the pizza selection is huge. the house wine is very good and inexpensive. one pizza per person is too much to eat unless you are a big, young man. It is conveniently located on Calle La Tolletta just off Campo San Barnaba, but if they are full they have another location on the water at Zattere.

I come here every year and it's always good. I was rather thrown by the large portions this year, so will be more restrained in future!

I have read some of the other reviews and can only tell you of our experience recently. I should point out one of the reviews clearly had the wrong restaurant as it is not canal side. We eat out a lot, in the Uk and abroad including a fair bit in Italy. We ate here three evenings in a row... More

Don't confuse this restaurant with Terrazza Dei Casin Dei Nobili, the restaurant on the water near Zattere and Giudecca, which used to have common ownership with this restaurant and is much better (and more highly rated in Tripadvisor). This restaurant is on a back street closer to the Grand Canal than Zattere and Giudecca, and is popular with locals. Unfortunately... More

A Venetian friend took me and I found it delightful. The service was excellent, attention to detail and a favorable smile, often hard to find in Venice these days. We had the Frittura which was light and a great mix of veggies and calamari. For dessert, they do a chocolate souffle, mine was apple - it takes 20 mins to... More

When we visited Venice in the early 1970s an occasional problem was that the best value restaurants tended to be filled up with other young visitors all toting the same $5-a-day guide. Today the best value places are filled up with people with TA at their fingertips. So, on an evening when we failed to get our act together to... More

Dropped in here in the evening, as wasn't much else open being late January. Looked inviting as was quite busy. We set aside the frankly cool welcome, but having asked to sit at a different table to the one we were first directed too, things were very frosty thereafter. At this point we weren't expecting much so thought we'd play... More

Were wandering around the Dorsoduro area trying to find a restaurant that was still open for a late lunch. Came across this one. It has a cozy interior and, more encouraging, quite a few locals eating there. Usually a good sign for those wanting to stay away from the main tourist trail. Had a very good lunch consisting of Carpaccio,... More

Bumped in Al Casin for a late lunch, didn't expect anything special, but got much more than we could even imagine. Ordered mussels soup x 2, fried calamari, spaghetti with sea food, plus spaghetti bolognese for the kid, and all of it was delicious, but the mussels soup is really outstanding. Everything's very fresh, nothing frozen, plus the way the... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
