Fantastic restaurant, incredible food!

Fantastic restaurant, in expensive and a really pleasurable experience. The food was really tasty and well equipped for vegetarians. The gnocchi with pumpkin and smoked ricotta was delicious! Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Ristorante La Bitta offers flavourful and hearty dishes served in a traditional-style. This dinner-only restaurant has a small courtyard with limited seating. Remember that credit cards are not accepted at this "cash only" establishment.

A small and charming restaurant serving wonderful food. A little gem. You need to book, though, or you'll be disappointed!

We eat in this enoteca et trattorio on a short holyday in Venice. What a delight. They have two rounds one at seven ochlock and the other at nine oclock. Reservation is not a must but advisible. We came at a little over seven and without a reservation we had the last table. The food was marvelous.

We have just returned from a 70th birthday trip to magical Venice, our 3rd time, and the birthday ladies first. We spent our last evening in La Bita, which was just around the corner from our apartment. We really enjoyed this place, small, rustic & very atmospheric. We booked a couple of days in advance & would recommend anyone doing... More

A good diner (veal liver was excellent and the panacotta was to die for), reasonably priced (which is not so common in Venice) in a very local atmosphere (far from the "usual tourist restaurants"). Service is friendly and efficient. A must if you are in the area (booking is advisable as the place is very popular).

I returned a month later to eat again at this restaurant. The food was still excellent, and the wine also. The service is good and the staff for the most part is warm, and the one (female) person who is not so much does warm up if you talk with her. They serve only local food and wine. They have... More

We booked ahead for our first night as it was close to our hotel and were so pleased we returned two nights later and had another great experience. La Bitta offers something different in Venice - no fish. Easy for tourists as a variety of languages spoken but definitely not 'touristy'. The menu is fairly restricted but this means you... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Venice 3 years ago, when we ate here twice! We were not disappointed when we returned last night. For appetizers we had the smoked carpaccio on a bed of baby greens and the asparagus salad with quail eggs. Both dishes were delicious. The asparagus came with a wonderful mustardy mayonnaise. For main dishes we... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel as we could not get in to La Zucca. It is tiny so we were really glad the hotel booked a table for us. They effectively have two sittings as do most restaurants in Venice - either a 7.30 or 9.00pm booking. We went for the early one. I had an artichoke... 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.
