We go here year after year - it is always fabulous - this year we gave up pretending and went there five days out of seven (forcing ourselves to lunch as well, to try other places). Go there for excellent quality seafood, amazingly well cooked....More

We have eaten here many, many times over many years. It is a landmark and a fixture of Venetian restaurants. Bustling, busy, locals, tourists who speak no Italian, everyone is here. The food is on display as you walk in- fresh fish and shellfish of...More

We had a booking but were told to wait in the queue despite this. We tried to speak to someone but were told to keep queuing. We waited for a while and then left. Staff were rude.

I was looking forward to this restaurant after reading about it in a guide book. So disappointing. I had spaghetti vongole which was very average. Good house white wine. Staff seemed indifferent. We didn't bother with dessert. We visited on our last day in Venice...More

They have fantastic fresh fish, which you will see when you go inside. It is very well visited by locals. I do recommend to come early as you might have to wait a while for your table. The Waiters are very friendly.

Our concierge recommended this place as a famous restaurant. We arrived well before the crowds and were seated promptly. Our waiter was not a patient man and visibly rolled his eyes when I wasn't ready to order yet. The food was fine but the service...More

Worst of the worst. Complete tourist trap. Avoid at all costs. Our concierge called them to make a reservation and they said they do not take reservations but we can come and be seated after 10 min. We went there and ended up waiting for...More

I came here for the spider crab and the taste was ok. For the fish soup, it was below average as it was too thin. Yet, the waiter was very friendly.

I have been to this charming traditional trattoria several times so over the years and recommended it to several friends. Last time I was here, an Italian colleague was surprised to see me there at lunchtime, as he said that mostly locals ate there. Sadly...More

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

Sorry for the late response, I really don't know the prices, I'm sure they are adjusted according to the season... Hope you had a great meal if you went.

I enjoyed dining at all Madonna every time I visit Venice, but it's certainly not "fine dining." However it is open on some nights when other, better restaurants are closed, which is handy. The fish dishes (which is what... More
