Mérite le detour

Very decent food. We stayed in the neighberhood and went there twice. Not top food, but excellent value . Which is not always easy to find in touristic places like Venice. "Mérite le detour". Off course , when you take the cheapest menue , don't expect any kind of miracle. And don't go there when... read more

If you are staying within half an hours walk/vaporetto you should have lunch or dinner at this local restaurant. Serving fresh and local fare it is obvious why the locals flock here as well.

We had eaten at Oniga a few years ago. This time the dining experience didn't seem to match our memories from our previous visit. Good and friendly service. Very popular. Food tasty and decent portions. Would recommend. Perhaps the menus degustation are better than what we chose.

The wonderful restaurant is a busy place which seemed to be frequented by locals. Always a good sign! It was extremely busy but we were lucky enough to get a table outside in the square after a short wait. The menu had all of the Venetian style of food you would expect and our meals were cooked to perfection. The... More

Stopped for a quick bite at lunchtime and what a treat we found! The squid & rocket salad were fried together (great result) and the sea bass was excellent too ! Thoroughly recommend!

We asked the concierge at our hotel to help us find a place locals would go and tourists would miss. Venice is like the armpit of a once beautiful woman who is now old and withered and the tourist situation here is hardly worth the effort of being here. I honestly can't wait to leave. But thankfully she sent us... More

It's hard to find something good, special, even normal Italian quality in the tourist hell like Venice. This was nice suprise as we just came here by luck. The food was excellent Venetian specialties. The quality was absolutely great. Top notch. Quality ingredients used and seemingly somebody had paid attention today's trends like organic food. We also liked the atmosphere... More

5 stars! Service, food, atmosphere it was fantastic. Starters of mussels and clams in tomato sauce was sensational. Baby squid with a balsamic vinegarette was great. Our pasta mains were cooked to perfection and so fresh. We would definately recommend it if you are om Venice!

Not sure why Tripadvisor called this Ristoteca and not Ristorante as shown in my receipt. Anyway, we were looking for a nice dinner place to end our visit to Venice. My son googled up, found this place and we decided to give it a try. We were there at 6.30ish but they wouldn’t let us in and told us to... More

I give this one 5 stars because they let us in without reservation. This one is actually in Dorsoduro, Venice. You can find it on Google map and came recommended by my son after searching the web. The restaurant opens at 7.00pm only and takes reservation. We were there at 6.30 and have no reservation. Came 7.00pm they open the... 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.
