L'ambiente infatti e decorato da affreschi del 1700 e da una porta d'acqua originale di fine 500.

We stumbled upon La Porta D'Acqua on our last night's stay in Venice, after walking around asking at various restaurants for what they offered 'senza gluten' (without gluten) - I am a Coeliac and found Italians to be very understanding of the condition. This restaurant immediately made us feel comfortable, talking me through a variety of gluten-free options, including gluten... More

We stopped at La Porta d'Acqua for lunch by chance...and were not disappointed! Staff was very friendly, service was good. My husband want for pizza, which was huge and very tasty. I had the fish ravioli with lemon sauce which were fantastic. It's a bit pricy but the quality is food is just fantastic.

Very pleasant experience on our first night in Venice. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. Being a celiac I found this restaurant as a recommendation for glutenfree food in Venice and was not disappointed! Excellent home made pasta, also glutenfree, glutenfree bread and delicious seafood! Pasta all dente, the seasoning on the light side, focusing on the ingredients and not... More

This was a highlight of our two week trip in Italy. The food was fantastic, and the staff wonderful. Try the eggplant parm appetizer - it is truly terrific!

We were a bit disappointed with Venice restaurants in general until we found this one. Great food and very good service. This was the best dinner we had on our trip to Venice and we were really happy to find it. Portions are good size, the price for that food quality is spot on if you ask me, not the... More

The food was exquisite but it was expensive. Went there on last day in Italy. Waiter is the owner and very good. Outdoor seating. Imaginative, fresh and delicious. Cost $140 with sharing antipasto, prima, secondo and desert and 1 bottle of wine

Wow this place is good. The food is incredible and the staff are so friendly, charming and funny too. Wish we had had desert now. Would recommend in an instant. Nice and near a busy street with shops but just off down a calm side street so dining al fresco is a joy.

We walked past this restaurant by chance and we were instantly drawn in by the hilarious waiter who tried to imitate our Australian accents. He had us laughing from start to finish. He and the other staff members were still very professional and knowledgable. The food was delicious! So much flavour. We struggled to find any pasta as good in... More

Came here based purely on trip-advisor recommendations and we're not disappointed. Our waiter was warm and very funny putting on various English accents for our amusement. Food was good (both on and off the tourist menu), if a little over priced for Italy (but then, this is Venice!). We were serenaded by basing musicians, who we willingly tipped as they... More

We walked by whilst out strolling the streets of Venice and stumbled across this place. It had been issued a Trip Advisor 2014 Certificate of Excellence which sparked our interest but it failed to excite us really. A nice meal but did not provide much more. There are definitely better options in Venice!
