Good restaurant with good service.

I ate fried calamari and grilled fish platter with 2 glasses of wine. The service was nice and the fish was really nice and juicy very well cooked. I recommend this place.

We ate here on a Sunday evening and the place was quite full. Service was quick and efficient and the food was good. We shared a starter dish of salted cod and polenta and then I had mixed fried fish with lots of calimari and my daughter had Venitian style veal liver with polenta, washed down with the house white....

Easy to find bustling Trattoria with pleasant staff. Tables set a little close together. Good choice of food and service efficient. Generally the dishes were well presented but the quality was a bit variable

We got here early for lunch at 12.30, and just as well as we wouldn't have been able to just turn up much later on. There were some local regulars there as well which I took as a good thing. The staff were very pleasant and spoke much better English than my Italian. They were delighted to accommodate our messy... More

We've been here a few weeks now and had many a spaghetti alle vongole. Of all the lunches and dinners we've had in Venezia, Ristoteca Oniga served the best version of this classic dish. The olive oil was so rich it seemed like butter. The clams were flavorful and plentiful. The spaghetti cooked to perfection. The "slow food" symbol (a... More

The restaurant is simple and cosy, and the warm lighting and lively though not overbearing chatter made a wonderful backdrop to a delightful evening. We were a party of four and had the seafood and vegetarian degustation platters to start, followed that with the fried seafood and grilled seafood plates as well as a vegetarian pumpkin lasagna , and finished...

You might walk past Ristoteca Oniga because it doesn't particularly stand out. But it's definitely worth walking in! I came here on a business lunch. Inside it is compact with a warm atmosphere. The food was AMAZING. We had sardines to start, then spaghetti with mussels finished with lightly fried fish. All of the dishes were full of flavour -... 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.
