We booked Da Fiore months in advance of our Christmas Eve dinner. Our expectations were high, but even with low expectations we would have been disappointed. We recognize that working Christmas Eve isn't ideal, but the staff were remarkably unpleasant. The wine and food are unreasonably overpriced, and the atmosphere is drab. We are big fans of traditional/"old school" restaurants,... More

Recommended by a friend, we went here on our first night in Venice and were not disappointed. The service and food is superb. We shared some courses and had wine by the glass to match the food. The food was prepared and presented well including baked salmon in fennel, tempura baked oysters (beautiful) and a beef risotto. We would strongly... More

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

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.
