My wife and I booked La Zucca several weeks prior to vacationing in Venice. Interestingly, after we had booked, we asked a friend, who had been to Venice last year, to recommend a restaurant and he sang La Zucca's praises. What are the chances out of 1200+ restaurants? Unfortunately we couldn't honor our initial reservation. Travelers beware! There are two... More

With so many restaurants in Venice we (as always) referred to Tripadvisor for the best restaurants to visit. We decided on La Zucca before leaving home and were so glad we did! La Zucca is a beautiful little restaurant which was not far from our hotel. We were warmly greeted by Cristiano and shown to a lovely table inside as... More

First let me say this is not a vegetarian restaurant, but a restaurant that also provides interesting vegetarian dishes. In terms of the food, the combination of flavours in the various veggie dishes we ordered was delicious and very enjoyable. The tofu and pesto was especially nice and I have since made my own version at home on many occasions.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by someone we met in Venice - a local real estate agent in fact. We were pressed for time and tried our luck for a table. The evenings were booked out so we had lunch. We were not disappointed. It's located a little away from the tourist hot spots right next to a small canal... More

Adding odd ingredients together does not make for fine dining. This place is a farce. Service is atrocious. Staff have presumably read the reviews by other gullible patrons and believe they really are fabulous. They're not ! There are many marvelous places to eat, drink and soak up the atmosphere in Venice - this is not one of them. The... More

This is a gem of a restaurant! Plenty of choices for the vegetarian and carnivore alike. We started with two unusual first plates - a surprising dish of perfect avocado combined with small bits of tofu (the only tofu we found in Venice) and a pumpkin flan that was delicious. We also had the rabbit and the tagliatelli. Both main... More

We found this place while out walking so booked a table outside. We are glad we booked as it was completely full all evening and was turning people away, so definitely book! We sat outside and although it doesn't look much, it was full of atmosphere and we loved the setting. All the staff were very friendly and happy to... More

We had some really great vegetarian food here having found it on TA. Although not exclusively vegetarian the food is excellent being very fresh with plenty of variety. And make sure you have a desert as tempting as all of that gelati is elsewhere. It was a bonus to sit outside which if you can I would recommend. The restaurant... More
