GREAT LITTLE FIND

We had a recommendation to try a Pizza place around the corner, but it was closed so stumbled across this one by accident, but so glad we did. Sat outside in the square on a balmy evening.

In a quiet square just a few minutes from the Riva di Biasio vaporetto stop, this restaurant has lots of tables outside as well as an indoor area which we especially liked. We dined here repeatedly during a week's visit to Venice; our most memorable meal consisting of antipasto di sarde al saor followed by tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms. They... More

One little detail, both managment and kitchen at Al Canton dei Artisti are Chinese, definitely not Italian. I guess this explains why they have no trouble serving canned mushrooms or keeping a dog in the kitchen. While eating we had live entertainment with a fight between a guest and the waiter with the former claiming he was misled into ordering... More

On our way to the San Stae we crossed the Campo Nazario Sauro. It was at lunch time and because the church was not open jet we decided to wait and have lunch at Al Canton Dei Artisti. The food was good and you pay a moderate price. The Campo has lots of space to do other things and it... More

Rather formal but very nice restaurant. Serves good quality food for a reasonable price. Main attraction in my opinion is the very nice outside dining area on the nice and quiet square. Quality of the surroundings definitely improves the overall experience.

Atmosphere was splendid, a nice evening meal outside, and a wonderful waiter named "Sorry" who made the evening perfect. Highly recommend this as the place to get away from the crazy crowds in Venice.

We stumbled on this place our first evening in Venice. The waiter came up to us but not with the usual pressure. We ate a delicious meal. And went there 5days in a row. The waiter 'Sorry' and 'his excuse-me' are very pleasant to watch. They work with a smile! It's also very child-friendly. Another positive thing is that the... More

After wandering around Venice, this looked as good as anyplace to stop and eat, and as always I checked for a TripAdvisor sign on the door. I saw one, but did not have internet to check it, next time I definitely will , as I was truly disappointed. Three of us ordered different things, none of them were good. Salty,... More

From the minute we browsed the menu outside deciding to sit or not, we were both invited to take a table (without the usual pressure) and entertained. A free glass of of wine while we waited, a wonderful meal, a quiet ambience in the piazza and a very enjoyable waiter. His name is "Sorry" but we have absolutely no regrets... More

we decided to have something other than pizza for our last meal and this was lovely. We sat outside under large shades. The waiter (Sorry) was slightly bonkers but made us laugh. He was keen for us to have expensive wine but we were happy with the house white. He recommended the Seafood Spaghetti which was great. The Bruschetta was... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
