We had dinner here on the recommendation of our Air B and B host. Service was efficient and food delicious. Such a nice change from the offering everywhere else. Pannacotta and tiramisu sublime. Quite difficult to find but worth it.

It's been 2 years since we last visited the Giardinetto and sad to report that it has become mediocre. Nothing was bad but nothing was very good. The best item we had was the wine which was quite good and at a fair price. Otherwise,...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
