We had lunch in this wonderful restaurant. The welcome, smile and quick service was excellent. The choices of food were fantastic and like all Venician restaurants the fish was spot on. It is reasonably well priced and no request is too much. Thank you.

Visited La Zucca last night. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly efficient staff. Really nice menu and very different from the usual fair in Venice. Very good value for high quality food. Must go restaurant in my opinion but you need to book in advance.

We came to La Zucca after recommendation from locals. In fact we faced difficulties with ordering since the menu was only in Italian. The waiter proposed us the restaurant's famous pumkin flan. It was really tasty!

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
