An intimate dining experience - limited menu but interesting choices in a small restaurant off the beaten track. Excellent carpaccio, goose and grappa! No credit cards, though.

Off the beaten path in a nice local neighborhood. You can sit inside or in the back courtyard. We ate outside. They have a hand written menu on the table that changes daily. Lots of choices. We found everything to be delightful. Nice to eat at a place locals would eat at rather than the usual tourist spot.

We've been coming to La Bitta for several years, but I've never reviewed it before, mainly for selfish reasons - the place is small and always busy - we don't want it to become so popular that we can't get a table! However, on our last visit Venice was deathly quiet, and La Bitta was feeling this downturn as well... More

Great atmosphere, great service and great food! As simple as that! Booking is advised, as we witnessed potential customers being turned away.

This is the place to go! I love fish, but after being in Venice I needed some meat! It was a special occasion dinner....and we were more than pleased! You do need reservations since it is small & very popular!

Veal liver in Venetian style is liver with onions, but the liver was excellent and not overdone. Good pasta, good salads. Pumpkin soup was delicious.

Recommended by our hosts, this restaurant did not disappoint. We had a delicious hot cheese salad and pasta dishes. Charming place in the lovely, quiet, Dosoduro area.

Exceptional for Venice: They don´t serve seafood at all. If that´s OK with you: This is a very good place. Very nice hostess, very good food. You´ll most likely need a reservation to get a table for dinner. If you don´t have one: Go when they open, ask when there will be a table for you, book it, and go... More

Came highly recommended by our hosts at Cima Rosa. Small menu changes daily, with home cooked food. The pumpkin gnocchi and bacon wrapped beef were excellent, inexpensive wine list and attentive but not intrusive service. Need to make a reservation, this small restaurant is obviously highly recommended by people who know venice well and consequently gets booked up quickly.

A non fish restaurant, we had venetian liver/onions, pumpkin gnocci,veal morsels with mushrooms. All meals were delicious, portions not large, but fair as were the prices. Bring cash, no credit cards. Finished off with a variety of grappas, a nice night
