We have eaten at La Bitta on other trips to Venice and looked forward to a repeat visit. You should reserve since it's a small restaurant. I gave it a four rating this year because I thought the menu was not as interesting as in previous years and the food was somewhat average in preparation and taste. Based on our... More

I had dinner with my wife at this restaurant. Service was a bit rude. Great food, but the wine list disappointed. There were no options by the glass and the waitress suggested a house wine (vino della casa). We took it, but the wine was not as good as the food.

La Bitta is a small, charming restaurant tucked away in a narrow Venetian street. We dined in a back courtyard which was very quaint. Laundry hung above us, on clothes lines, from several adjacent buildings! The menu is traditional Venetian, but serves 'No Fish'! We were okay with that! Ordering food in each new country, that we have visited, has... More

You're left in no doubt that this is trad Venetian food in an unpretentious setting. Mainly meaty, but everything we had was great. Also a good local wine list.

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.

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.
