La Bitta was recommended to us so made the effort of seeking it out. It is about a 25!min walk from St Marks Square. The restaurant is small and intimate with good atmosphere. However found the menu to be very limited and on the expensive side. Whilst we had a good meal wasn't worth the 25 min walk to get... More

I walked in without a reservation just before 8, and was very fortunate to get a table. By 9 the place was packed. I was tired of several bad seafood restaurants in Venice (I live in the Bahamas) so I opted for the Filetto di Maiale alle Grbe Fini - a pork fillet sauteed with herbs. It was served with... More

Lovely restaurant and the food was exceptional. Neither my wife or I are fond of seafood and to find this place was great. The staff are really friendly and the food was incredible

Our hotel suggested this restaurant during a recent visit to Venice, and pre-booked for us. We are so glad we did - this restaurant is not one that you would normally drop in on while wandering a city as a tourist. But it's worth making a reservation and seeking it out. The exterior is unassuming, but the interior and the... More

We dined here on the recommendation of Julie from Venice Quality Tours. Our hotel concierge called to book and at first they didn't have any outside tables, but once they figured out we were actually Canadians with an Italian last name, a table magically came available (not sure what is up with that, but we took it). The food, the... More

The menu was limited but the food was beautifully cooked. Staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. They rightly take pride in their restaurant and deserve great credit for the food they serve. We are inside, although it was August. There is a small outside dining area which is pretty, but there is more space inside.

This restaurant is amazing. Great atmosphere with folks from all over the world chatting over dinner about how great the food is. Fantastic service, wine recommendations to match each course. Amazing food, beef carpaccio and panna cotta amongst the best dishes I have ever eaten, including at Michelin star restaurants. Go now!

So let's start by saying the food was superb. Best meal we had in Venice. We got caprese salad (boring, I know), a gnocchi dish and braised veal. All were superb. If you order house wine, they bring you a bottle but only charge for what you drink, which we appreciated. There is no seafood on the menu, which is... More

If you are lucky enough to go when they offer the artichoke salad, don't miss it. It's incredible. Everything here is incredible, and the fact that you only pay for the wine that you drink from a bottle is a bonus. Excellent service and delicious food.

I discovered this restaurant last year when I was here with my husband and it was so memorable that I didn't hesitate to go again this year on my trip with my daughter. It was just as wonderful the second time around. I had the beef carpaccio to start and a delicious herbed pork dish (and I don't usually care... More

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.
