We had heard a great deal about this restaurant and we had guaranteed a meal with credit card a week in advance. We wish we hadn't: not because of the food but because of the customers. Seating no more than 16-20, we were fine until a family from LA showed up with a baby. Although they insisted in that pushy... More

You cannot ask for a better meal in Venice from this hole in the wall restaurant with very few tables. We had the concierge book this before our arrival so we were fortunate to have gotten in. Everything is fresh, creatively prepared and delicious. And the prices are reasonable too. The service was excellent too. Go very casual as it... More

This was a very special dining experience. We went there on the recommendation of a friend who warned us to book early. There are only 22 seats in the place, which is tucked away in the Castello district, just near Santa Maria Formosa. The food was impeccable, and the wines carefully selected and recommended to go perfectly with the cuisine.... More

I originally found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. My objective was to find a non touristy special place to dine at. The policy of this small almost hidden restaurant is that they require a 50 euro deposit per person to reserve a seat. I was somewhat concerned with this requirement worrying about giving my credit card information over the internet.... More

Best meal in Venice. Each dish was better than the last. Intimate restaurant with impeccable service. So warm and friendly. Truly a wonderful evening. Razor clams were outstanding.

What a treat. Ate at Alle Testiere last night. It's small so reservations are a must and it's difficult to find but it's worth the trouble. I went with my gentleman friend for dinner. After walking in circles until we were a bit late we finally found it. There is a tiny sign written on the street lamp over the... More

We ate here in May on the recommendation of a friend. Super place which served excellent seafood cooked to perfection in an unpretentious fashion. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bill was only slightly more than what we had paid the previous night for some very mundane pasta in a touristy restaurant with indifferent service. We will definitely... More

This is a small place, off the beaten path and very well worth finding. The staff's attitude is that they are preparing food specifically for you and they've done a lot of thinking about what is fresh and available, so they can offer only the best. Their suggestions are clearly intended to improve your experience there and not just upselling... More

We walked right past this restaurant in spite of being warned it was easy to miss. It's worth the effort to seek it out - but make sure you have a reservation. Luca di Vita was a lovely host and the food was fresh from the market and prepared incredibly simply and delicately. This meal was our favorite lunch during... More

This place absolutely rocks. Don't judge this place by its size….it is an absolute gem. The variety and quality of the food is exceptional. We have been going regularly for the past 5 years and every time, we are surprised by the inventiveness and subtlety of the dishes. Wine recommendations are sensational as well and leave a little place for... More
