We visited this restaurant on the advice that it served genuine Venetian food. The sea bream was tasty and well cooked, and the salt-cod was an interesting new experience for me. But we found it was little expensive for what it was, and did not...More

This restaurant is really special! It is small and cozy with only 5 or 6 tables. The Signora welcomes each guest with open arms and you are immediately at home in a small intimate dining room. The menu is interesting and includes all of the...More

Welcomed warmly by La Signora owner who also waited at table and gave wise advice about wine and menu - wonderful tasty fish soup which was a meal in itself - a haven from the busy streets and so authentic.

On our family's first time to Venice, the concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant. With 3 kids in tow, we were looking for restaurants that weren't the typical tourist traps, but also not the smokey-bar tapas food that is often found in Venice. This...More

The restaurant is located in an apartment that was converted to a restaurant. Very pleasant place, the owner is also a waitress, typical Italian food, very generous portions and reasonable price.

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
