we had just arrived and said we would stop at the first cafe we found - which was this place. It was excellent ! i had seafood pasta and it was one of the most delicious meals i have had. my only complaint is the...portion size - i needed more. Do not be suprised at how delicately flavored this dish was. Lots of locals eating in here too. Really enjoye d- thank you !More

Found thus place walking the streets of Venice. Only has about 20 seats, but the experience was great! Caprese salad and a pizza for lunch and was wonderful.

This was the first restaurant we ate at in Venice, Italy and it was right down the street from where we were staying. The owners were very friendly and spoke English which was nice since we had just flown in from Paris. The food was...amazing and well priced!! My cousin ordered the Gnocchi al Bolognese, my wife a Calzone and I had the Penne al Bolognese. Bonus, €2,50 Prosecco!! We will definitely be back for future meals.More

I was in Venice on a budget and not willing to spend a small fortune on a meal, hence I looked quite a lot for a place where I could have a decent dinner at a reasonable price. Al Cefetier is just that. It's a...very small - and unsophisticated - restaurant, but with a wide selection and very good value. If you're looking for someplace fancy, this is not for you. If you're looking for a fair meal, this is the place.More

Amazing cappuccinos! They have excellent service. We stopped here after buying some amazing masks across the street. It was a great experience

Tucked out the way, a local style cafe serving good portions at reasonable prices. Had salad, bread & oils, pizza, pasta, 2 desserts and 3 glasses of wine for €42. Food was fresh and very tasty. A typical backstreet cafe serving good food.

The food was really fresh and very tasty. We order pasta and pizza and both of them were top notch. I was happy to find very friendly and helpful staff. Not too expensive

A pleasant little restaurant near the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa. The staff are friendly (and speak English) and we enjoyed our pasta and coffee at prices that are normal for Italy but less than in the tourist trap areas of the city. It's not...luxurious but welcome after spending several hours walking around.More

First lunch in Venezia but pizza hard on the edge. Pork cutlet with fries good but didn’t look home made. Lasagna ok. Pasta looks good did not taste.

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
