We had a great meal here! It’s not fancy at all, but the food was delicious and reasonably priced. It was busy and I loved the atmosphere as well. The pasta dishes were really tasty and I am sure it was by accident but there...More

Great little restaurant, 2 minutes from Rialto Bridge, but not the typical tourist trap. Family owned and operated. They treat you like family. Great wine list. Reasonable prices.

We just happened on this little restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise. The food was fresh and the service was prompt. The waiter spoke English very well and was able to explain everything to us. They offered traditional Venetian meals.

More like a bar, but we felt the food was authentic. We were recommended two restaurants by our hotel and both were exactly what we wanted. The atmosphere was relaxed, noisy and fun

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
