Our friends were taking us on a food and drink tour of Venice away from the tourist route and this was one place we went. Well I say it's away from the tourists but it is only 2m away from the back of McDonalds! It was a Friday night so very busy so we ordered some drinks and a round... More

Though located at the heart of tourist-crowded surroundings of Strada Nova, the restaurant serves nice local dishes like seafood with polenta at a very reasonable price (one could say that courses could have been bigger, though). Note that being open in evenings is subject to day of week.

We have eaten here a number of times and the food and service are always very good. The best thing is the fried meatballs. They are listed as an antipasto on the menu and cost 2 € each. There is also a vegetable plate listed as an antipasto. What I suggest is that you get the vegetable plate and 4... More

This place is very famous for their meatballs, and there is a reason for that! They are absolutely amazing, have as many ad you can eat, BUT leave alone the rest of the menu, it isn't anything special. We had a couple of second courses that were not good, decided to leave half of the plate and order more meatballs!!

My 16 year old daughter and I were enjoying a fabulous trip to Venice together - very special - and we were keen to try the meatballs at La Vedova. It took us an hour on a busy water taxi to get there and we arrived before the restaurant opened. We were the first one's in the door. NOT ONE... More

What a great place to find. Lovely food and service at bar followed by a full meal. Great local produce of fish. Well worthy another visit. Stick to local wine and the meal won't break 50 Euros. Will visit again tomorrow!!

Since I don't have a reservation, I arrived 10 minutes before its opening and secured a table for myself. The kitchen opens at 19:00 so I took a walk and came back then. I ordered the Polpette, the Spaghetti al nero and the Octopus. It seems a lot but actually no...since the quantity is really not that big. However, the... More

It's always busy so book in advance. It's typical Venetian fare which some people don't warm to and some people adore. Don't expect a pizza joint. Expect creamy polenta, black ink squid or sardines marinated in vinegar and raisins. Beautiful food, right up my street!

We chose to sit down and have a meal. I have fritto di mare and husband had pasta with shrimp (scampi). he hated it. I was ok with my plate but would not run back to have this again. the ciccietti at bar looked more interesting so if anyone wants to try this restaurant I would start with that because... More
