We had one of our best meals at this restaurant. We both ordered the pumpkin gnocchi and it was spectacular. It's a relatively tiny restaurant so it's best to come with a reservation. We didn't have one and they didn't seem to mind that night but it's best not to take a chance!

Wonderful little restaurant a short walk from Piazza San Barnaba, and the Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stop. Outside eating is a little courtyard rather than on the street. Maitre'd is attentive and offers good advice - her comment that the Sauvignon Blanc was to die for was spot on. We shared a porchetta starter, and mains were 'stewed rabbit' and calf liver... More

A charming restaurant with a pretty little courtyard away from the mass of San Marco tourists in Venice. La Bitta is also a departure from the typical seafood-heavy Venetian cuisine, but all the better for it. Our group of three shared a starter of burrata (a creamier mozzarella) and tomatoes, bread with mains of pasta (can't remember the name -... More

So good. Carpaccio salad and fresh mozzarella is a sure thing. I had liver and it was melt in your mouth good. Not a liver lover? Try their fresh pasta, out of this world. Just be sure to get there early as it fills up fast, better yet make a reservation.

Ate here with my family (3 couples). They have this nice little courtyard in the back which is where we sat. The house wine was fantastic, the fixed menu had good options for vegetarians and red meat lovers - the beef tagliatelle was a highlight. The service was very good, the perfect blend of attentive yet non-intrusive. If I had... More

My food was good (lamb chops) and my friend said hers was the best liver an onions she's ever had. I liked that the menu was hand written- probably means it changes a lot, which is a good sign!

I know it sounds like an exaggeration, but seriously, La Bitta is amazing. We are well-traveled people, from the San Francisco area, no stranger to good food. We have eaten at La Bitta twice, last month and two years ago, and it was superb both times. The first time I ever ate carpaccio was at La Bitta, and it literally... More

One of our favourite restaurants in Venice. The ambience is warm and inviting, the menu is short and changes often, a good sign for a well-run restaurant. No fish, but that is not important. A reliable choice and convenient to the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto stop.

When you get a little tired of the same menus at so many of the osterias in Venice this place offers something authentic, different and of good quality. It is a small eating area so you have to be prepared to tolerate your fellow diners but the ambiance is warm and the waiters very helpful, fun and friendly. Perhaps uniquely... More

Our hotel made the reservations while we walked and ambled around finding the address. Distraction are what Venice is famous for. The owners couldn't have been friendlier and the tucker better. Sliced ham and horseradish sauce was a good start but my tagliatelle with red pepper sauce and sausage may be a contender for the best pasta we had in... More
