Do you want to eat really excellent Italian food in a romantic canal-side setting away from the mayhem and madness of tourist Venice? If so,then this is the place for you. Complimentary Bellinis kicked off the evening that just seemed to get better and better. For starters,my family of four shared an unbelievably tasty starter of a Mixed Fish Platter... More

I have visited this restaurant the last two times I was in Venece. It is very easy to reach while being safely away from the tourist traps. It feels like being in a much calmer an authentic Venece. The same can be said about the food, the fish in particular. A lovely place to visit and revisit.

This restaurant is a gem. Take the Giardini stop and follow the locals who turn right down the canal. This charming mother-and-daughter operation starts with refreshing extras before you order: a glass of chilled juice, a cheese and bread hors d'oeuvres. We sat on the water; the environment was tranquil. We ordered a great wine (Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio). I... More

Thank heavens for Trip Advisor! Having walked the second of J G Links' walks in 'Venice for Pleasure' we found ourselves at the Biennale at lunch time and were drawn by TA to this perfect little restaurant beside a quiet canal in a strictly residential district. Although it was after one there were no diners and the proprietress was sitting... More

Came upon this restaurant by accident. The young lady that met us was pleasant and very helpful. Sitting in the open air we enjoyed plates of delicious sea food pasta which was a cut above what we had experienced in the centre of Venice. Well worth a visit. M. Ellis Wales

Tucked away on the Guiseppe canal, right next to the Biennale, 'da Gino' is really one of the best restaurants in Venice where the Quality/Price ratio is just right. Mara and her sister give you a very warm welcome. When the weather is good you can sit outside. The decoration inside is very pleasing. Whether you choose fish or meat... More

We had a lovely lunch here with a large group of friends during our recent visit to Venice. The owner was very accommodating and the food was terrific -- great seafood, both in the bollito misto and in the risotto di go, a Venetian specialty made with local fish that I had never had before. Recommended.
