Yesterday I stopped into this restaurant for a spritz and some cicchetti. The cicchetti were very good. My favorite was the sardine saor, a typical Venetian dish. It was not served on bread. Polenta maybe? When I started to write the review last night, I...More

Looking for variety with gluten free requirements can be a challenge. This restaurant had a dedicated gluten free menu with great dessert options. Its a cute little restaurant with a very passionate waiter was amazingly attentive to our needs.

We stumbled upon this little Osteria after crossing the Rialto Bridge and escaping the tourist traps on the waters edge. It has only 10 tables and small menu but the food is ridiculous! This was by far the best seafood risotto I've ever had. Perfectly...More

I come here everytime I am in Venice. It is a small place so I always make a reservation. The easiest way to describe the menu: No Pizza, No Carne (meat), No Tourist Menu. The Bruschetta mix was very good and shared. We each ordered...More

At this point we've been in Italy 10 days, and the gluten free linguini with swordfish, tomatoes and kalamata olives was the best meal we have had, including Rome and Florence. The balance of flavors was gourmet. They made the dish without garlic and onion...More

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
