Having eaten in different restaurants each day of our stay and found virtually the same limited choices in all them - mainly pizza or pasta - we tried La Zucca after reading excellent reviews - particularly as one of us was vegetarian and gluten free....More

The service was friendly but discreet. Food varied and delicious. I loved the fennel with olives and the artichokes. The menu had the date on it so you know everything served is fresh and depends on availability. Our friends enjoyed their pork. If only there...More

Visited this Osteria on our last night in Venice. The restaurant is small - a quick count en route to our table suggests that they are able to accommodate approximately 35 diners at one sitting. Booking in advance is therefore highly recommended (even on a...More

La Zucca was the best restaurant we found in Venice (still within a reasonable budget). It's a tiny place with a lovely atmosphere and a very knowledgeable wine waiter. The stand out dishes are the butternut squash flan and zucchini lasagne, such incredible flavours and...More

We went as a group of six friends and we had all kinds of demands: vegan, vegetarian, low fat... everyone was very satisfied! Deserts were amazing, too! Prices are very good compared with other restaurants in the same class. The pumpkin caramel flan was divine!

Booked this place on the basis that they did veggie options, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant also does meat and fish options as well. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful.

A menu with real choices, sufficiently long but not too long. A refreshing place to visit - though booking is necessary for an evening meal. I don't know about lunch. We went as a family of four - and everyone left content with a smile...More

This was the best meal we had in 10 days in Venice. It was not the cheapest but had a fantastic meal for two for approx £100. It is popular and we could not get in the first time we tried so booking is essential.

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

They take credit cards in general. I believe Visa is one of them.

yes they do and in response to the above, of course the menu is in Italian (Venice is in Italy) but they give you a translation card and more importantly the waiter speaks good English and can give you recommendations.

You should be able to view these online. Vegetarian (unsure about strictly vegan) options plentiful. I'm one and LOVED the menu! I specifically remember the artichoke dish. Delicious. Great restaurant.
