Simple traditional Italian mini osteria. Few tables and a lot of people tend to stand outside. The drinks are cheaper than to be expected so close to the Rialto Bridge. The appetisers are brilliant. Freshly cooked prawns in batter, rice balls in a crispy bread crumb coat, cod in batter and meat balls to a traditional Venitian recipe. Nothing to... More

Like a boat, good place for have a good glass of Valpolicella wine, a typical Veneto red wine. They serve some "cicchetti" that is like tapas in Spain. Small quantity of several food and you can choise meat fish or vegetable cicchetti. I recommend for an aperitif and to drink some wine (I suggest Valpolicella DOC or Valpolicella Ripasso)

We visited Osteria Alla Ciurma everyday of our holiday. It gets very busy for the few hours that it is open and at first, it can be quite daunting trying to fit in amongst the locals. Just walk up to the counter when a space becomes available and order a drink and point to what cicchetti you fancy. Our favourites... More

We stopped in here from breakfast. The Cichetti is amazing and really well priced, especially considering the area and its popularity. The lady that served us was super friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this place enough, especially if you wanted to try Cichetti! P.s Prosecco is only €2.50 a glass!

Visited this backstreet bar today having ventured down a number of streets looking for it. Expectations (as hunger) were quite high given the reviews. Wandering in, the bar is barely big enough to swing a cat. A couple of locals chatted with one of the staff. The other stood on watching, neither acknowledged us which was a shame. We took... More

We found this place friendly and very affordable. Home made typical venetian food is accompanied by a nice selection of local wine. Staff is very friendly. Perfect for an evening bite.

Visited this place twice. Very friendly. Most were locals. It was hilarious to hear other tourist spending $80-$100 for lunch and we spent $20 for the two of us. Food was excellent. Staff very friendly. Wine was great. Many different selections. Loved it!

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.
