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

This tiny bakery fit six people on a rainy day. I ordered an eclair and a limoncello to go. Both were outstanding! Authentic treats and goods here. You have to try it!

I really wanted to try something from a local shop that isn't a gelato. I had a marzipan cupcake and it was delicious. Not a tourist rip off, loved it ❤️🇮🇹😊

Took my partner here for a cake on his birthday. The pasticceria is tiny, but so full of life and history. The coffee was excellent, the hot chocolate was to die for, and the cakes were sent from the heavens. I definitely recommend the tiramisu! Best part was that my partner lost his wallet but only realised after we had... More

We just happened to bump into this place as it was very close to our hotel. My husband needed his early morning cup of coffee so we went to this place. My my, were we surprised! Amazing amazing coffee. In fact the best we've had anywhere in Italy and perfectly baked corneto's. The owner and another lady are really friendly... 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.
