Good Food, Limited Menu and Slow Service

We ate here on our first evening. The menu is limited but this is fine with me as it could be sign that the food is freshly made, and that proved to be the case. The menu seems to change every day but gets posted outside the restaurant early so if your passing you can check what the choice that... read more

Had a birthday dinner there with my family of five. Everything was excellent except for the service, which I normally would overlook but the restaurant was not overly crowded. Pasta, fish, meat, all superb. No an overly creative menu, but 4 out of 5 on all accounts.

My wife and i were staying, up the canal, and it was a pretty rainy first day in venice when we decided to eat at Ristorante Ribot. It was one of the few well ranked restaurants near our hotel by the piazzale di roma. We had a very nice meal here and thought that it seemed priced right for what... More

Good atmosphere - courtyard is pleasant. Food was good all around; good quantities and good quality. Seabass was the fresh catch and prepared whole fish...had to be careful of bones - only downer - but flavor was very good.

We opted to dine here due to the good reviews and location. The service is very slow and the bread was stale. However, the Venetian mixed appetiser was tasty with a good selection of fish. My partner and I ended up swapping our main courses as the sea bream was too salty for him, though I thoroughly enjoyed it, and... More

After being attracted to Ribot by tripadvisor reviews, we were quite underwhelmed. Whilst the food was good, it wasn't fantastic and not worthy of the price tag which is higher than average in this area. I had scallops three ways (which appeared to be 3 different dressings) and had a very similar dish round the corner for 5euros less and... More

We happened on this because we were staying nearby to exit Venice via the airport. Previous visits to Venice have kept us close to San Marco district, but a boutique hotel and this restaurant made for a pleasant exit from this romantic city. Ristorante Ribot is an authentically Italian spot, attractively set in a garden environment. It is a little... More

This restaurant is like a hidden gem, off the beaten tracks of touristy Venice. We loved everything about it. The staff were charming and the food extremely good. At first we had the mixed fish appetizer plate, which was huge and with a large variety of fish and sea food, and the st jacques , which were delicious. The second... More

While walking along a canal in Venice, Italy, we came across this restaurant, which had four Michelin Stars posted in its front window for the years 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. We subsequently made a booking for dinner for two couples on 27 May 2015. When we showed up, we were among the first customers, and selected a nice table... More

Good service, but we thought the meal was a bit small for the price, especially when it is out of the tourist main stream.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
