If you don't mind eating industrial food, that they tried to turn into truly Italian, you may enjoy this place. It is not a cosy gastronomical place, it is a factory to squeeze money from the tourists. Speedy impersonal service, actually no service, white wine...More

One of the best fish restaurante in Venice. It was my number one restaurant during my three months stay in Venice. If you are a sea-fruit lover, you should definitely try this place. Sea-fruit starters both cold and hot are amazing. Cappelunghe is a must....More

Tried to charge us the tip on top of already service included bill. Spoils all the perception of relatively good fairly priced lunch. The quality of ingredients was not the finest but I guess you can tolerate it in this set up.

Everybody has their own favorite places to dine when they travel. For me, whenever in Venice, I enjoy the Trattoria alla Madonna (The Madonna) located near the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. It's worth the 10 minute walk from St. Mark's Square or your...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
