Based on good Tripadvisor reviews, we chose this restaurant for dinner and were quite disappointed in the food quality. We had much better meals in Venice for less or similar prices. The pizza was the best dish (the seafood risotto had comically little seafood), but even that wasn't anything to write home about. The service and atmosphere was nice, but... More

We went on Valentine's night so had pre booked and we were glad that we did! By 8pm, it was packed! Lots of people of all ages and types having a good night. This is a more modern bistro than some of the traditional Venetian places but it is lovely. Good choice of food, nice friendly staff, great drinks menu.... More

Homemade pizza to die for. Huge portions, fresh ingredients, lovely atmosphere. If you're looking for real Italian food, and nothing touristy, this is a great spot.

I swear every time I'm in Venice I make sure to stop by and have dinner at Muro Frari. The pizza, as usual, was terrific. I had the Mastea with fresh buffalo mozzarella and a home-made tiramisù for dessert. Amazing!!!

Although we booked a table and showed them the confirmation, they refused they had availability and did not put down a table reserved for us, so we had to leave. Terrible behaviour as well.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch wanting to try pizza in Venice for the first time and were not disappointed by any means! 5 pages of the menu with all different pizzas to choose from! Our waiter was very friendly and helpful and said we could change anything on any of them to what we wanted... which is... More

The pizza served is really good especially the ones with Buffalo Mozzarella on top. Their salads were fresh and hearty. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Make a reservation or arrive early. The restaurant is very busy and often has a large table of tourists booked.

Pizza for both of us but there was a wide selection on the menu including meat & fish. Great table service & preparation at the end of your individual tables. Nice atmosphere and wine . Would go back.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
