Relaxed atmosphere, good wines and one of the best values in Venice. We shared a starter and one main dish, and we were completely stuffed. This didn't stop us from enjoying a fantastic dessert, though. Highly recommend this place, but take a reservation. It's quaint...More

Give yourself a break from pizza and pasta!! This restaurant has a good selection of dishes that err on the vegetarian side but there are good meat dishes too. Really enjoyed our meals here.

Best falafel I've ever had and the tabouleh was divine! The service was amazing and they were really clear about what was vegan. 10/10 recommend

After a month of (absolutely delicious but maybe sometimes a little monotonous) Italian food a visit to Frary's made a delightful change. The food was great, particularly a dish of mixed appetisers and the Fessenjun, slow-cooked chicken with pomegranate and walnuts. The service was very...More

Specializes in Greek and Arabic Mediterranean food, and it is excellent! Even if you don't want break from pasta, ham, and cheese, try their spicy Iranian chicken with dates and walnuts, or the tajine.

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
