Lovely local restaurant with authentic Venetian food. If it's available, have the veal's liver and the lovely Venetian Cabernet Sauvignon the waitress recommended us.

The restaurant isn't the most attractive, feels a bit like eating at your granny's and she's put some tables together. The tables too were very close together, the place was full of Italians so we hoped we would be in for some great food. We weren't disappointed, the food was excellent, simple quality ingredients, full of flavour. I had the... More

This is a place for well prepared Italian comfort food with many original dishes and a pleasant and engaging host. Their specialties are their meat dishes. Good wine list and you want to leave room for dessert because this place has an outstanding pannecotta.

My wife and I shared an apartment in Venice with her parents during the Thanksgiving holidays. La Bitta was recommended by our guide who was native Venetian and a resident of Dosurduro where La Bitta is located. We had an opportunity to try many restaurants for lunches and dinner while in Venice but La Bitta is our favorite. We ate... More

We had La Bitta recommended to us by a friend who lives in Venice, and we're so happy we went! They have seatings at 7:00 and 9:00pm which fill nightly, so it's best to call or stop by to make a reservation a day in advance. The wine list has many reasonable choices, the staff is attentive and concerned for... More

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!
