We can't say enough about our experience. First, the people-even making a reservation, the owner's grandson was gracious and kind. He handed my kids cookies as I fumbled my way through Italian to make the reservation. We arrived a bit early by Italian standards -...More

This is a really small restaurant, with a small menu. At first glance it looks barely convincing, but once you have taken your seat, you will find a hospitable service and a very good and straightforward cuisine „a la mama“. Both the sea bass and...More

One of our local Venice business contacts recommended Ai Cugnai and it was a GREAT recommendation! The food was excellent and the service superb. The orice was quite moderate for the heart of Venice. The lasagne was very good. Two members of our group had...More

As we stood outside four Gondeliers emerged from the restaurant: always a good sign. The ambience and style were authentic, the waiters smartly attired and attentive. We ordered 2 glasses of red wine at 3.50 euros each and two plates of lasagne. What a delightful...More

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
