We popped in here by chance for a quick bite and a drink. Staff were very friendly and explained what wine was available etc. The beer was also better than the standard lager you see everywhere in Venice if you are a real ale drinker. We shared a cheese and ham sandwich with grilled veg on it...it was really tasty!... More

One of the best hot chocolates in Venice - thick and creamy and lush! And the selection of gins looked pretty tempting too!

This place was fantastic. We enjoyed every moment. The lady who looked after us ( in the photo) was superb. She described every drink in detail and also the tapas. We were there for a few hours and it was a brilliant time. The music was somewhere in time smooth jazz so relaxing. . . The cocktails were tasty and... More

Very atmospheric and pretty Bell Epoque styled bar and cafe with great cakes and snacks and excellent spritzers. Right opposite the Frari's front door!

Incredibly friendly staff. It was a perfect stop for afternoon coffee and snack. It's the kind of place that makes you glad you traveled all the way to Italy.

This is a small friendly bar with decent wine and a selection of snacks. As well as the main room, there is galleried area on the first floor. The staff make a good effort to get things right and the prices are reasonable.

Me and my mum popped into the Caffe dei Frari after a walking tour, in search of a little sustenance before continuing to explore the wonderful city of Venice. We had been recommended to try 'cicchetti' - like tapas - and the local favourite cocktail - spritz (white wine + soda + campari / apero) on the tour, and were... More

When visiting Venice, we drank a cappucino here and it was a nice experience, the staff, the design and interior and the cappuccino as well. Not crowded, not touristy, small place for a short break during sightseeing.

A small and nice café just below the Canal. If you sit on second floor you could see the Square and the Canal from the window. Nice food, large portions.

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.
