I was actually trying to help my daughter find a public WC, when we stumbled upon this great little hideaway in a side alleyway. When I spotted it, I told her that she could use the toilet while I have a beer! Great decision! I...More

This is a quiet little bar/restaurant tucked in just behind the Rialto. We found this little gem 4 years ago by accident. It is now on our must go to list of restaurants.

What a great place to come and get some small plates and some great wine. Life in Venice is so much better with a little wine and a small plate.

I wanted to have light lunch at All Arco but when we got there, place was closed...don't know the reason. Then we saw this restaurant right across the alley way. But, this was a big mistake. Trippa smelled like it was made long time ago....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
