My husband and I happened on this Trattoria within the first two hours of arriving in Venice and we had the most excellent meal. Exactly what we were hoping to find in Italy. If we ever return to Venice it will be our first stop.

We wanted to eat where the Venetians ate and were sent to alla Madonna, recommended by the concierge of the Bauer Hotel. He also sent us a list of local dishes to try and we had a perfect meal: spaghetti ala vongole, bacalao made two ways, sardines and onions and topped it of with a delicious Torta della Nonna. Simple... More

Nice place, a bit overrated I guess, but the Brazeola is a must. The raw shrimps are amazingly fresh and tasty with a twist of lemon and oil. Staff were not that friendly, but ok. The black ink squid was good but the polenta wasn't tasty. The Millfeulle sweet was great.

Recommended before we travelled, we reserved a table (which wouldn't have been necessary, it wasn't full). We arrived a little early, and had a very grumpy response to say they weren't ready and to go away. So we went and had a nice glass of wine nearby. On arrival we ordered our food and it arrived with great haste. The... More

This is a great place to be. Busy, full of locals. Service is excellent and your meals will be delivered rapidly and to the highest quality. Great seafood, decent house wines and full of energy and life. Would certainly recommend.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge and turned out to be a wonderful choice. We had a very gregarious waiter who chose a couple of extra dishes for us to try. I honestly don't know if we were charged for them or if they were gratis, but they truly added to the experience. Some people may be turned... More

White cloth fast food. The stuff came at us pretty quickly probably because of the huge number of waiting staff. Food was ok-ish and the service was prompt - too prompt - I wasn't in any hurry at dinner. The clincher was when the waiter asked me how much tip I wanted to leave and how I wanted to pay... More

This is a very famous restaurants in Venice. Thus, my family and I went there to get to know it. Even though I spoke to the staff in italian, the waiter was extremely unpleasant, didn't explain any of the dishes and was talking with some sort of disdain. Moreover, if my in-laws hadn't insisted I would have left that crap... More

Well the food was so so not what I expected. The service was also iff at best they asked for a tip after we we payed $ 175 for 4 plates of pasta with a little seafood. Not a place I would recommend to my enemy. Please go somewhere else.

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.
