Do yourself a favour and find this place in the Dosoduro area. It has a fantastic Seafood meal to share and the best Octopus salad to date. Be careful the Grappa is strong and you may have trouble finding your way back to your hotel. Lol

We ate here twice during our visit in September. The fish dishes were great, and my husband had a tasty liver and onions dish. Massive portions of pasta. Beautiful and interesting bread selection. They also do vegetarian food.

Had walked past the restaurant a few times, both lunchtime and in the evening and it was always busy. The location is beautiful and both the inside and outside spaces are lovely. The food was great and different to a lot of the restaurants we found in the city, in that it had a small menu, with a good mix... More

After winding through the streets to find another restaurant, we were disappointed to discover it closed on a Tuesday evening, but liked the look of Oniga and were late enough that we were able to get a table (inside). We enjoyed our meal (salmon burger for my wife, taglioni with shrimp and chanterelles for me). Great flavors and interesting combinations.... More

We spent a wonderful evening sitting in the Campo San Barnaba enjoying the menu of Ristoteca Oniga. My husband chose the fried baby prawns with polenta and it was delicious! It is similar to shrimp and grits in the low country of the southern US, but it was not covered in greasy gravy and didn't have sausage in it. I... More

we came there with venetian friends & it was the perfect choice for a simple, authentic & not too expensive lunch. The Tuna tartare is delicious, the ingredients are fresh & most of the time organic/bio. The terrace is very nice on a beautiful square. This restaurant is a pearl in a city like Venezia where sometimes too much tourism... More

We stumbled upon this place whilst getting lost on the way to somewhere else. If you are a vegetarian, like my wife, and you are a bit bored of pizza, then it's actually quite hard to find a restaurant serving good vegetarian food. This place is the exception. The staff were really helpful and the food was amazing. It's located... More

Food vas extremely tasty! For dessert we had tiramisu. Good, but served as dessert, not cake. Waitresses busy running and it's a little bit difficult to make them... More

We tried to get a place outside, and waitress said that she could arrange one for us if we came back in half an hour. I asked if I should make an official reservation, but she convinced me that she will remember us. After we came back from drinks however, she pretended not to recognize me and said that she... More
