Nice lunch at Campo San Barnaba

We were walking back to San Polo and decided to have a lunch at Campo San Barnaba. After we had a look at the lunch menu and other lunch offerings, we decided to have a lunch at Oniga. Quality of the food, pasta and fish, was very good as well as the service plus the ambiance of Campo San... read more

A friend and I met up in Venice recently - she from the States, I from the UK - and decided to eat at Oniga one night after taking a look at reviews, recommendations and the menus along Calle S. Barnaba. Oniga has a great atmosphere - yes, the tables are close together, but the decor is fun and the... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this restaurant. The atmosphere is lively, without being hectic with a fun decor and pleasant music. The staff is really nice and friendly but also absolutely professional and attentive. They offer great fish dishes at a reasonable price. The biscotti with a glas of Verduzzo really round up a nice menu. Loved this place!

We had a very good dinner in this small, cosy slow-food restaurant. I had a mixed grilled fish, my son had the merluzzo. Good wines, reasonably priced. Good service, and nicely decorated.

An informal restaurant that successfully blends modern presentation of food with its welcoming and low-key ambience. Service was very friendly and the food delicious. The clientele was a mix of business travellers (which you have to jusy grin and bear - it's a small restaurant and the tables are close together), tourists and locals. Definitely one to return to.

We ate here and had a great meal. This was close to our hotel . It was very cozy and very great dishes on the menu. We would certainly return if we are in the area.

We found this restaurant by chance as we had searched for another recommended restaurant (osteria) in Dorsoduro district. We visited this place just slightly after lunch time therefore restaurant was less occupied. Interior of the Ristoteca Oniga is very cozy and we felt very comfortably. The waitress was sympathetic and food (pasta as well as meat and fish dishes) very... More

Some French clients next to me just picked at random, not really understanding what they were getting, and they didin't seem thrilled by their sepia with polenta, or calves liver Venetian style. However, I had an excellent meal of roasted pumpkin with pine us, followed by pasta with artichokes and scallops, finishing off with some dessert wine and Italian biscuits.

Oniga was our favorite restaurant during our trip to Venice last year, and we made a point to have dinner there our first night back in Venice this year. We were not disappointed in the least. The place is pleasant and attractive, and the food is straightforward, reasonable, and tasty. We shared a nice, fresh octopus salad and had two... More

We've had pasta and we've liked it. A small negative point was that it was a bit cold inside - they just opened for dinner and obviously hadn't warmed the local before that. But, after the dinner, having almost all restaurant full of people, the temperature inside became the right one.

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.
