The food here was fantastic, as were the portions - especially the fried fish with vegetables. The dessert too was divine. They are apparently specialists in pizzas, which the pages offering various alternatives is testament to. My brother - who adores pizza - also raved about the one he ate. The service was friendly and efficient. I can see why... More

A friend recommended we ate here. Soft-shell crab is in season and it was fabulous. The grilled fish was really well cooked and the fish soup was excellent. The Valrhona chocolate cake for dessert was rich and a great end to the meal. The service was attentive and efficient (thank you Gianluca). One of the best meals that I have... More

To begin, service was nice, even if it was quite long. But we got a bad surprise with the appetizer: the lamb hamburger, which is just made of 2 meat balls...for 14 euros I clearly expected something else. then we ordered a seafood risotto but that was not tasty at all. In their defense pizzas looked great but sadly we... More

We ate pasta yesterday evening. Taste was great. The staff was really friendly. Usually in Venice restaurants take 10 to 12 Percent service charge, not so in Muro Frari. Next time again.

We came here later than our friends. Paid off because we had the chance to try one slice from each pizza our friends had ordered. All of them were delicious. Ambience was very good.

Located on Rio Tera Dei Frari in Santa Croce is this little gem of a restaurant. It has tables outside on the street and a nice modern room inside. We had a seafood risotto for 2 and a carafe of house wine. Both were wonderful! Highly recommended!

This place was hopping on a Sunday night. Just a minute from our rental apartment it was full when we got there but were accommodating so we all ordered some beer to drink while waiting on the Bridge close by. Everyone liked their meal, I had a nice duck gnocchi dish. Not mind blowing but very pleasant and the staff... More

First night in Venice and recommended this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, John Luca our wait or was informative, friendly and attentive. The pizzas were huge and generously laden and hubby had best steak he's ever eaten. It was so good we've booked again tonight as the seafood linguini on the next table smelt so divine and I'm determined... More

We did not have much luck with our meals in Venice during the two days we were there. Breakfast was taken at the hotel, and the one evening meal we took left something to be desired. This place offered the best meal we enjoyed during our two day stay. It is modern, well appointed, and patronized by locals (or, at... 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.
