Finally found this restaurant open after my fourth time trying. The food was enjoyable but overpriced. Book well ahead to secure a table and make sure it is open - it rarely is!

Visiting Venice for the day, we faced the challenge of avoiding tourist traps when having lunch, and fortunately we had an insider tip for the right place. The Antiche Carampane is a pleasant trattoria which requires good directions/map to find, but then rewards you with excellent food quality, friendly service, and a nice atmosphere. The place is not cheap, in... More

We have heard from several local people that Antiche Carampane is the best seafood restaurant in Venice and our experience confirms that. This is a small cosy place located not far from Rialto fish market. It is always packed, even for lunch, so reservation is essential. Finding location could be difficult within a network of small narrow streets, so a... More

A 20 min walk from the tourist area and a bit difficult to find. Quaint place and the menu was 90% fish. The meal was very special and some good wines to compliment. Venice is expensive But this place is a find

This is a really really great restaurant, and as other reviewers say, it is one of the best in Venice. Delicious, fresh and very tasty seafood and fish - particularly the pasta dishes - that is fairly priced (considering we're in Venice...) and accompanied by a great wine list and friendly and efficient service. We went only a couple of... More

Cosy restaurant with a nice atmosphere and authentic food. Needed to book in advance for a place on a Saturday night - there was a queue outside the door when we left! A little expensive for what it was: 90 euros for 2 mains, a bottle of cheapish wine and a dessert.

And so what is the best restaurant in Venice? Without a doubt, Antiche Carampane. It does not offer a scenic view of the Grand Canal, no Murano glass chandeliers, and not a particularly opulent environment. The restaurant is kind of hard to find and they do not serve pizza or lasagna, as noted on the sign at the front door.... More

My first meal in Venice and for my birthday dinner was at Antiche Carampane. We found it quite easily, even though it is delightfully off the beaten track, and were warmly welcomed by the staff as we entered and guided into the cosy, convivial dining room. The seafood is plentiful and varied and it'd be criminal not to explore the... 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.
