Description: Historic environment with frescoes of 700 and a water gate of the original end 500 a few steps from the Rialto Bridge. A cuisine that combines Mediterranean and southern Italy than typical Venetian style. Nel cuore di Venezia, a due passi dal ponte di rialto. Il ristorante e situato in un palazzo del 1400. L'ambiente infatti e decorato da affreschi del 1700 e da una porta d'acqua originale di fine 500. La cucina richiama quella verace partenopea con prodotti di provenienza esclusivamente campana ed un interessante intreccio con il pescato del vicino mercato di rialto e le primizie delle isole lagunari

This is a place to try. Close to the old-fashioned tourist traps next tho the Grand Canal Rialto bridge, this is the complete opposite. Modern, yet stylish, beautiful intimate emplacement, offers great service (very friendly owner/man in charge) and even better food. We had a fresh fish and it was really fresh and very well prepared. Worth every euro spent... More

Had lunch after our Venice tour. Shared Pappardelle pasta with Mushrooms & Clams, Seabass & Swordfish. Glass of Proseco and Tiramisu to finish the meal. All were excellent ! I'll probably never be able to find this place due to the maze of streets and courtyards that are Venice but I leave with a good memory of this meal. I... More

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.

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
