We stopped in Bar Ai Nomboli on the way to the Frari for coffee. Their cappuccino may have been the best we had in Venice. They add an extra touch of sprinkling powdered cocoa on top. Nice. Give them a try if you are in...More

We sought this place out after it being in the lonely planet guide. Was cheap and yummy. The service was a bit abrupt but the panini was very nice. Also very good price and if you can get a table outside it’s a nice setting...More

Worst service I have ever experienced in Italy. I was told a drink was one price and when I left they raised the price. When I tried to explain that their previous barman had given me a different price the owner started screaming at me....More

Came across this corner bar cum restaurant after a long walk from the Rialto to the Friari. A party of very smart office workers were eating outside and this gave us a clue to the standard of the bar. We were greeted by a very...More

In this unpretentious local family-run bar, they offer the most amazing choice of delicious freshly-made paninis and sandwiches. Or, you can mix and match the fillings to your taste. They are exceptional and perfect for lunch or a snack while strolling around the city. And...More

There's a huge selection to pick from and you can even make up your own fillings. Panini are lovely and fresh and all of the combinations work really well. Have been there twice in the last two days for lunch.

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
