Lovely restaurant

We should have checked and then we'd have realised that Saturday is fish night. Oops! Jonathon is allergic to fish but the was looked after very well and served some delicious veggie pasta while I enjoyed lovely sea bass. Very busy so you need to book.

After reading through the reviews on here about the excellent food & 'Venetian' experience and the need to book in advance to get a table, we sought out this restaurant and happily managed to get a table relatively quickly. The menu was in italian and is supposedly changed everyday. However, whilst waiting for our food, we observed other dishes coming... More

I went there following a recommendation by the German food magazin "essen und trinken". I had booked a table in advance but when I arrived I had the feeling it was a burden to assign a table to me. I did not like the one given to me and asked for another one which I finally got after some discussions... More

During our recent week in Venice we had meals in the Harry's Bar and Poste Vecie restaurants. Not cheap but really enjoyed them. The food in this place however was great too, but so was the service and the atmosphere, so we returned on our last night to say a proper goodbye to Venice. Doesn't look much from outside, but...

Excellent food & local Wine, you need to fast for lunch to fully enjoy your diner at this authentic Venetian osteria, quality fresh fish & seafood, excellent recommendation for local Wine makers. An excellent evening out.

Came across this place by accident when lots of other popular choices were busy... that said, the menu options were good, wine list decent too... Only downside was the attitude of the staff! A tad supercilious and as they say in Italy... 'Odioso'. A pity...

The hotel was extremely close to our hotel and offered a set menu. Very reasonably priced (especially for Venice). Mainly stuck to Pasta's but very good.

Osteria Ai Assassini Venice’s Osteria ai Assassini offers diners a unique selection of quality food. Neither the selection, nor the décor is what most Americans would think of as typically Italian. The menu changes daily and entres include typical Venetian dishes often of braised meats, rather than the usual tourist fare. The interior is cozy and rustic. The service is... More

We came to this place for the recommendation of one of travel books. I must say we are very reasonable people. But this place is simply awful. Pasta and bread sticks are packages. Food is short of rubber mediocre pieces of rotten smelly fish. Our family of five did not finish our plates. It was simply not good. When we... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local for its seafood. However when we came we were told only Thursday and Friday is there seafood. My partner had the pasta and meatballs which was okay. the waiter looked affronted when asked for a second spoon of parmesan and said thats another euro. He was rather rude. I noticed them... More
