Snug restaurant overlooks a small quiet canal, steps from the Grand Canal. Food is excellent and service is superb.

Expected more from what looks like a good local restaurant. Although the staff were friendly, the place lacks atmosphere and the two courses we each had appeared in quick succession and we were out of there in a short time. The food was mediocre with...More

Giovani was a great host and the selection on the menu vast. I felt we should have stuck to our First course as eating a second course was too much. The seafood spaghetti was delicious!

Quiet little restaurant off the beaten path. The food is simple but we were glad to select something light. I had the vegetable soup & cheese plate. My husband says his veal was good but should not have been served so plain (just veal, no...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
