The worst place ever been over the last couple years. Food was not seasoned at all. We had only 2 appetizers (41 euros) and decided to leave. When waiter asked if we liked — we responded with sincere answer of NO and explained why. Guy...More

Dear customer, as explained we still can not figure out what they did not like, if we focus on the price we can not tell anything else, except that the mixed seafood appetizers are well priced and perhaps the choice had to fall on other...More

We went here on the recommendation of a friend. Overpriced for the quality, and our party was slightly disappointed. The staff were attentive but lacklustre food.

It started well, nice walk to get there from the Rialto bridge but once you are in this place there are no views so you could be in an Italian restaurant anywhere in the world. Old decor and they cram the tables in so not...More

A very nice small restaurant. Formidable service. Very good food. To be reached by a little bridge behind the fish market at Rialto. Very recommendable!

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
