Condescending family (except father) and staff, food was definitely over rated. Service level... 0.5 out of 100. 0.5 is being generous. Irritating because other places deserve our hard earned money. Went to Da Enzo's bar @ S.Elena, which was 100% better in food and service. It was also lovely to come across Tango (I think) dancing from the locals enjoying... More

The outside tables here looked inviting as we wandered around Sant'Elena. so we returned for lunch. There was a large group already eating, so we did not expect immediate service, but in the end we had to flag down an unwilling waitress in spite of many empty tables. It took ages to get drinks and food, and the quality of... More

I just totally second the review left before mine. This restaurant used to be my favourite for years, in a quiet, authentic part of Venice. When my sister and brother-in-law visited Venice for the first time, I couldn't miss the opportunity to show them one of my favourite spot for fresh sea food. What a disappointment, the food quality considerably... More

This was one of our favourite restaurants for the previous seven years we have visited. This year (2013) - a marked drop in food quality and service - the pleasant young lady waitress was the only one trying.

I went with a Venetian friend before a football match, we had fritto misto, salad & spinach as the sides dishes, followed by one chocolate cake in two, we couldn't have managed two! All accompanied with local white wine & water. The place was full of locals enjoying a Sunday lunch. Great meal followed by a win for the local... More

This restaurant was five minutes walk from my hotel (Sant' Elena) and since it rained a great deal during my stay I went there on my first night. The food was good and I went back on the second night. It is a small local restaurant and the food is not fancy, just straightforward and well prepared. If you have... More

We spent a week in Venice. Usually caught lunch on the fly, but on a day when we were using the vaporetti to give ourselves a self-guided tour of the Lagoon, we made a stop at S. Elena. We asked a green grocer to tell us about restaurants, and we selected Al Diporto. Five minute walk from the S. Elena... More
