Popular amongst locals and tourists alike, easy to navigate menus, excellent value wines by the carafe. The portion sizes are very generous, perhaps too much so! My starter of fried baby shrimp and polenta , very tasty and simply prepared. Black ink spaghetti was accompanied by a sauce of octopus, calamari, tomatoes and olives, which sounds like it shouldn't work,... More

I have had the lunch special at Oniga twice now, and have been quite happy. the Quality/Price and amount/Euro are high. Service is good; winter clientele is Italian (at lunch). It's near our house but I was put off at first by the "Ristoteca" label, thinking "it goes for the tourist winos to hide bad food". Not so!! It's really... More

We know this restaurant since many years, is always very pleasant to go there, very good choice also for vegetarians, their antipasto di verdure is amazing, good tuna tartare with pistachios and a tasty salmon burger, Vegetables are well done and presented, also the salad garniture is delicious. Chocolate cake with Bronte pistachios is a must!!!!!

After a long day of archival research I was grateful for the warm welcome and good, reasonably priced food at Oniga. Though I didn't order a primo and not even a glass of wine, I was still treated very kindly. €20 for a delicious plate of grilled fish and veg is a steal in Venice. There was not even the... More

The Oniga came recommended to us from our B&B owner and we an evening meal that did not disappoint. We shared a palma ham and pear starter and followed with a traditional lasagne main. The restaurant has both inside and outside seating from where you can view the comings and goings around the small square. As with most restaurants in... More

Not the best of welcomes and agree with previous reviews that the waitress could do with some manners... Menus given without even a word and same with drinks. We ordered the lasagne and the monkfish spaghetti. Both were tasty but on the expensive side for what it was. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely as was the authentic decor.
