Recommended by the hotel, this was a very nice and fun restaurant, authentic old. Food was very solid Italian traditional. They do host tours, but that didn't affect us as we were in a nice out of the way spot. Have your hotel book a rese.

Our hotel recommended A La Vecia Cavana and we were glad they did! The traditional atmosphere was unsurpassed during our 3 day stay in Venice. The menu was varied and included most all of the food items you may have read about when investigating Venice. The waitstaff was highly professional, providing excellent and timely service. Our Italian waiter spoke excellent English and we overheard him speaking French as well as Japanese to other tables! Wine selection is expansive. I highly recommend including this restaurant in anyone's trip to Venice!

We were treated to an excellent evening at this out of the way magnificent restaurant. The decor was stylish and the waiters most attentive. We were served tasty risotto and pasta dishes. The frittura mista of fish was delicious.A great selection of local wines.

Stumbled across this lovely restaurant when wandering in the alleyways around our apartment. At first we were concerned that it looked very expensive for our family of four but the menu is extensive and varied and there is something for every budget - you could certainly have a very expensive meal but equally you can eat top quality food, with excellent service, for a very reasonable price. We sat inside as it was raining and the atmosphere was calm and professional with classic decoration and a warm welcome. The waiters were top quality - smartly dressed, multi-lingual and very helpful - made our children feel welcome and at ease. In some ways the restaurant seemed to be from a former age but that is a compliment - everything was done well and without hurry. We were given a welcome Bellini cocktail - a nice touch - and all our food was first class. Desserts were a treat - a proper dessert trolley with a wide range of homemade desserts presented and explained by our waiter. Another blast from the past but I loved it! Finished the meal with coffees and complimentary petit fours and went home very happy with the evening, the food and the bill. Sixteen year old son said it was the best meal of his holiday and that has to be a good testament!

Away from the crowds and the tourists, this Venetian gem was just the ticket for us. We stared with octopus salad which was delicious. We had the mushroom and scampi risotto for two which was, hands down, the best risotto I have ever tasted. Dessert was lovely too. They also recommended a great bottle wine. We loved the live music and the great service we recieved from the waiters. All in all, an excellent experience!
