ISO Dinner for 9 persons in San Polo in Venice

This will be for 9 persons and I'm looking for a moderate-low priced dinner at under Euro 40 pp (all in with beverage/wine) during the 1st week of January 2012. Being weary from all day tours, we'd like to keep it close to where we'll be staying at in San Polo.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Within San Polo, my favorite would be Ostarion Al Garanghelo; also Antico Dolo and Trattoria Vivaldi. Nothing earth shattering but all serve good traditional Venetian cooking with a friendly staff. All are small and family owned, therefore reserve. A fall back might be Alla Madonna which some posters on this board like. I have never had much luck but it would be able to accomodate your party in a pinch. Depends on where in San Polo you are staying at, places in Dorsoduro or Santa Croce might be just as convenient.

      Put your address in venice into the Restaurant search function and it should create a list of nearby places. If its a hotel, you can just copy in the address from google. LaZucca could be considered also.

      La Zucca (aka alla Zucca)
      Santa Croce, 1762, Venezia 30135, IT

        Sorry the correct spelling for the above should be Ostaria Al Garanghelo.

          Thanks for the suggestions, everybody.
          Al Garanghelo looks good and I was able to make a reservation with a fun-sounding lady at the other end of the line.

          Btw, Alla Madonna was also considered, but fell out as they are closed for holidays during the month of January.
