We visited this restaurant after wondering away from the main parade of similar restaurants on the grand canal and wasn't disappointed. There are only a handful of tables and we sat outside in the alleyway adjacent to the restaurant. The menu was handwritten in Italian...More

A delightful, tiny little bar with charming staff. While the must-try is the sweet wine (like a Vin Santo) with the little Venetian cookies for dipping, the hidden gem is the house-made tiramisu!

Lovely little gem in the back streets of Venice. Very fresh, tasty Chicchetti at a very reasonable price. Well worth a visit if you're exploring the city and need a quick pit stop!

I was actually trying to help my daughter find a public WC, when we stumbled upon this great little hideaway in a side alleyway. When I spotted it, I told her that she could use the toilet while I have a beer! Great decision! I...More

This is a quiet little bar/restaurant tucked in just behind the Rialto. We found this little gem 4 years ago by accident. It is now on our must go to list of restaurants.

Along with the best name for a bar, "the Sacred and Profane" can lay claim to some of the tastiest cicchetti and regional wines and spirits to be found in Venice. And "found" is the key word, because this inconspicuous little joint is off 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
