Inattentive and insincere service, way over priced for very average food. the waiter over sold us on the appetizers which set us back 50 Euros and it wasn't even good. the entrees were so so...Not worth your time nor money!

Really nice romantic setting. Fish platter highly recommended (set price not in weight) tasted amazing more than enough for 2 people. Service was super friendly and the best so far in Venice. Restaurant was full, at one point people queuing to get in.

Very nice lunch and good service, price is a bit on the high side but worth it. Wife had the sea bass ravioli and I had the seafood tagliatelle.

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
