We found this restaurant within 50 yards of our apartment and ate there on our first night in Venice. The raw fish antipasti was a superb dish, including the rare canoche, a sort of crayfish. We enthused about it and the patron rushed back into the kitchen and cooked two of them(at no charge) to show how they tasted. The... More

It was our last night in Venice and we read about Boccadoro and had to try it. We were not disappointed. The menu is mostly seafood. For a starter we had crudos for two. This is a version of Italian sashimi and it was great. Next we had gnocchi with spider crab sauce and black tagliolini with scallops and artichokes.... More

On a small square, well of beaten track and far from touristic highway rail station-Rialto-San Marco, Boccadoro is serving honest local food at rather upmarket prices (100 EUR for one for starter, pasta, cheese & coffee with an excellent bottle of wine). The calm of the square is worth it, pasta are delicious (gnochetti with spider crab) and grilled veal... More

Hard to find but was worth the effort. Very good seafood, had raw appetizer and then also a hot one. Nice service, good wine list. Take your servers recommendation and you won't be disappointed. One note of caution: we sat outside and had to move due to mosquitoes, first time that happened on this trip. If you have bug wipes,... More

My sons girlfriend had read a review about this restaurant on their flight from Boston to Heathrow, so my son decided to call on the off chance that we would get a table and it turned out to be our lucky night. This restaurant is in a very quiet location and we used google maps on our phone to find... More

Difficult to find but eventually we found the square and an outside restaurant which was very busy with helpful staff. We both had Italian version of a fish dish called "s.pietro radicchio" and very delicious it was a splendid surprise. The fish went down with two beers and still water. Atmosphere was typical holiday mood and entertaining. We thought the... More

Our "Foodie" family had one of the best meals ever here. All of the ingredients were fresh and local to Venice and excellently prepared. The chef ask us what kind of food that we enjoyed then made superb recommendations. The Pilgrim scallops were incredible! The restaurant is located on an open patio and we sat outside. It was so pleasant... More

A delightful dining experience in a quiet courtyard in Cannaregio. Tables outside near where children were playing and neighbors conversing from their windows give it a neighborhood feel. We were warmly greeted by the owner and seated promptly -- the waiter brought a bottle of prosecco and told us about the specials -- we ordered and appetizer and were not... More

The location, which is away from the typical touristic route, is quiet and picturesques. The atmosphere is very welcoming, mainly due to the chef and his wife warmness. I Have never eaten such a high quality fish (branzino's tartare...) and handmade pasta. The vegetables which i Was also fond of were km 0 and bio, coming from a nearby Island,... More
