Having walking the streets of Venice for 2 hours, we reverted to Tripadvisor and found La Bitta. Luckily we arrived just before 7pm when it opened. They offer 2 sittings each evening at 7pm and 9pm. Food is fantastic but portions are not huge so...More

We booked here without realising that they don’t serve fish and I was really wanting a fish meal! Our welcome was warm and the restaurant is really cosy. You have to go outside through a garden area to the bathroom though which wouldn’t be pleasant...More

There are two seatings at this small establishment, 7 or 9pm, and at either, you will be treated to a wonderful seasonal selection of recipes. We were head over heels for the pasta with a pork ragu. It was everything you hope to have when...More

My girlfriend and I visited Venice some time ago and decided to try out different restaurants every night. However, La Bitta was by FAR the best we tried and so we decided to come back for a second night. Really good food and lots of...More

Very small and simple place. Best to book in advance for dinner (they have a 7pm or 9pm service) even off season. Limited choice on the menu but enough to please most palates (more or less 2 choices of salads, 2 choices of pasta, 1...More

On some levels you would not call La Bitta a gourmet restaurant. But everything they do seems to be done with great care and attention to detail. The fact that they do just two seatings a night (7 and 9), hand write out the menu...More

A lovely change from pizza or pasta menus! Two of us visited late (9.30pm) on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was half-full. The atmosphere was cosy and the waiters were very attentive. The menu is small and hand-written each day with about 12 options...More

Lovely evening with fantastic food especially the lamb and the tiramisu which was the best I have ever had. Good service and good value.

Had a lovely dinner for two. There is a short daily menu with unique dishes that we did not see before. Everything we tasted was delicious. Salami cooked with balsamic vinegar, special lasagna and other dishes were great. For desert we had an amazing panacota....More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
