Recommended by our hosts, this restaurant did not disappoint. We had a delicious hot cheese salad and pasta dishes. Charming place in the lovely, quiet, Dosoduro area.

Exceptional for Venice: They don´t serve seafood at all. If that´s OK with you: This is a very good place. Very nice hostess, very good food. You´ll most likely need a reservation to get a table for dinner. If you don´t have one: Go when they open, ask when there will be a table for you, book it, and go... More

Came highly recommended by our hosts at Cima Rosa. Small menu changes daily, with home cooked food. The pumpkin gnocchi and bacon wrapped beef were excellent, inexpensive wine list and attentive but not intrusive service. Need to make a reservation, this small restaurant is obviously highly recommended by people who know venice well and consequently gets booked up quickly.

A non fish restaurant, we had venetian liver/onions, pumpkin gnocci,veal morsels with mushrooms. All meals were delicious, portions not large, but fair as were the prices. Bring cash, no credit cards. Finished off with a variety of grappas, a nice night

My wife and I frequented La Bitta twice whilst in Venice recently. It had been recommended in both of the guides I used for our eleven-day trip, the "Rough Guide to Venice and the Veneto" and the just-published edition of "Time Out" for Venice. La Bitta is a small and intimate restaurant, open only for dinner, and very close to... More

A friend recommended we try La Bitta and we couldn't have been happier. The menu is fantastic, the wine delicious and the service superb. Debora the owner suggested which dishes we should try and each dish was great. The wine she suggested we pair with our meal was a perfect match. This place is a must try.

We went to this restaurant based on a review from a tourist guide. It is small so you will need to reserve or turn up at 6:30 to book a table on the day. The head waiter (owner?) was very very welcoming, spoke english and french helped us choose a good wine to go with the food and was generally... More

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
