The four of us arrived early (7:30) without a reservation and had plenty of seats available, but not outside. The deep fried octopus appetizer was perfect, and served on fried salad greens that were crispy and wonderful. My red tuna was grilled somewhat rare and served sliced on a dressed salad. Everyone else enjoyed a pasta dish. The freshness of... More

Had a delightful meal here in a very cozy environment with excellent service. Might have been nice to eat outside on the tables in the square, but it was a little chilly. Started with a wonderful special of fried calamari and arugula and went on from there. Excellent fresh pasta and seasoned sauces. Best meal we had in Venice. Look... More

Oniga is Venice's version of a farm to table restaurant. The food was super fresh and fantastic. The staff was very helpful and really went out of their way to be sure we had a good time.

We had first read about this place in Rick Steves' book, then checked TA's reviews as well. We made reservations and expected to be treated to some excellent fish or sea food. It didn't happen. We both had seafood dishes. I had a daily special that included three courses featuring sardines and anchovies. My wife had a dish consisting of... 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 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 Barnaba.... More

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.

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.
