Went here with my wife while in Venice & liked it so much that we went back a second time. The first night there was a band playing which really made for a great atmosphere out in the garden, which is right beside the canal. We both had steak for mains on the first night & the wife had it... More

I have spent about 5 months working in Venice, and understand that the city can feel besieged by tourists and the toll that this takes on people that live and work here. Unfortunately, this was by far the rudest waiter I have ever encountered, anywhere. I had family visiting and brought them there because it has a lovely garden, and... More

I, like others, am a little surprised at the bad reviews. This was definitely our best meal in Venice. The beef carpaccio was excellent. The pasta bolognese was cooked to perfection, al dente and the right amount of sauce. We then proceeded to have one of the best steaks we have ever had (and we're from Chicago and think Chicago...

We visited this place as it looked authentic and was right next to the canal. We went in and studied the menu for a bit. We decided on what we wanted and called the main waiter. My husband ordered the ravioli. I asked for the roast chicken and the waiter just said "NO" very firmly. No reason given. He said... More

This is a charming restaurant and a pleasant change from most of the 'tourist traps' on this stretch of the main thoroughfare from the station towards St Marks Square. The service and atmosphere was good as was the food. Indeed, the tiramisu was the best we have ever tasted in the city of its birth. The price was a little... More

We had a very nice meal here on a Sunday evening as Pontini (our first choice) was closed. We had a couple of pastas then shared the beef tagliata. The cuttlefish ink spaghetti and the bolognese were both excellent with delicious fresh pasta. The house white and red wines were both notably good. The pastas were quite big so the... More

Very good restaurant! Charming setting as well! Average price for Venice but worth it compared to some of the scams out there. The pumpkin and ricotta ravioli is a must!!! Would go again!

Alla Palazzina is a very nice local restaurant with a terrace almost over a canal -enjoyable on a warm sunny day. Food is very well prepared with delicate touches and very tasteful! I recommend it!
