Eventually found this spot and boy am I glad we did. Had a lovely dinner' with a charming waitress (her lipstick perfectly matched her top, that impressed me). Food was good, fish tasted fresh, fried seafood was excellent. Pacing (which we've found to be challenging as impatient Americans) was great. House wine not great but there were several options by...

If you want to experience Venice off the main tourist grid, this is a great place to go. The food is excellent, the atmosphere relaxed and unpretentious, but you can tell there is a local crowd there that really enjoys eating at this restaurant. We went here at the recommendation of our B&B, La Palazzina Veneziana, and it is an... More

I can't judge the food since i didn't taste it, but even if i've booked a table A LONG TIME before the dinner and i've arrived in the restaurant at time they told me that my table was already taken. Inacceptable. They are amateurs to say the least, incompetents to be more precise andh rude since they didn't tried to... More

We ate at this little restaurant twice because of the tasty appetizers and food, and the friendliness of the staff. Dishes are very local but the manager and staff speak English. It was authentic rather than a tourist trap.

Had a great dinner here with my husband on our first night in Venice. Really friendly staff and quaint little courtyard dining area. We shared a starter which was lovely and then I had a perfect dish of spaghetti vongole and my husband had the squid ink spaghetti which he also enjoyed. We then shared a plate oif fritto misto...

We enjoyed terrific cicchetti here, including sardines with onions and raisins. Really delicious. The décor isn't amazing, but the service was good and food wonderful.

This was just a few minutes walk from our hotel, so we made a special effort to find it on our first night, which was a little tricky because the TripAdvisor map took us about 50m away, this is not far in most cities but it's an issue in Venice, keep an eye out for the sign about 8ft up... More

This was the only restaurant recommended by our host @ La Palazzina Veneziana, so we went for a try. We nearly gave up, as we need to walk through a very dark lane to reach this. But glad we make it. The food was heavenly. Worth every penny. My child finished a full plate of pasta on his own, a... More
