Venetian Seafood

Light room, ambiance only okay, but service and food was very good. The lobster appetizer was particularly good. There were more people speaking Italian here than most places we went, so we liked that.

We visited here 31st July. Great service and a great meal. The waiters were very good and took the time to explain the tasting menu we opted for. Will definitely visit again

This was our last meal in Italy, so it had to hold up to high expectations, and it passed with flying colors. The food was spectacular. I went with my family of 6 and everyone thought their meal was superb. The place is a little hard to find, but once you get there you will not be disappointed. Worth the... More

This was the best restaurant we ate at in Venice. It is hard to find, and you have to cross a byzantine collection of tiny streets, but it was well worth it. The shrimps were among the freshest I have ever eaten. The appetizers were all amazing. The duck was fantastic. The atmosphere is quiet and quaint. You should make... More

This was the highlight of our Venice weekend. We had researched all of the one-star restaurants in Venice and decided to commence our anniversary weekend by eating here. Italy is beautiful but logistics always take longer then planned so we were convinced that we had lost our lunch reservations. Not only did they change our reservation on no notice- they... More

Poor food quality and when reported to a senior waiter was rejected without any apology. The staff overall were portentous and prompus and they mistook this behaviour for good service. Overall the restaurant does not deliver value for money as the food lacks real flair and across Venice there are many better much cheaper dinning opportunities. All in all, save... More

Restaurant is very cozy, confortable, well arranged but a bit dark. Looking towars one of the canal, namely Rio de le to Torre. Only one table may have a chance looking out. We made a reservation quite a long time ago before going to Venice. The date of our dinner was our 35th wedding anniversary night.Wine, dishes, food and ambiance... More

We reserved well in advance and got an amazing table overlooking the canal. Food was great, a little pricey but it matched the service and quality of food. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a special dining experience while in Venice.

The atmosphere is misleading. Looks nice and high-class, fancy table settings, dress code is suggested, but don't bother because the table next to you will have customers wearing shorts. Order the seafood and you might be impressed, I unfortunately ordered the veal and it looked like chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes- and that's how it tasted. I also had... 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.
