A bustling eating experience not for those wanting an intimate dining out experience but one that remains in the 1950's tradition with close knit tables and fine waiters sporting white jackets. We had vegetables mixed seafood black squid and liver and onions with a nice bottle of wine. We felt a tad hurried rather than relaxed but the food was... More

They have translate menus. We asked for french and we got the added bonus of having a french speaking waiter! The food was delicious. Their specialty is spaghetti with squid ink. It was very good! Also had the gnocchi with ragù sauce and the veal with lemon. Service is impeccable, the restaurant is close to everything yet in a small... More

First nights dinner in Venice. A great restaurant full of locals. I would definitely recommend booking this restaurant as we arrived early for our reservation and there was a queue out of the door. I went to the front enquired whether we could be seated early and we were immediately found a table. We were provided with a menu in... More

This trattoria was recommended to us by the Hotel Bella Venezia where we were staying. We checked out other reviews on this site. We were told by the restaurant we didn't need to book and so we just turned up. There was no problem and we were seated immediately. The staff were very friendly, helpful and natural. They gave us...

This is definitely a place to go if you visit Venice. It is very well located and away from the restaurants full of tourists. Their selection of seafood and fish is excellent and the service is fast as they have a lot of waiters. Go with the mind that it is a typical venetian restaurant for a typical experience!!

A classical trattoria with good uncomplicated cuisine. Personally I favour a granzeola to start and then some squid Venice style but just ask which fish they recommend

This place is same as a canteen. The food is not fresh, it is cooked time before. I didnt enjoy any plate and we ordered a lot of dishes. I could cook them 100time better at home.

After lots of discussion with my boyfriend, we've decided to have dinner here since this restaurant is quite popular amongst Japanese tourists somehow(it doesn't mean the restaurant is great, but for me as Japanese it seems the foods should match with my taste sense at least), and I read many good comments both on foods especially seafoods and the service....

We read the reviews (including one dated Jan 14) but when we went, this restaurant is closed for the month FYI, so call before you make the trek

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.
