“Racist prejudice owner/manager don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The owner or manager deliberately wouldn't let us in and advised me there was no place for 4 (my wife and I with our 2 children ) while people for 4 turned up behind us and asked for a table and asked if they had reserved a table and they said no he told them to wait a couple of minutes .

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

This place has got rave reviews, but our experience was not quite so impressive. Service was reasonable, but not especially friendly. Our table was so close to the next that we really should have just introduced ourselves and had dinner together. Our main courses were okay - not amazing, but not awful. Dessert was rather disappointing. Okay if you're stuck, but there are plenty of better places out there.

“Cozy little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Thumbs up for atmosphere, decoration and service. The food did not seem special, but just OK. It is worth trying it especially if you're wandering the streets of Venice on a cold rainy day. You will get the warmth you need to freshen up and continue for the day. Location is good, close to hotels in Santa Croce. Staff was nice. Service was quick. Decoration was very good!
I might go back again but for the place itself not necessarily for the food.

Typical local restaurant with good vegetarian options. Food and service good and reasonable prices. Book as does get busy.

“Where the locals go for great meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Osteria ae Cravate has a wonderful atmosphere.  It is decorated with men's ties everywhere.  Very welcoming.  Owner was lovely and made delicious mixed seafood risotto with mushrooms.  Tried mantis shrimp -- very good but very little meat.  Branzino was delicious.  Would definitely go back!
