“Best meal in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We asked our concierge to book us a table for that evening, which we were suprised to get having read the TA reviews recommending to book in advance.

We were seated at a table inside, which is more preferable as the thoroughfare outside the restaurant is narrow and very busy. The decor and ambiance inside the restaurant contributed to the perfect italian dining experience.

The menu changes daily, and varies with great quality cuisine. I went for the prawn and tomato pasta, and then John Dory which was accompanied with beetroot/boiled potatoes and green beans. My partner had lobster pasta and then Turbot. For dessert, I had chocolate mouse (which was unforgettable) and my partner had the passionfruit sorbet with a prosecco fizz. The meal was thoroughly enjoyed.

Although we had plenty of high quality dishes through out our stay in Venice, this for us was the best experience over all from the food to the service to the atmosphere and soft italian music playing in the background. Truely great experience, recommend highly.

“Enoteca Ai Artisi dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Excellent dinner at this lovely small restaurant in Dorsoduro area near our hotel. Had wonderful angler fish, as recommended by the waiter; perfect choice for our first night in Venice.

“Memorable meal, great ambiance, wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was our last meal of the 10 day Italy trip, and it couldn't have been more perfect. We read about this restaurant on trip advisor and figured it was a long shot, as it only seats 20-25. But we stumbled upon it on our way to another location, and it just so happened a table had opened up. We sat outside on this quiet street next to a canal, which I loved. Our waiter could not have been more lovely or friendly. And then there's the food. Our understanding was that the chef goes to the market each morning and buys what he'll cook that night - so it's fresh, inventive, and based on what looked good that day. In turn, everything from the fish appetizer platter, to the clams and pasta, to the turbot and the side veggies, to the mascarpone-yogurt dessert was pure bliss.

“Overrated and location disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We went on the recommendation of my sister in law.
Arrived and hoped to god that we were not going to have to sit outside amongst the stream of gawpers on a very narrow thoroughfare (dogs and all)
However, inside it is pleasant.
The owner is friendly and knowledgable and the food is local and fresh.
Great wine list. Food was good but did not reach the exceptional standards that people on this site have raved about.
All in all a pleasant place with good service.

“Amazing meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This was an exceptional restaurant! The restaurant itself is quite small - less than 25 seats - but what amazing ambiance and food. We had the seafood appetizer, truffle pasta, and turbot. Everything was excellent, and our waiter recommended some excellent wine pairings for us. We would strongly recommend Osteria - Enoteca Ai Artisti for anyone who likes seafood, and wants to enjoy a very special Venetian dining experience!
