Found this restaurant by chance wondering the streets, lovely and warm inside, good service and the food was tasty!

I had the sea bass ravioli which was lovely and the mrs had sea bass fillet, we both felt we could of done with more food on our plates as it was soooo nice we wanted more! (That's the reason for 4 not 5 stars)

Not bad priced for venice and seemed busy when in there!

Don't get the ties hanging up...someone will have to enlighten me on that lol

But would return! Recommended

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel manager who said is was good and quite easy to find. He was wrong...............it was not just good, it was great! The father and daughter that run the place could not have been more helpful and, despite our lack of Italian, took great pains to understand my wife's vegetarian requirements.

The food was extremely tasty and the wine very acceptable - as was the complimentary glass of Limoncello at the end of our dining experience. The decor is unique in that the walls (and some of the ceiling) are covered in gents' neckties and cravats. Not sure if you can donate another to their collection but it was fascinating looking at all the different designs and materials.

Had we had more than a weekend in Venice we would have returned for another delicious dinner - as it was we walked past the restaurant the next evening and got a cheery wave from the daughter - remarkable memory.

Just a tip though. We were told that the restaurant opened their doors at 7pm and we arrived just then as we had a concert to attend later. But by 8pm the place was full and at least a dozen potential diners had to be turned away. So, either get there when it opens or, better still, make a booking in advance!

Good food and attentive service. Recommended by hotel and found very easily. Great mixed fried fish, more like a tempura batter and excellent quality.

After looking for a nice restaurant near our hotel we decided to try Osteria Ae Cravate. As antipasti we ordered carpaccio with rocket and parmesan. My boyfriend chose lasagna bolognese and I spaghetti a la norma, with aubergines. As dessert we tried tiramisú, excellent. Service was fast and efficient.
