We are a family of 5 with kids ranging in age from 16 to 9. We were in Venice in March. We found this restaurant on our way to the water bus stop going to Murano and made reservations for that night. Typical of Venice, we got lost on the way that night and could locate the restaurant. We finally found it late and soaked from the rain. The owner welcomed us warmly and made us feel like we were at a friend's house. The restaurant is small so everyone has great personalized service. The food was fantastic! We all really enjoyed our meals.

That night, there was flooding in the squares. When were getting ready to leave, the owner put on his boots and walked us halfway home until we got to a familiar area! He didn't want us to get lost again. He really made us feel special and made our last night in Venice truly memorable! We have family who are going to Venice in the fall. They will definitely go to La Colonna!

It's definitely worthwhile to get a bit lost in this part of Venice and to find such a great restarurant!
Antonio is wonderful and the experience with the local food and fish was really amasing...we enjoyed a lot the atmosphere as well -very very different from what you can find in the nearest restaurant boccadoro, don't get lost there...it's NOT the same!-
We will defnitely go back as soon as we return to Venice! & warmest congratulations to Antonio, you definitely know how to do it!

We stumbled across La Colonna and were keen as it seemed a little off the beaten track, something which was confirmed by the locals eating there! Not that we always want something completely authentic where no tourists go, but it made for a nice change of pace!

We had a simple meal - the cuttlefish pasta for myself and a pesto penne for my wife. Both were good! The owner was friendly and welcoming and the decor lovely.

Would recommend!

We have been on our way back from Murano Island, when we experienced a great storm.
Interestingly, that was how we found this restaurant.
Although we came unexpected, we did not have to wait for a table long time. Food was great, tasty , wine good.

In May we came definitely back there.

The waiter was very attentive! The atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious. Nicely hidden away off the beaten venice track and reflected in the good value for money. I would definitely go back if/when i go back to Venice, and recommend it to anyone. Grazie mille.
