Poor service and food. Reasonable position and good outside tables and umbrellas. The waiter wasn't up to the usual Italian standard which I normally regard highly. He was perfunctory in taking the order, tried to push us into ordering more than we wanted, and slapped...More

We stopped here for a quick bite and sat outside on the canal (small canal not Grand Canal). Nice setting . . . quiet but with some activity on the waterway to set the scene. The pasta dish (Spaghetti alla Pomodoro) was very good, the...More

Ate here as wasn't too far from our hotel and had a nice setting. Found it quite expensive for what it was and had much nicer pizza elsewhere whilst in venice for less. Staff seemed quite abrupt also so overall probably would not return.

After having wandered along the canals, on and off the bridges on a sunny day, a good place where to sit and recharge the batteries is always welcome. At ca Leon you can have a rest outdoors or sit in the luxurious lounge and sip...More

We sat outside for dinner here away from the crowds closer to San Marco Square and had a fantastic meal. The service is a bit abrupt but it's not as slow as many European restaurants and the food was excellent. We tried the sea bass...More

I visited this restaurant purely by chance. I was informed that the best restaurants to eat at were the ones away from the 'busy' streets - here you would find the more authentic Italian restaurants. Albeit this restaurant was a short two minute walk away...More

Group of 8 of us. Barely enough room. Waiter was friendly but slow. Had too many tables to give good service. Spaghetti with "large shrimp" was a joke. The shrimp were large but had no meat on them. Not a good value.

Walking by just a few tables outside doesn't look like much but it is amazing! The waiter is an educated wine steward and the food delicious. Inside is gorgeous, super clean and did I say over 150 different wines. Definitely a yes!!

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
