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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
