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

The seafood was delicious and my younger son who is not much if a seafood fan loved the spaghetti. The atmosphere was lovely and quiet.

Really helpful staff and a great selection of antipasti. Top class food at reasonable prices. Would have loved to go back and try the cicchetti at the bar.

We had a table outside in the garden. A very authentic ambiance. The water was friendly and efficient. We shared a squid antipasti and then a sea bass. Both wonderful. The wine list was good with reasonable prices. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This place came recommended to us by our hotel. As the previous reviews said, it seems like a place that is popular with the locals. We enjoyed this restaurant for dinner and came back the next evening to eat tapas and drink wine standing at the bar. The bar can get crowded and the service can be a little slow,... More

We found out about this restaurant because it was recommended by our landlord. It is practically hidden from the tourists although the owners are very friendly towards them. We made a reservation (it would have been impossible to find a table for eight in the back garden otherwise!) and when we got there we saw many people (they seemed locals)... More

Our hotel recommended the hotel so I checked the reviews before reserving. We were seated in the outdoor area which initially was lovely as a very warm evening, however the outdoor seating soon became very uncomfortable. As the menu is in Italian the staff were very helpful in translating. We ordered raw scampi and anti pasto misto de pesce. Unfortunately... More

I am Italian and my girlfriend is Australian. We had lunch in this amazing osteria, which exceeded our expectations by far. This is the place you want to have lunch or dinner in Venice, and it is a preferred choice of many locals too. You will not find tourists here, and the menu is in Italian only ( although they...

Based on previous reviews I was expecting more. It is a small, very relaxed Osteria on a side street in Cannaregio. There is small garden patio outside which has a nice atmosphere. The inside is noisy and plain. Servers wear jeans and at times seemed too laid back. There were two fresh fish options, we chose the grilled sea bream.... More
