the perfect idea of a local restaurant

My wife and I had a memorable meal during our short stay in Venice. You can tell from the location and the locals who eat there that this place doesn't try to cater too hard to tourists. The food is very good and authentic and the servers are friendly if you treat them right. I started out with the... read more

We spent a bit of time searching for this osteria because the sign is no longer there and it was closed when we went at lunchtime. We popped in at 7pm to a very busy, bustling place but they managed to squeeze us in with a table for two hours. The waitress was very knowledgable and explained the Italian-only hand... More

Hard to find as they have taken down the sign and wording over the door. Look for the sign for the Hotel Bernadi in the narrow alley and it is more or less opposite. Well worth the effort. Lovely atmosphere, excellent and genuinely helpful service without any condescension. I'm old enough now to accept that I struggle with a handwritten... More

This is a lovely bacaro/osteria serving authentic food to appreciative locals, We had excellent cicheti at the bar including the best octopus salad with very good local wines and also dinner in the restaurant section. Everything was freshly cooked with the best ingredients (seafood, fish). Desserts including the Amaretto semifreddo are scrumptious. The place has lots of atmosphere and is... More

Went there after reading reviews in Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. Hidden place (they didn't have the sign outside anymore) but well worth looking for. I went there for lunch - around 1pm- and it was full. They only have 5 tables. We waited for about 15min at the bar, and had delicious appetizers and red wine. The... More

This restaurant may not have the best spot or most sophisticated service but it does offer good local food made from fresh ingredients, decent wine and friendly service. All good.

Ate here last night. An excellent starter of pasta each followed by a massive plate of fried fish and some good Venetian liver. Definitely recommended although towards the top end of my price comfort zone.

We were looking for somewhere inexpensive but authentic without having to stray too far as it was so cold . We chose this place from reviews on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint. Quite hard to find at first as it's not in a Main Street but even so it was popular and busy even though many other bars &... More

This was our 5th visit to this restaurant and we're pleased to say we still love it as much as ever. The fruit de mer is fantastic and the batter is so light. 3 courses, 1/2 litre of wine, water and expressos came to 90 euro's which is great value fir Venice.
