Great lunch!

Osteria da fiore is the only restaurant with one star in the Michelin guide which is not situated in a hotel. The place is comfortable and the staff very friendly. At lunch, the menu costs 50 euros: you get three courses, one glass of excellent wine, mineral water and coffee. I think it is well... read more

When we ate here several years ago, I was disappointed, but I reminded myself then that I had never eaten in Venice before, so maybe I had expectations that were unreasonable. This time, there is no mistake. Bad food is bad food, and surly, unpleasant service is just that, no matter where in the world you're dining. I was the... More

We had the experience that this is a restaurant about to loose a star. While some of the appetizers we shared were what one might expect from so highly rated a restaurant, the meal went downhill from then on. As disappointing as the food was the advice from the wine steward, who acted as if we were bothering him. One... More

We had lunch over holiday weekend and was concerned that it would be very busy and service would be below par. We were also concerned with some negative reviews. However the historical reputation of this place was our main motivation to try it out. Food was excellent. Typical dishes from the venetian tradition( "sarde in saor", "moeche" ) and some... More

Nice little restaurant with one Michelin star set on the side of a small canal. Good service although felt that it was inexcusable that one waiter badly needed some deodorant. Food was good indeed. Menu features nice seafood and a good wine list. Nice interior. Around 100 euros per person, for 2 courses including wine. Unfortunately in my opinion, it... More

Went to da fiore for our anniversary lunch. The restaurant looks great and the staff are very attentive. The food was very good with the gnocchi being particularly good and the best I had on this visit. Wood recommend for a special occasion.

No doubt, like operas, restaurants have off days. Reading some of the reviews here, at any rate, that's my conclusion. Da Fiore is one of the bets Italian restaurants I've had the pleasure to visit, I have recommended it successfully to friends visiting Venice, and made a point of going back to dine alone on a recent trip. Like many... More

Yum white fish stuffed ravioli in lobster sauce, with added yum, likewise the steamed sea bass, and local soft shell crab, a veritable crab doughnut , crispy on the outside with such a good crabby moment on the inside. This is a good restaurant, allegedly the best in town, I can't confirm that as in spite of trying didn't have... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. We had the tasting menu, and most of it was good (we went for the “surprise” menu where you don’t know what is coming next, the chef choses for you – but you can chose each of your courses if you prefer). Only one course we didn’t enjoy. The service was a bit hit and... More

Very traditional and considered one of the best non-hotel restaurants in Venice. Really good, fantastic meals, very good wines, with a wonderful service. Try the oyster on zambaione sauce as apettizer, exquisite experience!!! Worth to go!!

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.
