Our family of five had the cozy table inside by the entrance for the 7pm seating and despite tired kids, my wife and I had one of our favorite meals. Certainly more expensive than many other neighborhood trattorias but more polished service and excellent execution...More

The liver was unappetizing to look at and worse to taste. Tough and overcooked just like your mother made it. Filet mignon was just not a good piece of beef by American standards. This restaurant is touted as the best meat based menu Venice (they...More

Of all the restaurants in the Dosoduro we ate at this was the one we most wanted to return to. The food was great, the service friendly and we enjoyed the wine - worth splashing out a bit if you can afford it. A short...More

A bit hidden place few minutes from Galerie della' Academia. Small, very nice place with local, venetian food. Ideal for a dinner with friends. Amazing goose with plums and apples, fantastic gnocchi, everything fresh and in a good price. You have to visit!

We did not have a reservation and were totally lucky to get a table. Little cute restaurant with a lot of local charme. Best Carpaccio ever, the Gnocchi just melted on the tongue. And the Panna Cotta - che bellissima. Super friendly staff and reasonable...More

We had reservations way in advance and were glad we did. This seems to be one of "the" places people want to try. As others have stated - no fish - just meat. Food was good, service was relatively fast but we just felt uncomfortable...More

This is a small restaurant in a narrow street in Dorsoduro. It has a small courtyard at the back, which would have to be requested. The food was very tasty and nicely presented. Recommended wine was appropriate to our selection. Booking essential.

This restaurant is a good stroll from St Marks Square, over Academia Bridge and in the back streets but well worth the walk. Recommended by our travel company representative, it proved a very pleasant little restaurant serving good, wholesome food. Service was all it should...More

Small and cosy, excellent meat restaurant. We had perfectly cooked Venetian liver and tender pork with herbs. Reasonable wines. Nice atmosphere.

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

I genuinely wouldn't bother. Our experience was dreadful, mediocre food and rude service. Then overcharged. Don't waste your time and money. Osteria Ai Do Farai is nearby and excellent
