We stumbled upon this small cozy restaurant and lucky to get a table without a reservation. The service was wonderful and the food was superb. We started with a gnocchi dish and a carpaccio...and both were perfect. We chose the lamb shank and pork chops for entries and both were wonderful in presentation, preparation, and taste. We will come back... More

One of the few - if not the only- restaurant in Venice with only meat and vegetarian dishes on the menue. They serve the best Panna Cotta I ever had!

Had a lovely dinner here. The restaurant specialises in meat, as opposed to seafood like many Venetian restaurants. The Lady owner was lovely and really looked after us, suggesting (instructing us on :)) some great local wines. My wife's steak was the best steak I have ever tasted - was gutted I didn't order it!

La Bitta was delicious start to finish. Best meal we had in Venice and during our 16 trip in Spain and Italy. Simple daily menu, with perfect execution and cookery. Was a great value for the amazing meal we had. Go here!

Went to La Bitta on a Friday night in December. Lovely atmospheric walk along narrow street from hotel then into equally atmospheric and cosy little eatery. Short menu, but I prefer this and food was excellent for both my wife and I. Good advice with wine and had a local one we would not have otherwise ordered. Excellent service.

Small and cozy place, very nice atmosphere. We were celebrating my birthday and the waiter was so nice to put a candle on my dessert. The food is good, not a big choice but everything we tried was perfect.

La Bitta was recommended to us and so we called in on New Years Eve without a reservation and were so pleased that we were able to eat there. The menu was interesting with a choice of meat, vegetarian and pasta dishes and what we English would consider Venetian. The food was delicious and the service very good. Thank you... More

They say Veneitan restaurants focus on fish, I decided on La Bitta as fisherman tend not to fish on Sunday's therefore a lack of fresh fish on Mondays in restaurants. The starters of pasta and gnocchi were very good but the mains of fillet and lamb shank were a bit bland. €100 for 2.

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.
