A menu with real choices, sufficiently long but not too long. A refreshing place to visit - though booking is necessary for an evening meal. I don't know about lunch. We went as a family of four - and everyone left content with a smile...More

This was the best meal we had in 10 days in Venice. It was not the cheapest but had a fantastic meal for two for approx £100. It is popular and we could not get in the first time we tried so booking is essential.

This was our best meal in Venice by far, and a nice break from the unending pizza and pasta restaurants. All five of us had outstanding dishes, including our non-vegetarian friends (there are a few meat options on the menu). The food included creative mixes...More

Staff nice, pasta just ok. The rabbit was completely dried out - basically inedible and possibly microwaved. The two staff were helpful and attentive. The ambience is cosy but the food just isn’t anything memorable. If your lazy and need a place that has ‘good...More

I didn’t understand the popularity of this place at all 🤨 The menu is only Italian, so I asked the waitress for help and ordered “Baked aubergines”, Panna cotta and espresso. Aubergines were awful! They were FRIED and too oily. Panna cotta was ok, but...More

Having researched beforehand, I decided on la zucca for my birthday dinner during our weekend in Venice. Some of the reviews said to book but we decided to risk it as it was January and quieter. The day before we popped in at lunch time...More

Venice struggles for non-fish eaters but then you can’t really complain about that considering its situation! This is a good option for those that don’t eat fish though. Decent selection of meat and vegetarian dishes in a nice area slightly off the main tourist areas....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

They take credit cards in general. I believe Visa is one of them.

yes they do and in response to the above, of course the menu is in Italian (Venice is in Italy) but they give you a translation card and more importantly the waiter speaks good English and can give you recommendations.

You should be able to view these online. Vegetarian (unsure about strictly vegan) options plentiful. I'm one and LOVED the menu! I specifically remember the artichoke dish. Delicious. Great restaurant.
