Wait staff was somewhat rude. Kept pushing some local beer on me, which i ended up ordering not knowing it cost 15EUR. Food was ok. 5 EUR coperto charge was added to bill. When done, the bill we expected to be 30EUR turned into over 50. Their goal is not to run a good restaurant but to squeeze every penny... More

Very unassuming spot in an authentic and largely untouristed spot. We were staying in an apartment nearby. Great little square. Quiet in a summers evening. Mixed seafood antipasto and mixed seafood and vegetable were lightly crumbed and lovely and tender inside. Kids lapped up the pasta. Service was very friendly. Prices reasonable. Even allowed us to mix pasta and sauces... More

Venice can get so crowded that it can be overwhelming and difficult to find a nice place for dinner. I always like locations that are a little less crowded. This restaurant was near our hotel and was very pleasant. We had a waiter named "Sorry", and at first I was worried it would be a tourist trap, but it was... More

We ate dinner here one evening. Nice little plaza..seems to be a fairly local area--lots of people walking dogs, etc. Just over the bridge on Ruga Bella from the San Giacomo Church (that plaza was totally filled with locals, lots of kids playing! Great family place!). Food was good--we had pizzas and salads, mostly. Nothing spectacular...service was okay--seemed to take... More

We just ran into this place by accident as you do most things in Venice. :-) We had risotto & lasagna. It was the best risotto that I had while in Italy and the lasagna was up there too. I would definitely recommend this place again.

Haven chosen to sit down and been bombarded by three different waiters simultaneously, we got a chance to read the menu but only briefly before being asked what wine we wanted after we had asked for a bottle of water, there's only so many times you can say 'no' - 5 in this case, before they get the hint. We... More

Just had dinner...amazing! Great pasta, great seafood and great service. Could not have asked for a better dinner for our last night in Venice. I would highly recommend this restaurant, not near the water, however, quiet and cheery location. Sorry was our waiter and he was amazing and funny...made our night!

In a quiet square just a few minutes from the Riva di Biasio vaporetto stop, this restaurant has lots of tables outside as well as an indoor area which we especially liked. We dined here repeatedly during a week's visit to Venice; our most memorable meal consisting of antipasto di sarde al saor followed by tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms. They... More

One little detail, both managment and kitchen at Al Canton dei Artisti are Chinese, definitely not Italian. I guess this explains why they have no trouble serving canned mushrooms or keeping a dog in the kitchen. While eating we had live entertainment with a fight between a guest and the waiter with the former claiming he was misled into ordering... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
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 universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
