“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

A must do while in Lido. The best food and wine on Lido. The most knowledgable sommelier I have met in Italy. He knows what he is doing. Great wine and food pairings.

“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Had a wonderful evening at the Tavernetta. The food was great - the fish of the day was awesome as was the Tiramisu...Ottavio was invaluable with his wine suggestions and speaks great English and French...

“On the Lido in October”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We spent five nights in the Hotel Excelsior on the Lido in October and enjoyed two dinners in La Tavernetta which is just across the road. The restaurant is family run, the food is excellent and the wine list extensive with many offers from small local vineyards. Ottavio, the owner, is passionate about the wine he serves and is generous with his knowledge. This was a real find and our visits there contributed enormously to the enjoyment of our stay on the Lido. I understand the restaurant will be closing shortly for their winter holiday and reopening, I think, in March.

“A must if your in venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were somewhat dissapointed in the food experiences we had in venice till we went here. Some of the best food we have had on our honeymoon. The service was outragous!!!! Such a great find! We had the fish done in different ways as an app and it was mindblowing! I had the scallop ravioli off of one of the reviews below and it truly is the best ravioli. My wife got the pumpkin ravioli with duck ragu. She loved it. Im not a pumpkin fan but i would eat the duck ragu by itself it was so good. Do not skip the tiramisu!!!!

“Good quality food in Lido”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had dinner there last Saturday, it's a small place and it gets crowded very easily, which means you'll have to wait a while, you shouldn't go there if you are in a hurry, it's more a slow food concept. The food was delicious and the wine was very good. The service was very personalized. The only thing that I'd change is the TV, it shouldn't be turned on. Other than that, I'd definitely go back.
