Good restaurant in the alleyways

This takes a bit of finding, in fact we came across it by accident when lost in the alleyways. It was a cold night in January when we were there so it was a welcoming warm environment to go into. We thought we were going into a small restaurant but once you through the small courtyard and go inside... read more

How nice to be offered something different from GF pasta! The waiting staff were patient and efficient, Mr Pino was helpful in helping us choose our dinner and the atmosphere was perfect. My sea bass was perfectly cooked although i would not have the grilled vegetables again. My husband had the full 3 courses and finished the lot. He also... More

This restaurant has stayed in our hearts since September 2001...it was 9/11 and we were not able to fly home. This became our home away from home and we took refuge in delicious wines and pizza and the warmth of the owner. We went every night and they gave us a lovely hand painted plate and pitcher when we left.... More

An excellent find. The atmophere was great - nice mix of Italians and other tourists. The menu was interesting and impressive. Then the owner came over to make som esuggestions, many of which we took and didn't regret. The only problem was the anti pasto just had too much seafood. They brought 2 plates, so we asked if they could... More

Another of many very good restaurants in Venice. A beautiful setting way into the alleys of Venice. Friendly and attentive service from the owner and staff, Servings were paced nicely, My wife was very happy with her pasta. My Frito Misto di Mare was a little greasy, although the seafood was very fresh and tasty. We would return and we... More

Traditional Italian food, done well. The sardines in oil was outstanding. The cuttlefish in ink was fresh and tender. We also had a cold meat platter, pizza, veal in wine, liver, and three different types of pasta, all were delicious and as good as any we have tasted. The fixed price menus were good value. I would happily return to... More

The 'new' Antica is now an established part of Venetian dining. One sits and looks at walls that hold hundreds of years of history - the canal meanders past as it has done since strong and brave men dug it and built the bridge that touches one corner of the restaurant. The warmth that greets you as you enter the... More

We first went for lunch one day when we were in the mood for pizza. We were surprised by the aperitifs on the house and also had a good bottle of inexpensive wine with our pizzas. We decided to go back for dinner and had another enjoyable experience. The food was very good and there was a lot of it!... More

We had a fabulous dinner recommendation by our hotel concierge two nights ago. We tried our luck again with a different concierge last night. This place was highly recommended by the hotel concierge who kindly made a reservation for us. Well, unfortunately, we were let down this time. We were greeted by a friendly maitre d (owner?) at the door.... More

Like other reviewers, we went back to the Antica Sacrestia without even checking the reviews, on the foolish assumption that such a reliable old standby could only be good. Indeed two Venetian friends recommended it for that very reason. What a disappointment. The prices have skyrocketed since the move, and the new, kitschy art on the walls is no consolation.... More
