Lovely restaurant easily booked in The Fork. Tourist friendly but authentic Venetian foods as other local places which were recommended to me. The terrace sitting is very spacious on a quite street next to a church. Though sitting outdoor we were not bothered by noises...or tourists passing by at all. The foods are GREATTTTTT. Caprese and lobster linguini were done to perfection. The service is impeccable, super friendly, fast and efficient. Highly recommend this placeMore

I have written a review before but I would like to write again in response to the "racist" comment, which is NOT true! Me and my husband are both Asian. We went to the restaurant during lunch time without reservation. The waiter was warm and...friendly; He treated us with great respect, and placed us at a table outside. The food was so good that we made a reservation to come back for dinner. This time I requested to sit inside. We were placed inside at the window, so I was able to look at the customers outside. There were Asians, Caucasians and locals。 Pic 1, 2and 3: Lunch outside; We made friends with a Caucasian couple who also sit outside. Pic 4: dinner inside; you can see that there was a Caucasian family behind us.More

Staff was very courteous. The food was great, I had the Tagliolini al ragú d'anatra - the pasta was perfectly al dente and the duck ragú was light and perfectly seasoned. It was a bit pricey but on the other hand you are in venice....Five StarsMore

My husband was very satisfied with his scampi spaghetti with food temperature remaining hot to the last bit. I had tuna fillet with sesame and pistachio crust. Delicious! Our dinner was more enjoyable with wonderful service from gorgeous and fun Nico. Nico, no wonder that...you are famous on trip advisor reviews 🙂More

This was by far our favorite meal in Venice. Nico was a fabulous server and made our visit a fun and enjoyable one. The food was all fantastic, on top of the wonderful service. I especially enjoyed the spicy scampi, and my husband loved his...crusted tuna. The caprese and tiramisu were also delicious. We really enjoyed our evening, and also loved sitting outside chatting with the other patrons while our daughter played.More

Dropped on this restaurant as we left the vaparetto. It was early evening and the place was empty but looked inviting and the music was really nice. Nico welcomed us in perfect English and recommended two pasta dishes that were excellent. Wine was beautifully chilled....On the expensive side but certainly worth it. After all it is Venice!More

We've been here in June 7th for dinner with my family. We were very satisfied with the food and the service, it's not expensive as other places and it's a very welcoming place. Would absolutely recommend it.

I asked for recommendations for a really good restaurant that isnt touristy, and was send to Ristorante San Silvestro. It was SUCH a great experience. The people were lovely, I sat outside with a great view, and the food was out of this world. I...ordered beef carpaccio with arugula and pasta with duck ragu. Both SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS. I will absolutely go back there. Highly recommend this place!!!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

Sorry I just saw this question. I hope it’s not too late. We had a party of four and just walked in. They were able to seat us. It probably depends on the day and time.
