Everybody has their own favorite places to dine when they travel. For me, whenever in Venice, I enjoy the Trattoria alla Madonna (The Madonna) located near the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. It's worth the 10 minute walk from St. Mark's Square or your...More

Frankly sad to see this place having become an average eatery for easy-going tourists. It used to be a place where meals were always a pleasure, it has become a forgettable restaurant. Just to quote an example, we had both spaghetti alle vongole and risotto...More

This restaurant is near the Rialto bridge, so you can't expect a "locals only" atmosphere. However, our experience was very nice. The restaurant was packed at 9:00pm with international tourists and Italians. We had seafood, pasta and wine. Everything was tasty and of good quality....More

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
