We ordered calamari and mixed fried fish with polenta. It was not freshly cooked. Old & fairly dried out. We stopped at Gislon late in the evening, about 22:00, so I guess we should've known better.

Who said food in Venice is expensive and touristy? This little restaurant can prove that wrong. We went during lunch hour and it was indeed popular with locals and tourists, not so easy to find a seat. If you don't like eating at the bar or at the crowed tables on the ground floor, you can go up to the... More

This place was recommended to us by our AirBnB host and we totally loved it here. With 9 of us in the party we were spread out along the windows, but that was just fine for us. All of the food was amazing -- the spaghetti vongole and nero di seppia were superb. The price was very good as well!

I re-discovered this place by instinct after a gap of thirty years! It was totally unchanged. You can order antipasti that are visible under the counter, or a cooked dish that comes out from the kitchen. They give you a placemat and cutlery to eat right on the counter. Or, if you're lucky, you can find your own table. It... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor and were very pleased. It is as the reviews say, but if you are unsure the staff will spend time helping and advising. We had Lasagne and sea food spaghetti with the house wine which was excellent value and even managed to sit at a table. We then went back the following lunchtime... More

A hole in the wall, but great food. I couldn't decide what I wanted so I asked for a selection at the counter and they happily obliged. Get a selection plus a glass of biano for 17€.

We were told to go here for our last lunch in Venice by some local ladies in a wine shop. It was awesome. You order at the counter and they get your food. A few barstools about the counter but otherwise people stood outside eating. The fried mozzarella and ham was delicious as was the Panini. Busy place but the... More

This lace was right outside our window. The smells coming from it woke us up every day as did the locals chattering away early in the morning. This place is very tasty and the service us good. Order at the counter, then take it to your table. Eating upstairs will cost you more as it is table service. Bathrooms available... More

We walked past this place several times, thinking it was a liquor store, before we stopped in for lunch. Good decision, as this was the most reasonably priced eating establishment we saw in Venice, that's why the local seem to swarm here. There are just a few barstools and 4-5 small tables, with no table service. You just go to... More

Bypass all of the touts in the adjoining square and hustle in to grab a seat at this ristorante in Venezia. Authentic local seafood dishes without the hefty tourist price tag. The freshest of Calamari and other delicious offerings at very reasonable euro prices. Couple this with a local vino and you know you are miles ahead of the pack.... More
