Great traditional italian dishes, loved the meals I had here during my visit in Italy, small restaurant but definitely should be given a chance. Service was slow but restaurant was almost at full capacity so was understandable.

We were a party of 16 people, and got our own separate room (although this is a very small restaurant). We were offered a selection of courses (of the day), but since it was difficult to choose, we ordered them all and shared. Great food with local ingredients only. Good wine at low prices. Four courses including wine was approximately... More

My wife and I ate at la bitta last night and really enjoyed the food! We started off with a caprese salad which was awesome! I had gnocchi and my wife had veal morsels with peppers and polenta. For dessert we had tiramisu which was awesome! I'd definitely eat here again!

Cuisine in Venice has (naturally) a seafood bias, and we sought out this restaurant to try for a change as it markets itself as non-seafood. Pleased with our choice, as the food and service were very good. No credit cards.

La Bitta was our first evening meal in Venice and it was a good start. Whilst the decor is nothing special, the staff's warm welcome made us feel right at home as we settled down to peruse the daily handwritten menu and the substantial wine list. The brief menu is classic italian so don't expect any surprises but it is... More

We've eaten here on 4 out of 5 trips to Venice (the first time we didn't know La Bitta existed which is a shame) and the food is always excellent, the service good and the experience enjoyable. I've never gone wrong sticking to the nightly specials, Asparagus and quails egg salad as a starter and gnocchi with ground chicken, veal... More

My husband and I ate here and found it to be a great relief from the overpriced and so-so tourist eateries that dominate Venice. I had two entrées, the Carpaccio and the tagliatelle and both were very nice. My husband had the gnocchi and rabbit and while the gnocchi was delicious he said that the rabbit was the best he'd...

Having found this restaurant two years ago and enjoyed our meal, we decided to visit again and take our friends who were also staying in Venice. Once again we sat in the courtyard. The staff were friendly and attentive and their English was good (although we did try our limited Italian!). Again the food was excellent and I recommended the... More

once you accept that there is no fish on the menu you are home and dry We have lost the will to live after so many soft shell crabs, raw prawns, razor clams etc being offered and in some cases almost forced upon us. LaBitta is a haven no credit cards, book for 19.00 or 21.00 and enjoy! The veal... 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.
