We had dinner here twice in 4 days!

One of the best meals we had during our 3 week Italy trip. So happy to have found it. As you may know, Venice is very fish centric in their offerings. Alas, I am not a fish eater, so finding La Bitta was a great treat. The fresh pasta is outstanding, and the braised meats are truly wonderful. As... read more

Superb food, menu changes every night and despite the name (The Cleat), no fish. Everything is sourced fresh to the restaurant every day and that's why the menu changes every day: they cook what they get in the market during the day. No antibiotics, no growth hormones. Cash only but prices are very reasonable.

Generous portions of authentic home cooked Italian food, cosy suroundings in a narrow street, all at reasonable prices. Need to book.

There are many restaurants in the San Barnaba area and many of them have very similar menus aimed mainly at tourists. La Bitta is a small restaurant with a different, No Fish, menu. The menu appears to change daily offering a selection of typical locally inspired food. It has a great wine list, and do leave space for the brilliant... More

Found them by accident and quickly checked on line rating to check if they were any good. Restaurant is small and tables are setup for max 4 people however the wait staff quickly put together something for us (group of 8, 4 adults and 4 children). There were 4 vegetarians and the staff offered useful suggestions of things they could... More

This was a wonderful restaurant, one of the best we had in Italy. There is a limited selection but everything is delicious. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive, and the Tiramisu is by far the best I have ever had. It was nice to change it up from seafood while in Venice and this is the place to go.

My husband really enjoyed this restaurant. They had more non-fish options which is more his preference. Limited menu (about 3 apps, 3 pastas, maybe 2-3 meat w/o pasta, 3 desserts). They accommodated my kids, which is nice (plain gnocchi in tomato sauce). The portions are not huge, which is perfect and satisfying while allowing room for apps & desserts. Also,... More

My husband and I went here on our last night in Venice. It was recommended by our hotel when we asked for a moderately priced (by Venice standards, of course) restaurant with good food. Ristorante La Bitta did not disappoint! We enjoyed the caprese salad, herbed pork, and rooster very much. Keep in mind they do not serve fish, so... More

This restaurant was slightly out of town for us given our hotel location but was a in a lovely location and worth the walk. The restaurant is small and intimate and feels very authentically Venetian. The menu is very limited wth just a few specialities and 'in season' dishes but this was very appealing to us and we both tried... 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.
