices were good, and service was fast and friendly too.

Family-run bakery on a tiny back street with an incredible array of homemade cakes and pastries. Pop in for a coffee and watch the locals stop by for their espressos too!

Walked past this little cafe/pasticceria a couple of time before going in which was a shame. Once inside I was in cake heaven, I could have one of everything, seriously. Lovely old style to shop and plenty to choose from. Very friendly staff. Next time I'm in Venice this will be my first stop and I will not be walking... More

Stopped here on the advice of our walking tour guide. It's supposed to be one of the oldest continually-running pasticcerias in the city, dating back to 1742. Has a little counter space to get a coffee and a pastry. Service was friendly and the pastry was really good! I recommend the 'Il Doge'. Much better than your average cafe or... More

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.
