We really don’t like going into the typical “touristy” places because most times they are overpriced and the food is simply bad. I have to say that Terrazza Sommariza IS overpriced but the food was delicious, kind of like homemade food but much better! Very...More

Tourist trap by Rialto Bridge where we stopped for lunchtime drinks. Service was fine (charged at 12%) and the hot chocolate was delicious: thick and creamy like a hot chocolate mousse. Didn’t eat so can’t comment on food. Waiter was chatty and informative.

This restaurant is in the best place right on the grand canal, the atmosphere is amazing as is the food and service. Although not the cheapest it is reasonably priced looks out onto the Gondalas and the Rialto Bridge. Lovely place to unwind and watch...More

Dear Centennial, Thank you for your review, which was first published few months ago. Please note that there were few imprecisions in your original comment (service charge was stated incorrect for example) that is why, after a new restaurant management asset, I asked Tripadvisor to...More

Pretty view, looks right at the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge. The food was good, but the prices seemed very high and the service indifferent. There are so many good restaurants to try, this one can be left for (much) later!More

Right by the water. Even though this is tourist trap area the food was surprisingly very good. Maybe a little pricier because of the area but the food was good

Wouldn't seat me at at empty table for two outside for dinner, because I was alone. I hope the rude couple behind me who happily took that table ordered the cheapest thing on the menu and didn't tip. Beyond arrogant staff for a place selling...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
