Lucky Find

Tucked away in a corner away from the main tourist attractions, this restaurant was a good find. Food and service was good and being able to sit outside on a fine evening was gorgeous.

Unforgettable dinner. Great restaurant, wonderful sea food and pasta and good service. They sat us on the small balcony perched over the canal. A little way away from the main tourist/city areas but definitely worth the trip.

I'm surprised to read any negative reviews here. The food at Da Fiore is exceptionally good and the service is excellent. This was our second visit, and the only downside to eating here continues to be the risk of eating too much of a good thing. We were warmly greeted by name as we entered through the bar, and we...

Da Fiore is hard to find - first time, we made the mistake of believing Google and Apple maps - but worth the hunt and provides an array of classic dishes executed beautifully with enough of a twist to be memorable. They have a few quirky touches that would have confused if we had not been dining with friends. Do... More

We chose this restaurant for our anniversary meal and booked direct with them. They were helpful in the run up to our visit and absolutely lovely when we arrived. We travelled by water taxi which is ridiculously expensive at €60 Euros each way for a 10 min journey, but absolutely the best way to arrive. The restaurant met us at... More

Me and my girlfriend were living few blocks away. After 10 years I finally had the money to invite her da Fiore which is a legend in Venice. 1 Michelin Star. No need to say that the food was more than excellent. Same as the service. The menu given to my girlfriend didn't have prices on it. Mine did! Of... More

This place came recommended by a friend and also by our hotel concierge, so we booked a reservation (pretty much required). Wonderful & intimate place right on a canal. We were a few minutes early, so they offered us complimentary prosecco at the bar while we waited for our table. The food was excellent, and as this was our

I rarely write bad reviews, but I feel I have an obligation to let future guests know our experience and how bitterly it contrasts with any other michelin starred restaurant we've dined at. As another reviewer has pointed out, beware google & apple maps which send you to different locations both false, whether you use the name of the restaurant... More

We asked for a Valpolicella Ripasso and we ended up getting a non-Valpolicella wine, which had to have cost a lot less than the one we asked for, yet he charged us a lot more. The owner is also pushy - I wanted an item on the menu and he said no - you want something fish instead (you're in... More

This restaurant has many rave reviews and having tried two other Michelin restaurants this by way of comparison was a huge disappointment. It is a tiny low ceiling restaurant in the middle of nowhere special with cramped tables which some might call charming but wait an hour and it becomes unbelievably hot and sticky. The staff are mainly dressed formally... 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.
