It's a small room - maybe 10 tables, it would feel much bigger in the warmer months when the outside tables come in to play. Food is well cooked and well presented - the menu majors on seafood, although there are some meat dishes for...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

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
