Great location next to a canal where you can sip wine and watch the world go by. The local square had entertainment.

After spending a morning completely lost in Venice - as they say you are expected to. It was nice to find an outdoor table, uncrowded view of the Canal and good food. The spritz was the perfect drink before a dish of spaghetti with squid...More

Our hotelier suggested we travel across the Rialto Bridge and head to the right for some excellent dining choices. We opted for Al Pesador and enjoyed our meal tremendously.

After quite a walk around Venice, we came across this restaurant late one morning, and just wanted to sit with a long drink and enjoy the view. Other people were doing the same thing so we sat down and waited. And waited, and waited. Took...More

Delicious food! I actually love Italian food, but this restaurant makes me feel crazy about the food. If you´re looking for a nice place, with delicious food and for a good price, this is the place!

I went there because someone recommended the place that isn’t actually that great. Food is good but just as good as in other restaurants that are less expensive. Service was very nice.

Just popped in here having crossed the Rialto bridge and needing a thirst quencher. Good service with a fantastic view of the Grand Canal and its heavy, daily, traffic

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
