A very 'real' Venetian restaurant. Recommended by our hotel, our meal was absolutely delicious. Wonderful service. And when we didn't know was grappa was, we were pretty much forced to drink some for free!

Luckily this restaurant was literally just around the corner from where we stayed. Excellent priced meal (especially for Venice) with freshly cooked food and wine sold by how much of the bottle you drank! Small dining room with great atmosphere. The evening was great but make sure you book as it gets really busy and full.

Excellent, well priced meal and wine. Nice small dining room, good service. Would definitely go again when we come back. Close to the best I've had in Italy so far.

This place is typical Venetian, located in a little hidden street and its food is just delicious! Their menu is purely meat. But what I like the most is the wines they recommend you! You can tell they know very well each and single wine they sell and they are excellent at recommending you the one that matches best with... More

We had rabbit and "stewed rooster" , both exceptional. The panacotta is unbelievably good. By far the best meal we had in Venice. It's a small place, so book or go early.

We have eaten at La Bitta half a dozen times, and enjoyed it every time. Debora provides lovely service, and remembered us from two years before. "I remember you. You sat in that corner, with an older woman, and then you came again with a younger couple".

Nice little restaurant just off barnaba square in lovely Dorsaduro. Best meal we had in Venice, for very reasinable price. No fish, meat and veggie dishes. Real osteria cooking with different menu every day. I had a supberb carpaccio (10 euro) gnocchi with artichokes and smoked provelone (15) and perfect tiramisu (6,50). Staff was helpfull and kind. Do reserve, small... More

I ate here with my husband on our last night in Venice, and although we had read in our guidebook that they only do two seatings, we were able to sit right down. The handwritten menu did not disappoint!! Attentive service, OUTSTANDING food, and a cozy, romantic atmosphere made this dinner stand out as one of our best in Venice.... More

Small, intimate, family run, well above basic Venice standard. Meat and smallish choice but for foodies a really good place. No credit cards thins out run of the mill tourist crowd as does location ... a bit of the beaten track but in a interesting neighbourhood

I really do not enjoy going against the flow but this restaurant is what dinner party stories are made of. On the night we went the often mentioned Deborah was having a very off night affecting both staff and customers, her explanation of the rabbit stew(grandmothers recipe) yeah right, did not mention the addition of tounge numbing cloves which in...
