This was our last meal of our holiday in Venice and the best food and service. Located in a small back street and could be easily overlooked but exceptional food, wine and ambience.

You can arrive by boat to start the romantic evening. The food/service was top notch! But the key is to call several months in advance for the signature table! The table extends out onto the canal and set for two! I will never visit Venice and not eat at Da Fiore!! Sam Maguire

I came here 20 years ago and had one of the best experiences for dining. This visit was an absolute disappointment. The service was as if they utterly don't care. They run around the Americans thinking they have the cash only to forget that there are other diners in the restaurant. I felt I was in an Italian restaurant in... More

The squid in ink was a masterpiece. The combination of different tastes resulted in a delightful mixture of simultaneous different taste sensations. Pleasantly confusing both the palate & the mind. Like enjoying multiple symphonies at the same time. I will find it very difficult to eat squid in ink ever again. Having said this, the vegetarian fare was a disappointment.... More

We chose the osteria based on the short menu-du-jour they provided - always a good sign in Venice when the place has a short list changing day to day. The yellow fin tuna was cook perfectly and the tiramisu was a dream of lightness and taste.

We were seated on the one table for two on the balcony over the canal which was lovely. The service was very good, the setting was great but the food was just well prepared not vey interesting cuisine. I felt it was too expensive for what we received

This is generally considered one of the finest restaurants in Venice. It is very expensive but if you have the money then it is worth it. Just go and relax and forget the prices. It is an old fashioned extremely elegant kind of place. I have been several times--with my wife, or with family group (seven people) and with friends.... More

We visited DaFiore 2 years ago and the evening was a disaster. The Vaparetto's went on strike the day of our reservation, and although the walk was longer than I wanted to make for dinner, we had no choice and the rain just came pouring down too. So I was in no mood to eat when we got there hot... More

We managed to get a table at this restaurant through the hotel. My husband had read reviews and found this restaurant in the Michelin guide, so we want to go there. The room is relatively plain in terms of decoration and the chairs too, however the food and the service is excellent. We had an amuse bouche that gave us... More

Best dish I had in Venice by far - the soft shelled crab. Our boat driver told us about the crab being a specialty of the area, especially this time of year, and when I saw it on the menu, I was very excited! The meal overall was expensive, but delicious. The soft shelled crab was the highlight by far.

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.
