Busy Place

Great food with a very different deep fried calamari and rucola and excellent spaghetti vongole with extremely sweet baby clams. Service is limited as the staff are run off their feet but we had one nice waitress who did set a table for us after two others just said they were full and walked away... read more

This is a busy restaurant tucked in the corner of a square. If you haven't booked you need to there for 7 when it opens. The food is simple and well cooked.I had the grilled fish for main. Nicely cooked on the bone three medium size fish. I can eat a lot and it was plenty for me. Not the... More

So we turned up 20 minutes before they opened and were told they were closed and not taking bookings. Then they started taking bookings and told us they were full. I wouldn't eat here if someone else paid for it. It's ok to be full, but when you weren't and then ignore people who you know are first is simply... More

Small little out of the way place that is excellent. Had a lunch & dinner, both excellent. The seafood medley has to be split for 2 but enough to feed a family of 4!!! So fresh, tasty and a bargain for the quality & quantity of the meal

I had tomato sauce pasta with anchovies and capers. It was one of the best pastas I've tried in Venice. The interior was cozy. The service could be better though.

After some good reviews and a recommendation from our hotel we expected good things here, but went away with mixed feelings. It is a very small place, with folks sitting on top of each other and our server seemed harried. The menu was limited and while we aren't picky eaters it was hard to find main courses that we cared... More

It was lunch time, we were hungry and walking through Campo San Barnaba. We have been to Venice and Campo San Barnaba before, but this is the first time we stopped at this restaurant. There were available tables outside,and we decoded to stop here for lunch. We were fortunate to find a table under an umbrella and sheltered from the... More

We really liked this place. We arrived for dinner near the closing time, but they still welcomed us in with smiles on their faces. The atmosphere was both rustic and modern, but a little dark. The food was delicious! As an appetizer we ordered the mussels and clams. Wow! So yummy. I ordered the pumpkin and ricotta lasagna, which was... More

We ate here on our 1st and 2nd nights in Venice and loved it so much we turned up again on the third night - only to be turned away as they were fully booked. Pays to turn up at 7pm when they open (or make a booking), as it appears to fill up very quickly and people wait round... More

Very nice location. The staff seemed very busy and having little amount of time on each table. The food was decent. We ordered starters before some meat dishes as main course. The starters were way too much on. Its not often I complain on the amount of food, but as a starter course it was too much. House red wine... 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.
