Having gone to Venice on a foodie trip this was our best meal. The restaurant is small and very Venetian. The staff were friendly and extremely professional. We were treated extremely well and they were happy to discuss in detail anything I wanted to cover on the menu. The same can be said of the wine. A very good list... More

Alle Testiere is our favourite restaurant in Italy. We have been going there every year for several years now. It is absolutely charming. Bruno the chef is a master of method and flavour while Luca is brilliant at wines and has a magnificent collection of Italian wines…. We always go with his suggestions. This will suit epicurean foodies who enjoy... More

There have been lots of reviews of what many consider the best restaurant in Venice. This review is to add another confirmation to that view. Every time we have been lucky enough to visit Venice, we have made reservations to have dinner here. The daily menu is based on what's available through the fish markets or local produce. The wine...

This is not a restaurant of fancy sauces and complicatedness. This is a restaurant of simple preparations and fresh seafood! Essentially they go to the fish market daily - their menu consists of the seafood they get from the market prepared a small variety of ways - the ones I recall - grilled, steamed, pan-fried. Its best to make a... More

This restaurant is supposed to offer the best food in Venice. But the attitude of the small man in charge was extremely rude. Although we had booked a table for two at 9.15p.m. we unfortunately arrived early and was told to came back. When we did after 10 minutes walking around their was tables available but we were again told... More

It is a small place with very nice food service and a cosy atmosphere. A little pricy, but the food was great. It would be better to make areservation before you go, since it isn't the largest restaurant in Venice.

I thought this restaurant was going to be our wow in Venice and it just fell flat. No special sauces or fancy preparations of the food. The food was good, but I just wanted more for the price. If it was a more reasonably priced meal we would've been happier. Just wasn't worth the price tag without all the bells... More

We had a great dinner here in 2011 and visited again last week. The same owner/host was there and he was most helpful throughout the night. All in perfect english unlike our broken italian. Seafood is the focus here (they don't have license to handle meat in their kitchen) and they make a strong effort to source fresh ingredients daily.... More

Booked this as a birthday treat and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant has 2 evening sittings and we went for the 2nd at 21.30. The menu is dependent on the daily catch and the food is fresh and flavoursome. The waiter made an excellent recommendation on the wine to match our choices. As this is a very small restaurant with... More
