We visited restaurant Ribot Christmas Eve and had their special christmas menu. The pureed cod was absolutely amazing and so was the Prosecco. The food was beautifully served and prepared with attention to every detail. The sea bass ravioli was the best I've ever tried. We are generally not great fans of Italian christmas cake, which was the set dessert,... More

The restaurant looked good from the outside, and the menu enticing. The dining room and service were OK. Unfortunately, the food I ate was not up to the mark. The antipasto was polenta with herring. This must be the only place in Venice that serves precooked, tasteless polenta! Then I had pasta with duck (a Venetian specilaty), which was Ok... More

An excellent experience start to finish. Server was pleasant, attentive, informative and professional. The cod was delicious as well as the pasta and meat dish we ordered. The restaurant is quaint and has a water view as well as a garden. Although we saw the garden it wasn't open possibly due to the weather. I HIGHLY recommend Ribot if you're... More

15 minutes form San Marco Square lies the culinary gem that is Ribot. It's worth the walk. The Ribot experience is phenomenal. The food is first rate (Michelin Rated), affordable, and paired with wine expertly by the waiters. And for the quality, the food is quite reasonably priced. Not cheap, but we were expecting to pay almost twice what we... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant so we stopped in for dinner on our last night in Venice. The menu is varied and includes a number of what the waiter described to us as traditional Venetian dishes. We tried the sardines in a sour sauce, bacala (salted cod) with polenta and liver and onions. Unique tastes that we enjoyed but are... More

This place offers outstanding value for money and some amazing dishes to go along too. We ordered a seafood platter which was truly amazing. This place definitely deserves the Michelin standing it has got. If I were to visit Venice I again I would definitely come to Ribot again.

This is a mid to higher price restaurant. All of the food that was served was nicely presented and very flavoursome; sadly our memory will be of the poor service . We waited an hour and a quarter between our starter and main course and had to ask three times where our food was to be told each time it... More

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.
