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

We had a local venetian recommend this place so I was shocked when it ended the way it did. Venice is known for their seafood so we ordered the seafood risotto. It tasted like campbell's chicken soup with a few shrimp and calamari added. We were graceful about it but they asked and we admitted it was "ok." Honestly, it... More

I am back in Venice after 4 years and sought out Antica Sacrestia again. What makes this restaurant special is it's owner Pino, the delicious authentic Venetian food and ambiance of the restaurant in its new location. Pino did it again! The restaurant, in its new location is outstanding! He painstakingly renovated, for a year, an old glass shop into... More

I've often said that you can't get a bad meal in Italy -- I was wrong. We tried it because it was nearby, my wife said it looked "cute" and the reviews were pretty good. Mediocre food and poor service. there are better places close by (such as Osteria Oliva Nera and Luna Sentada).

The reviews for this restaurant were not wrong. Everything was as promised free drink on arrival and free gift at the end. We had the menu of the day and it was great value, three courses of very nice food. Wine was very expensive so was the beer; bottle of aqua mineralé had to suffice. Service was good despite a...

My travel companion and I ate here last week as our last dinner before returning home to the States. It was by far the best meal we had on our ten day trip. The owner, Joseph, could not have been kinder and more helpful in assisting us with our choices. We had a special antipasti plate - one item was... More

Arrived in Venice this afternoon & started to check out restaurants for my group next May. Came across Ristorante Antica Sacrestia on a side alley not far from San Marco. It's located in a old Venetian osteria. As you walk into a court yard enclosed by merlined walls you have a choice to dine in this open air section or... More

I spent the weekend in Venice in late September. After having dinner here on the first night I proceeded to have all my meals here. 4 in total, the food really is that good. This gave me the chance to try the fish, the steak, the pizza and the pasta and a few deserts of course. Simply I couldnt tell... More

We booked to eat at 8.00pm and were disappointed to see that it was empty but within half an hour the place was full and you could see that a lot of locals were eating here which is always a good sign. Very friendly staff and lovely food.

This was our last honeymoon meal in Venice. Off on a side street. Great outdoor seating and free cookies at end of the meal. Worth the money. I had seafood soup and my husband had a great pizza.
