Really nice little restaurant and the waitress very lovely. We had mussels and clams and deep fried calamari for starters, both really nice especially mussels and clams which were very tasty. The salmon burger was tasty but have noticed some have said a little dry but I have a feeling it's meant to be served this way. My husband had... More

Very nice quiet place for a lunch. Shadowed tables outside. Kind waiter. 19€ lunch menu, fish or meat, very tasty with organic ingredients. 3€ the bottle of water, 2€ of charge for the service. Highly recommended.

Food took long to be brought out. Waitress was very friendly. The people in my party (4) had this to say as follows: Gnocchi was much too starchy. Spaghetti was bland. Spaghetti with scampi was absolutely excellent. Salmon burger was dry and bland. Overall it was not impressing.

Liked the ambiente, food was tasty but I found the price quality relation not very balanced. We had 2 suggestions of the day. The spagetti with scampi 15€ plus large and fresh side salad for 5€ plus 2€ for knife and fork :-) where really ok, but the other dish, scampi and salad for 20€ plus the 2 € for... More

Very fresh and delicious seafood coupled with excellent service in charming interior. My fiancé and I had apps of Sardines Saor and Calamari Frito, plus entrees of Mixed Fish Grill and Mixed Fried Seafood, plus Tiramisu for dessert. Definite thumbs-up!

We did not plan to go here - but had absolutely no regrets that we ended up here. Great place, good service and reasonable prices. The clams/mussels in tomato and garlic is worth the visit itself.

good 'piovra' salad, enormous! but poor pasta, not 'al dente'! I really appreciate service. And the espresso is one of the best in Venice.

Had dinner here with an antipasti and a pasta. The antipasti (prosciutto and melon + fried calamari) was just OK and my calamari was served as the others in my party were finishing their prosciutto. The pastas were all a bit overcooked but with decent sauces. The gnocchi was a bit heavy - would not recommend.

This is the last stop for us at Venice, and we wanted some local casual charm and Ristoteca Oniga completely satisfied! We were seated inside (highly recommended) as the decor is such a change from most of what we have seen in Venice. It is rustic, comfortable and decorated in a chic-countryside Italian flare. The service was sooo friendly and... More

This was our first meal in Venice so we decided to go for more of the popular dishes: clams vongole and the black spaghetti. The spaghetti was milder in flavor than I expected. Both dishes were simple and a good representation. We sat outside and had a lovely experience at this restaurant.

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.
