Although in the Santa Croce neighborhood, this friendly and popular trattoria is really only a short walk from the Rialto Market. You may not be the only tourist here, but you'll certainly be outnumbered by the locals (and if just a couple or a trio, the friendly staff may ask you to share a table). There's no English menu, but a server can usually help you out. Although pizza is not a Venetian specialty, it's pretty good here, but the star attractions are the generous
appetizers and excellent shellfish pastas. The house wine is quite drinkable, and in good weather, you can enjoy your meal in the pergola-covered courtyard (do reserve if you want to snag a table there).
