We came upon this place while aimlessly wandering the alleys of Venice our first night. I had the spaghetti von golem and my wife had a rather large pizza, Both were tasty, as was the house wine. Service was prompt, if a little perfunctory. Would consider a second visit here.

The restaurant is located on a very nice little square near a channel. We had dinner on the terace. The staff was preparing and arranging the electricity wires near us and they did not even raised their eyes on us. I think, others than the greeting they did not say a word to us. No reason to choose this restaurant.

We were only in Venice for 3 nights and came here twice. On our first night we called in for (very reasonably priced, freshly made and delicious) pizzas as we were tired, it was close to the hotel and getting late. We chose to return on the final night of our trip and I'm glad we did - I can... More

We were on a trip to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary, and found this restaurant one day. We decided to try it in the evening and were very impressed.

We took the adventure and found this jewel tucked away in Venice. We order 4 different dishes from pasta, salmon ravioli, scampi and fresh red snapper special... fabulous! Wine and dessert topped off a good meal. Resonably priced and good wine selection 🍷

We chose his restaurant based on reviews as it was near our Air B&B. We sat outside and it was lovely. We shared the seafod plater to start, which was plenty for three and had the nicest octopus I've ever had. For mains we had the lamb, a pizza and the fish soup. All three were very nice and the...

My husband and I went here for dinner on our last night in Venice. My husband asked the server if he would recommend the sea bass ($19) or ravioli ($15) he said we should share both dishes and we said ok. The food was nice but when we received our bill the ravioli was $15 and the fish was $50!... More

We had just an ok meal at Taverna da Baffo with our family of four. After arriving with a reservation and quickly sat at a table near the front of the restaurant we were then ignored for quite a long time. It took probably 10-15 minutes to be asked if we would like drinks. Then that took quite a while... More

The service was fantastic the quality and serving size of the food outstanding. I ordered the seafood soup which was good but you had to work for every mouthful as it was mostly served in shells and there was some sandy bits and bones. But the flavour was delicious. If I went again I would avoid the soup for this... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood 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 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 Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
