I used to go to the original location in an old palazzo which was reputed to be the former bordello for the nobles (hence the name Casin dei Nobili). Food was great and charming ambiance. But now they have a location that's handier to me, right on the water of the Canale della Giudecca. Same food with more of a... More

I travel to Venice several times a year and five years ago, this place was very good. Service was excellent, food was thoughtful and local. In the years since, it has become a tourist trap. The service suffers from burly waiters who don't care. I watched our waiter rudely refuse to allow another table to move (to get out of... More

Our most expensive and worst meal in Venice. That was lunch, not even dinner and it was the most expensive. With 4 people in out group we were 10 Euro in the hole as soon as we ordered due to their "service fee" Had we seen this we would have kept on going. Late lunch so pizza was not available.... More

Well, no spectacual food but nice staff that kept the customers happy. The menu had the classic content with a nice range of pizzas. The dessert, that were premade somewhere, was nicly stacked in the fridge for all customers to ser during dinner. That did not create any urgent need for ordering dessert after dinner.

Venice doesn't do itself any favours with the hit and miss standard and high prices of restaurants which, because of the compulsory cover charges, work out about £10 per meal (for two people) more than equivalent restaurants in London. This is a very average eaterie with indifferent service and mediocre food (we both had pasta, spaghetti in squid ink and... More

This very cute place draws you in, and it ends there, the worst rude aggressive terrible service you will ever find. Rude Rude Rude wait staff. Tried to order pizza which was about half of their menu but was told that they didn't want to serve pizza today.... Really the attitude and lack of service was the worst we have... More

This is a very busy place, and it seems as if they are understaffed. The young waiter was running for his life, to cope with all the tables. Therefore the service was not quite professional. Food is average, and the desserts are not homemade. Could not get an Italian Brandy!

Not the best pizza we had in Italy but it was nice - pugliana I think. The caprese salad was a stingy portion and expensive in comparison with elsewhere in Venice where they give you a whole mozzarella ball, here is was just 4 slices and was a good couple of euros more expensive than we'd paid elsewhere. Service was... More

I went with my girlfriend to this place in Venice, it has been the worst restaurant we eaten during our 9 days trip around Italy.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
