We wanted to avoid the ubiquitous tourist menus so delighted when we discovered this great little restaurant in a side street near the Rialto Bridge. We enjoyed two excellent pasta dishes and two beers, including the cover charge, for €45. We noticed if you stand...More

A delightful, tiny little bar with charming staff. While the must-try is the sweet wine (like a Vin Santo) with the little Venetian cookies for dipping, the hidden gem is the house-made tiramisu!

Lovely little gem in the back streets of Venice. Very fresh, tasty Chicchetti at a very reasonable price. Well worth a visit if you're exploring the city and need a quick pit stop!

This is a quiet little bar/restaurant tucked in just behind the Rialto. We found this little gem 4 years ago by accident. It is now on our must go to list of restaurants.

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
