Great food, good value

We were here july 2013 and july 2014. Both times it hAs been excellent. The service can be a little slow, but quite standard for Italy overall. I was mostly excited aboutthe fresh fish, and chef Domineco did not let us down. Just a few seats so it feels personal.

Friendly relaxed service, some dishes excellent others disappointing, Seafood risotto was perfectly cooked and my husband loved his liver Venetian style, but I was disappointed with my sea bass - not as fresh as I would have liked. Interesting live music and decor, worth a visit, but can't give it more than 3 stars

This was our first meal in Venice after traveling 24 hours to get here. MAMMA MIA! I weep at how good it was. We had the Antipasti alla Chef Domenico and it was enough for two of us. A mix of raw and cooked seafood, prepared sublimely and some of the freshest prawns and reed clams I've ever had. The... More

Me and my partner stumbled upon this last week. We ordered two ombre and some fish dishes to eat. We were probably here for an hour and were the only tourists in the place which was quite nice. The staff behind the bar gave us extra food and free slices of panettone which was very kind of them. They also... More

Although I've rated this average, it's still fair to say that my girlfriend and I had a lovely evening here. We were seated and served by a friendly waiter who was on hand as required throughout the meal. There was a live band playing a few Beatles covers (downtempo) along with some other songs we didn't know. The food was... More

Hi Everyone! I had the chance to stop by this restaurant few days ago. The place and the people there are nice and really welcoming, but we had a bad surprise later.... We were in 3 people and we ordered 2 fish antipasti, 2 fritture miste and 1 fish grigliata, with 1 liter of prosecco wine. We ended up paying... More

Found this hidden gem on Tripadvisor whilst browsing where to eat out once in Venice. We booked a table and it was a good job we did, the place was packed! A restaurant for the locals so you know you are guaranteed good food! Unlike these touristy places by St.Marks. Great buzz about the place as well as lovely food... More

Got caught in a hellacious storm on my way to Bentigodi di Chef Domenico. At last, the weather broke and I ran the last few blocks to the restaurant. Despite my lack of reservation and being almost completely booked, the maitre d' found me a small table in the bar area and a complimentary glass of prosecco. Friendly service didn't... More

Walking around Venice its loads of fun. It can also make you hungry. My self and my wife stumbled across this place well out of the main tourist spots. Service was very good, so friendly, a little casual. More like your at a friends house then a restaurant. Not a bad thing I feel. For a starter we ordered an... More
