We were in Venice over the New Year's holiday, and wanted to find a place for a nice lunch on January 1. We found this restaurant a couple of days earlier, and since we liked the location and the look of the place, we made a reservation. I know that's not the best way to judge a restaurant! But the staff were friendly, the room was lovely, and we both enjoyed our meal. I had the grilled sea-bream, which was delicate and soft as butter; my partner had the grilled calamari, which was also grilled to perfection. With a first- and second-course each and a bottle of wine, our bill came to only around 60 euros. Not bad for Venice.

We searched for the oldest restaurant in Venice and Google offered us Antica Trattoria Poste Vecie! You have to spend some time to find this small restaurant, not far away from the famous Rialto Bridge!
But, the experience was a rewarding one! Nice, well decorated rooms with fireplaces giving a pleasant atmosphere in a chill November evening. The waiter greeted us with a glass of champagne offered by the house. The vicinity to the Fish market encouraged us to taste only fish and sea food. They were excellent! For the first time in my life, I tried polenta (a national food in my country, too) with shrimps. It was great! My wife, tried as appetizer a King Crab salad, also tasting great. Both grilled eel and sea bass were quite good.
I am a fun of Sauvignon Blanc and the waiter recommended us a Collio Russiz Superiore, which was a perfect match with the fish and sea food.
it is sure, we will return to Poste Vecie restaurant!

Brilliant location (just off the grand cannel and market) but very disappointing food. The oldest trattoria in Venice was very pretty inside, but given it was next to the fish market we were very very disappointed that our fish was obviously from frozen. It could be so much better.

We had a wedding dinner here. And our time in Poste Vecie was fabulous. Antique decor. Great ambience. Excellent service. Risotto and liver were outstanding. And atmosphere of old post station transformed in the oldest restaurant in Venice was unbeatable. Restaurant is located behind Rialto Mercato with a small bridge to the restaurant. A very reliable restaurant with classic venetian cousine and reasonable prices. Absolutely not crowded and very ROMANTIC!

The personal was more than unfriendly! We had to wait for ages if we had any wish! The food in other cheap restaurants was even better than in this pretty expensive restaurant!
It was the worst dinner that we had in Venice! We haven´t finished our meal and went away! And by the way, the waiter pointedly hasn´t given us the bill for a long time, as we complained.
