Found this place on our first night walking around Venice. Having had a drink by the canal wanted to try something a bit more authentic. The outside area was pretty full and to be honest we were attracted by the sign showing a glass of...More

Focusing on finding and trying local dishes, and this being one of the first dinners we sat down for on our trip to Venice, Antica Osteria Ruga Rialto provided exactly what we were looking for. Our server handled our lack of Italian well (as much...More

This is a favorite place of mine to stop for a great glass of wine and wonderful people watching. The perfect location brings in both locals and tourists, college students and old-timers. The owner Giorgio treats everyone like a long lost friend.

We came across this place looking for another one. The food is really venician, testy and well made every dish that we ordered. I recommend this place to anyone who wanna experience a simple and original restaurant in Venice without being 'treated as tourists'.

Small and crowded but filled with regulars, it provides almost a family atmosphere. Solid bar food and good drinks.

Easily missed as the entrance is not in your face. Looks small from the outside but when you enter, it has few different rooms. The food was simple, typically Italian but delicious. We had local sardine and onion spaghetti, maybe it doesn't sound appealing but...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
