Very nice restaurant with great food and wine. It was nice to experience such a nice establishment with many locals dining out and celebrating. The food was plentiful and tasty holding true to seasonality and locally sourced ingredients. The berry liquor at the end our meal was a wonderful treat and something we did not expect. Great value compared to... More

Sadly Venice is full of these places with managers making an effort to rip off tourists knowing that most will never return. As a non-Italian speaking business traveller often going to Venice sadly this also hits me on occasions. Even as the food is quite ok, the osteria will go to great lengths to squeeze every last euro penny out... More

Osteria 1518 is what makes Venice truly Italian - delicious food, intimate setting, and genuinely familial. My wife and I didn't have plans for New Years in Venice and stopped by this restaurant as it was opening at 7pm. The owner Lolo said his restaurant was completely booked for the night but that he could fit us in. The restaurant... More

We went to Osteria 1518 in September, based on a recommendation from our hotel. The food was fantastic! Lolo is very warm, friendly, and funny. If you can't decide, let him pick a dish for you. He'll choose a good wine, too. He's so good at what he does, he'll guarantee that you like what you get. How can you... More

A person at the Hilton recommended this place. I asked the waitress if the shrimp were fresh and the next thing I knew the chef came out and asked me if I would like to clean my own, which I replied Yes ( since I worked on a shrimp boat during my youth)! He then took me back to the... More

We stumbled upon the Osteria 1518 while strolling around before our cruise was set to sail. A bit off the beaten path but well worth finding. We only had a light snack but it was very good and presentation was lovely. The service excellent and hospitable and when you toss in the historical factors it was an excellent last meal... More

Osteria 1518 offers excellent, food and an incredibly warm and inviting atmosphere at a reasonable price. The proprietor, Lolo is charming and friendly and genuinely interested in seeing that his customers enjoy their meals.

Under new management the restaurant is a very warm and cute space. There are a few outdoor spaces where you can eat but we preferred the indoor space. The seafood is excellent and many different varieties were on offer. We ate many courses and everything from the beginning to the end was excellent. The wines we tried were also wonderful... More

Open for 4 months under its new management this small but charming restaurant near the San Basilio vaporetto stop is run by Lolo who is part of the event: he fills a room with chram and wit, and great suggestions. He formerly ran a competitor restaurant which was excellent, a member of a local chain of Venetian restaurants that are... More
