No imagination, no brightness, no colour, no freshness in this OLD SCHOOL restaurant which i´m sure is delicious for those traditional gourmets who love to sit down and be extremely well attended by costumed waiters. Good wines but dull kitchen. Extremely expensive. Only romantic for those who still mix cows with pigs.

We went for lunch so the restaurant was quiet but still great atmosphere There was a choice of 4 menus (lunch only) all at €50 each including a glass of wine. À la carte option as well of course. We took a menu each and were very happy with the food and wine. Highly recommend this place.

Food, staff, service, venue are all excellent! If you are in Venice, this is a must go to restaurant! No matter how often you go this is a place very easy to miss; better take a taxi boat directly there. Make sure you order the fried oysters and the sabayon!

Our first trip to Italy and for us it was all about the food and the wine. We researched prior to our trip and settled on da Fiore as our special eatery during our Venice stay. Our booking was made many months prior and informed them of specific allergies (gluten & garlic) As a typical tourist, we were running late... More

The food is not only creative in combination of textures, flavors and appearance, but also a delight to savor because of the surprising dishes coming forth from the chef. Fresh fish, perfectly prepared, as well as the pasta dishes, and imaginative deserts. Tables are far enough apart not to hear conversations, and the main room is quietly elegant without pretensions.... More

I hesitate to write negative reviews, but I was surprised by the discrepancy in this restaurant between the standard of service and food, and the prices charged. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere; it's very pleasant place to spend a few hours. The food is prepared very well, and the service is attentive, but this is perhaps the most over... More

This was THE restaurant to go to around 20 years ago... the couple that ran the restaurant put so much love and effort into their product and service. We took the degustation menu and were sadly disappointed with the service predominantly. Some hit and miss dishes... Did not see any Venetians in the restaurant anymore the restaurant was filled with... More

On arriving we were informed that our table had been given away as someone by that name had already arrived. This extraordinarily unlikely due to the fact our family's last name is quite unique. They acted as if it were our fault and tried to seat us in a terrible looking table claiming the main dining area would be 'too... 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.
