Our B&B manager recommended this place. We enjoyed our meals, the wine, and the service was wonderful. Our Italian is very limited and our server spoke a bit of English, but we hit it off with her. Toward the end of our night she brought...More

We just happened on this little restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise. The food was fresh and the service was prompt. The waiter spoke English very well and was able to explain everything to us. They offered traditional Venetian meals.

More like a bar, but we felt the food was authentic. We were recommended two restaurants by our hotel and both were exactly what we wanted. The atmosphere was relaxed, noisy and fun

Inside the Osteria Al Diavolo E l’acquasanta we were greeted by an overall pleasant atmosphere and a nice lady who showed us towards an empty table in the corner. When we sat at the wooden table we smiled looking at the paper covering the table...More

We'd had several indifferent meals in the neighbourhood of the Rialto Bridge, but we keep looking there. We stumbled upon the crowded Osteria of the Devil and the Holy Water at lunchtime on one of our last days in town. Despite not having a recommendation...More

Nice place to eat, if only for some cicchetti and a glass of wine. We enjoyed the risotto and sea food washed down with some nice cold white wine.

When this osteria was a simple cicchetti bar, it was amazing. They didn't accept plastic, you sat where you could and amazing dishes were constantly coming out of the kitchen. The local labourers ate there which kept the tourists away. Now, it seems that they've...More

We found it in Antony Bourden show, and came here to eat after a long walk. Risotto with fish is just perfect, and nothing better you can wish. also Good home vine, delicious pasta!

Seppia pasta was salty. Bigoli in salsa was ok. Grilled shrimps were delicious. Red house wine was good. We might go back. Don't know why TripAdvisor listed two locations. The mapping apps could not find the other location.

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
