Ate here twice for lunch. Very relaxed on the edges of the Grand Canal, so great for people watching. Helpful fun staff and we very much enjoyed the food and wine. It is busy but we weren’t rushed out. Will definitely come back next time...More

Had chichetti and drinks at this place on a nice afternoon. The snacks we ordered were all stale, made with old bread, and some of the dishes (stuffed zucchini flowers and bacalao) tasted like they had been prepared days ago. Ordered brand name vodka, but...More

After sailing the Grand Canal on the Vaporetto and crossing the Rialto bridge we noticed the cocktails that we had seen in other Italian cities. So we asked and discovered this amazing aperitif "Shpritz" EUR5 (Aperol, Prosecco, Club Soda, ice, olive or slice of orange)....More

Visiting Venice for the Biannale, stopped for drinks with a friend. Slow service, overpriced and low quality appetizers. Venice is known for it's cichetti (snacks) and these weren't fresh and also over priced. While it is a great location, service and quality are very poor.

This restaurant is fabulous. We had mixed fish tapas as a starter which 3 of us shared. The special was sea bass which was dressed at the table. Fab service and amazing food. Can't fault it.

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
