“Locals, regulars and tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Le Campane, Venice, Italy

This inviting, brightly lit restaurant looks like a small, intimate trattoria from the street, but once you pass the first few tables it opens into a labyrinth of rooms. We were impressed with the number of locals, regulars, and tourists who continually entered the restaurant while we were dining.
Since we had eaten a large lunch (it was Easter Day), we opted to share a salad fresca and pizza prosciutto crudo. Perfect! The salad was composed or market fresh arugula and butter lettuce, small tomatoes, black olives and parmesan cheese. Olive oil and balsamic vinegar were supplied at the table. The pizza was plenty for two, but many folks were eating the entire pie alone! As is the local style, the pizza was very thin with a crispy crust, lightly sauced and cheesed, and loaded with fresh Parma ham. We shared a carafe of the local white wine. There was a 1 euro charge for each dish shared but the total bill was still right at 40 euros, so not too bad for a good, light meal in an expensive city!

“Accaptable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Situated in the Cannareggio area, we stopped here for a quick lunch.

Menu is varied and includes a selection of antipasti, starters and mains. Staff was nice and service good.

We had a selection of cold cuts which was good, followed by pizza which altough nothing to write home about, it was good. The let down was the chili oil that was served to us on the table, it was expired by months, and tough it's something easy for the staff to notice, they seem to be careless enough to let this happen for months.

“We came back for more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

There are hundreds of restaurants in Venice but we came back 3 times in this simple, unassuming restaurant in Venice. Perhaps its unpretentious nature attracted us. The warm service - all in Italian - somehow made us feel welcome. And the food? Always good! Whether it was a steak or pasta or a fish dish, it was always well prepared and tasty. It had a simplicity to it that reflected the ambiance of the place. If it was geared for tourists, it was not obvious nor did we care too much as we came back for the well cooked and reasonably priced meals. It is a good find and quite easy to find, too.

“Friendly service, great food and good advice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Our first meal in Venice and we happened on this wonderful establishment. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful and instructive. The fish that was recommended was perfect and matched with an appropriate wine. Real value for money when we look back over the last week in Venice were service is not ideal and prices can be ridiculous.

“great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

When we found this restaurant, it was by chance that we saw the courtyard while walking along a narrow lane. If you go here ask to sit in the courtyard, it's quiet, secluded and vine covered.
The food was basic but good, we ate off of one of the set menus. We also had a lovely bottle of wine. The lady who served us was lovely, very friendly and couldn't have been nicer. It was also inexpensive. Will definately go back.
