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

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...
