Great meal

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.

We ate here last Thursday night, the restaurant was very busy and had a lovely atmosphere. Food was excellent and well presented and reasonably priced. Location is great with wine bar near by and short walking distance to San polo and also campo Santa margarita. Highly recommend!!

We had a really wonderful lunch at Oniga. They have many options on the menu that are slow food and many organic dishes. Even the olive oil they serve is organic. We had the organic ragu with spaghetti. It was absolutely delicious. They also recommended a really nice glass of wine. We would recommend stopping in for lunch!

While serving traditional dishes, his is one of those small places trying to put a modern, fancy twist to it. Anyway, the food is good and well prepared. Valid selection of traditional dishes. The service is good, the staff is courteous. Prices are moderate, not the cheapest place, but affordable.

This small restaurant off the beaten tracks offers an authentic, excellent regional cuisine (which is mostly fish and seafood) with regional, organic products. They have only a short menu - usually a good sign - and a small selection of very good wines from Northeastern Italy. I tried one evening the grilled octopus (which was perfectly cooked) and a great... More
