We travel...we search...we are often disappointed....and then again...sometimes things are just lovely....Promessi Sposi hit the spot for us in what can often be a Venice far from the one we would like to dream of...over-priced, low culinary interest/quality and high prices.

We have eaten here at least 5 times before and it has always been good - and have reviewed it as such. This visit was disappointing. Very disappointing. The place was not full. Poor, inattentive and slow service. Fried fish not as fresh as usual. Didn't bother to stay for coffee & grappa. Socks need pulling up here. On tonight's... More

Recommended as a "not touristic" restaurant by our hoteliers at Hotel San Salvador and this turned out to be an EXCELLENT recommendation. Get the Ulmon Venice iPhone app (free!) and even if you have no wifi or cell access it'll somehow tell you right where you are and what direction you're moving in just like Google Maps. Really helpful for... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this charming little restaurant! It seemed to be more locals than tourists. I had a wonderful mixed platter of fried (of course very fresh) seafood. My husband had the liver and he quite liked the way it was prepared. We will definitely return to this little gem of a Venice restaurant! Thank you and... More

The food was very good for a group of five of us. The clever waiter helped us pick our dishes. He joked a lot with us and made us feel at home. One of our best meals on our trip. We loved the razor clams appetizer. Sea bass very good. Steak very good. Pasta in cuttlefish ink excellent but we... More

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
