This restaurant has a fabulous feel about it, the courtyard blends seemlessly with the inside so you hardly know when you leave one for the other. We started with Seafood spaghetti and linguine with shrimp, both tasted excellent, far exceeding any Italian restaurant we've been in back home, but the portion was rather large - at home we'd have been...

Having spent lots of time in Venice - at least twenty visits - this remains a truly unique restaurant. Antica Sacrestia is hugely evocative - and it is a beautiful setting. The food is delicious - it is carefully prepared to perfection - and the service is always excellent! Nothing disappoints here - in fact, it all lives up to... More

What a delightful treat. Lovely luncheon - great food and friendly courteous service. Away from the crowds in a fairy tale setting . A chance to experience the real Italy. Grazie!

We enjoyed a dinner sitting in the courtyard last week and went to this restaurant based on Rick Steves's recommendation. Only the owner speaks English and one must await him to give your order or pay the bill so if he is busy, one must wait… The food was good and tasty and served quickly. When we asked for vegetables... More

Very good resturante. Speaks English and French. Very good food where the children can have a pizza if they wish and adults another dish. The service is fantastic and with nice surprises. A place where for once you don't feel like you are being done.

Beautiful place tucked away from the busy streets, we just stumbled upon it. Small outdoor area, spacious place indoors, open windows make it as cool as outdoors. Pleasant service, efficient, nice and not bothersome. Wine recommendation by the patron worked, though restaurants in Venice generally take high prices for good wine. Turbot was baked to perfection. Bold tastes, but they... More

This restaurant might be a bit difficult to find because the location changed and the old restaurant has a closed sign, but you need to follow the arrows and you will find the restaurant after a few narrow streets. Although the place is just a stone throw from San Marco, it is a small oasis in the tourist streams. There... More

On our last day in Venice we tracked down this lovely restaurant away from all the crowds and tourists of Venice. We were in for lunch early based on Italian standards at about Noon. We were a little concerned as were were the only ones in the restaurant. We started with the owners? recommendation of fried scampi and calamari, it... More

The restaurant is located in a small street, and a bit difficult to find but it was really worth the searching :) we had a seat and got a free Aperol Spritz, on the house they said! We choose a tourist menu for €24 per person. The starter was a lasagne or a vegetable soup. Both were really good &... More

Our small family of 3 ate in Antica Sacrestia on Thursday evening last. We had initially discovered this establishment as a trattoria some 50 m around the corner in 2004 and had eaten there almost every evening of our two week holiday in Venice and again when we returned in 2008. Then it was an atmospheric wonderful place to enjoy... More
