I often eat here as it Is very convenient for the hotel I stay when in Venice. It has a warm a welcoming atmosphere and friendly service. The food is good - and reliably so - not super great but comforting. It's worth booking though as it gets filled up and I've seen lots and lots of casual punters turned... More

We found this little place by accident after the restaurant we were originally going to was closed. Great cosy atmosphere and the portions are HUGE. My other half got the mixed fried seafood from the lagoon and it was enough to feed 2 or 3 comfortably. Spaghetti ragu was lovely too and staff really friendly.

Delightful place. Lots of character and charming staff. The food is quite rustic in presentation but good. Very busy at the time we visited. Books around and lots of ornaments. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch one afternoon seeking respite from the rain and cold. We found the décor charming, the service friendly, and the food delicious. The menu had many seafood dishes that other patrons seemed to be enjoying, but we warmed up with vegetable beef soup, pasta with meat sauce, and the house red wine. A... More

Had lunch here food was nice and the service quiet good. Unfortunately it's was full of dogs and my other half isn't keen. They weren't really under control so it was a little distracting. Pleasant enough otherwise.

I have eaten here a couple of weeks ago. The food were really good, trying starter and main course. Portions were abundant too. Service friendly and professional. Price within the Venice range.

Before we left for Venice, a neighbour ran up to me with the business card for Ristoteca Oniga - he'd eaten there on a recent trip and insisted we go there. Oniga is in Venice's Dorsoduro neighbourhood, on Campo San Barnaba - more or less mid-way between the Academia and Rialto bridges. On this trip, we ate their twice, once... More

My husband and I decided to eat here as it looked busy, which is always a good sign, but this had to be the worst service we have experienced in Venice. There were two waitresses, one less miserable than then other. It was clearly busy so maybe they were short on staff but right from the very start it seemed... 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.
