Had a lovely meal here. Staff were very friendly and setting was very nice. The mixed seafood main for two was superb. Fairly hard to find but well worth it and very good value.

Delightful small restaurant on a quiet side street run by a couple (he the chef, she the server). Traditional Italian menu with some surprising twists. We have the house wine (both red and white), which was a step up from the typical generic house offering....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
