We had a fabulous meal at L'Orto dei Mori, a classy little restaurant tucked away in the tranquil Cannaregio sestiere, where the owner and his staff made us feel very welcome. The house wine - a lovely Montepulciano - was great value and the food was simply delicious. We enjoyed the scallops, aubergine timbale and duck ragout in particular. We... More

We went to this restaurant with the idea of sampling some of the more traditional Venetian dishes. After trying the cuttlefish in black ink and the veal liver and onions , I can say that it was well worth our time. The waiter was very helpful with the wine selection and the remaining staff attentive to our needs. We would... More

Venice is as charming as a city can be, and this restaurant makes a great addition to it. It is located far from the touristic area, which is always a plus when looking for good food and at a reasonable price. I would recommend their Duck Ragout pasta as well as carpaccio. Their house red wine is amazing and at... More

The waitress was absolutely foul, she was ill mannered and inattentive. The food was average, although the chef couldn't do enough to try and please his customers. Overall, an average night, there are plenty of other places in Venice I would rather go first!

We ate lunch here on our final day in Venice. If we had found it earlier, I would have gone every night. Authentic atmosphere, attention to details made it a wonderful meal.

Romantic, hidden restaurant on a tiny canal in the Cannaregio neighborhood. Food was traditional Italian but prepared with a modern twist. Service was great. The scallop appetizer was amazing.

We hadn't planned lunch because we had a big dinner coming but we happened on this lovely little osteria on a pretty little square and thought we might have just a little something. A tasty salad of artichokes, walnuts, rocket and pecorino followed by 2 hearty pastas of duck with cinnamon and sausage with Gorgonzola. Our host allowed us to... More

My husband and I were in Venice this February for our honeymoon.. since it isn't the most touristy time of the year, it was PERFECT in terms of scanty crowds and the Spring was just setting in.. we stayed at a hotel in L'Orto, and hence were looking for a good restaurant close by that evening. It was recommended to... More

Not the cheapest meal, but good food in Venice doesn't come cheap anywhere. Recommended by our B&B proprietor, we visited for dinner, and enjoyed it so much we went back a second night. Waiters very knowledgeable on the menu and wines, and not trying to sell over your budget. The sardine starter and lamb main course were among the best... More

Firstly, I did not experience the bad service as intimated by the last reviewer. The restaurant was booked on reccomendation by our hotel and we had a reservation, which was required for a Sat night (especially it being first night of the carnival). The restuarant has 2 evening seating times. Firstly between 7 and 9pm and then from 9:30pm onwards.... More
