Great atmosphere with plenty of locals/Italians in attendance which is always a good sign. Plenty of food choice. Service was good. Try the crab special.

This place came recommended but we can't figure out why. To start with it, definitely felt like they segregated Italians to tourists in separate sides of the restaurant, and the food came too quickly for a relaxing meal. I ordered the seafood mixed plate which...More

This trattoria was suggested by the concierge of our hotel. Despite the nice location, right on Rialto's district, we didn't enjoy the food (bit too shalby) nor the service...waiters were running like headless chicken without really paying attention to guests'needs.

Venice is not one of those places you come for the great good, there is clearly a lack of the good restaurants. This trattoria is worth a visit.

Seafood risotto amuse bouche was very good. Grilled sea bass took time but was smoky and excellent. Green salad was fresh and good. Fried mixed seafood was adequate. The gnocchi were light and tasty. Overall ok, but moderately expensive.

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

It's open on Monday but please note that on Mondays you won't find fresh fish or seafood anywhere in Venice
Afraid too many reviewers are deluded. One thinks he's in Florence and another thinks this osteria is a "fine dining" establishment. Get a grip guys!
