This was a recommendation from Roberto, our concierge at the Hotel American Dinesen and Roberto knew his restaurants. It was so good we came back for lunch a couple days later. The food was tasty and the portions were filling. When we came back for lunch, the girls had huge salads and I had the mussels that I had seen... More

Ristoteca Oniga was very close to our hotel, the Palazzo Stern. We sat out on the campo and had gnocchi, and spaghetti with buffalo mozzarella and basil. It was reasonably priced and tasty. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the campo on a pleasant day in July. I did not feel the waitresses were overly friendly, although I am sure they... More

We ate here twice. The first time was at an outside table. We had an ok risotto and the special of fried shrimp and polenta which was good. The bread basket was really good with a mix of different things. The second time we ate there we had the grilled seafood platter, which was wonderful, and a local beer. We... More

The prices are pretty reasonable for the area. I was able to try the black pasta and the lasagne. They were both decent. The bread basket was good.

We chose poorly tonight. The meal was average and the service was very disappointing. There is little positive for me to add so I will finish the review here.

This is a bustling place with a very good menu and very attentive and friendly staff. A good place to eat after a full day's sightseeing on a quiet, but easily accessible, square in the lovely Dorsoduro area.

Tratorria on a relatively quiet square close by the Gallerie dell'Accademia which serves a wider range of dishes than you might find in more run of the mill restaurants. Lots of seafood dishes in the Venetian style in very generous portions. This isn't just a pasta and pizza joint for tourists but somewhere you can try something different. Recommended!

Customer service is key to any business and at this restaurant they should take note that they need to improve. My father continuously made reference to the waitresses being moody and unhelpful - he was spot on. The food was ok but largely forgettable. There are far better eateries in Venice.

We had lunch here on our first day in Venice. We just picked it out of the blue. We were more than pleased for our first Venetian meal. The bead was excellent, just what you would expect. My wife had sardines served with potatoes, They were quite good, not like the nasty sardines one gets out of a tin in... More
