When food tastes as it should- ask for nothing else. Nothing is masked by heavy seasoning- the flavors of all the vegetables make it a celebration in the mouth. Beyond that, they made a special effort to accommodate my vegan diet. Super tasty vegetable soup,...More

After walking in 33 degrees for 3 hours we stumbled upon this little restaurant just before they were closing up. Now, reading the reviews, it looks like it was a lucky accident. The food was fantastic - the gnocchi was the best I have ever...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
