For our last evening we looked for something close at hand, and tried this restaurant with a very ordinary outside - but how deceiving! The garden through the alley is big enough for about forty people! We had the menu de journal three courses, except we did not last the full three. Don't go here with less than your A... More

While we understand that you will not get top top service in Venice as easy as you should, this place was hard to be at. First it took a while (and I mean really a while to get water on the table) The server who was responsible for us, was fighting the mosquitos so she really was focused on solving... More

A cozy ambient in a backyard terrace. The food looks incredible and tastes even better. One can tell that it is carefully and freshly made. The service is very good. It's "mandatory" to finish the meal with the chocolate cake with mascarpone.

It was very obvious that their first priority is loco people and they think it is ok how bad they treat tourists. While loco people received friendly and quick service, we, not only us but also other tourists, needed to wait for a lot of time to order foods and dishes. A couple next to our table had to wait...

We had a great lunch of grilled calamari with polenta and a Margarita pizza. A liter a house vino was excellent and the prices were more than reasonable. A bit of a walk from San Marcos piazza, but worth the trip. Relaxing private garden with plenty of shade.

This is one place that you must try while in venice. I has a great choice of food, between classic venetian dishes while also including more traditional dishes seen in the majoroty of restaurants. I went with the fillet of beef which i cannot praise any more highly. Outstanding. My girlfriend tried a new dish, gnocci (type of potato) in... More

There were 3 reasons that meant we absolutely HAD to try out Alla Ferrata. Firstly, I had starred it after reading about it on TripAdvisor. Secondly, the owner of the apartment we stayed in singled it out as authentic Venetian food at good prices. Thirdly, it was a 3 minute walk from our apartment. We were in Venice for 2... More

We went to Trattoria All Ferrata after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! What a fantastic place. To the rear of the restaurant is a large courtyard which reminded me of the Hitchcock film Rear Window. Lots of little windows all around with lights blinking on and off and people going about their business. It's a... More

Alla Ferrata was only steps from the apartment we rented in Venice, and wonderful to have so close. We were 7 (3 teenagers) and mainly ordered from touristica menu, along with bottles of housecred and white. The Zuppe de Pesce was the best I have ever had. Bacala was very good too. My daugter ordered sea bass (she is our... More

We were there 3 times! Food is absolutely amazing, very tasty! We tried different dishes every time and everything was fantastic! We sat in the garden inside, very quiet place. Waiters were very very friendly! Specially Jacobe and Rodica! The 3rd time we did get a lots of free drinks and antipasti. The atmosphere was really great. And great value... More
