We had a lovely meal here on our last night in Venice. We both ordered the fish tasting menu which was incredible. The host was a real character, really attentive and friendly. We went in spring, so all the tables were inside. In warmer months...More

The food was alright but nothing to shout about. Took the degustation menu, for the price, I can actually find comparable food elsewhere on Venice. But staff was very friendly and helpful.More

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

The hotel is about 20-25 minutes walk, which is fine to work up an appetite, but I suggest a vaporetto from San Basilio for the return. Your nearest stop to the hotel is S. Zaccaria.
