The food was nice enough but the pricing is deceptive, which makes the entire place untrustworthy and the experience disappointing. We had dinner for 4 - some antipasti, primi and dolci, including wine and coffee. The food was mostly good (avoid the prawns with speck!)...More

Not far from the Rialto Bridge we found this place. They offer a tourist menu - alongside a la carte offerings - of 3 courses. We chose this twice and enjoyed it both times. With a bottle of wine, the bill was around 40 euros....More

I have always believed that, if the restaurateurs of Venice don't trap you with the food prices, they will get you with the drinks/service charge/ cover charge, and so it turned out at this place. We ate here twice, once for a late lunch and...More

We're in Venice as part of a 4 month European holiday and were looking for a simple, reasonably inexpensive meal. We checked out the "featured" page on the street front menu and noted pasta dishes that looked good at 10 and 8 Euros so proceeded...More

We came here due to the positive reviews and had a fantastic experience with the delicious food, the friendly and helpful staff and the cozy setting in a small Calle off the Grand Canal. Note: When we arrived, my teenagers spotted some rather ordinary-looking dishes...More

. . . something was wrong. The setting is very charming and romantic. The food was quite good. But something was clearly bothering the staff. They were literally running to and from the kitchen. Their attitude was sour to surly. It really ruined the dining...More

We booked our dinner here based on positive reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and tasted like mama cooked it herself. The sevice was friendly, although we felt a bit rushed. It is a cosy, clean spot just across 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
neighbourhood. 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
