The Wife and I first came here 2 years ago and had a great meal, for which I submitted a good TA review. Finding ourselves in Venice again we decided we simply had to have another meal here. This time we had 3 other family...More

We are in Venice on an anniversary trip. Concierge recommended this. Scallop appetizer, clams and pasta and cheese plate. All great, and a very small cozy ambiance. Wait staff very friendly and accomodating to Americans.

First, if you use Google maps to find this restaurant, you'll never get there as Google is completely incorrect. Continue walking past where Google takes you for another 3 minutes or so until you see the Teatro Italia. Across from the theater is a newsstand,...More

It's easy to spend a great deal of money in restaurants in Venice which really aren't that good - well this isn't one of those places. If you appreciate good food and wine for a reasonably price and find yourself in Venice I can't recommend...More

We had a very nice dinner here. Pasta in particular was perfectly cooked. This area is not deserted, but is away from the thickest of Venetian crowds. If you follow Google maps you will not get here. Apple maps will do the trick. Their menu...More

We thoroughly enjoyed a sensational, exquisite meal at La Colombina last night. It was a relaxed atmosphere, yet elegant and gourmet. Everything was done with special attention to detail. We highly recommend this restaurant.

The place is usually fully books in the evenings, so it's better to reserve in advance. Or you'll have to wait till a table gets free. The staff is very friendly. The hostess (maybe the owner?) is an energetic, positive and very welcoming lady. The...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

As the answers from others suggest, it depends on whether you want to meet the norm or merely avoid getting tossed out. In my experience, few Europeans go to dinner in shorts, even in very hot Venice.

Right in the heart of Venice, between Santa Lucia train station and the Rialto Bridge, and just a few steps away from the Casino, you will find a restaurant where we have translated our welcoming philosophy into a concrete culinary experience: "La Colombina". There are numberless reasons to visit and revisit Venice, but now you can add one more: "La Colombina", a gastronomic experience inspired by tradition but also focused on contemporaneity. In short, a new "classic" ranging from traditional Venetian dishes to unique gourmet temptations going from aperitifs to lunches and special occasions. How to reach us: It's incredibly simple! From Piazzale Roma or the Santa Lucia train station follow the main street (Strada Nova) towards Ponte di Rialto (take a left when exiting the train station). In the "calle" (small street) just in front of the "Teatro Italia" you will find La Colombina. We are only 10 minutes away from the central station, just a few steps from the Casino and 10 minutes from the Rialto Bridge. La Colombina is also conveniently adjacent to a "Vaporetto" stop (San Marcuola, Linea 1) and is centrally located and ideally very close to Venice's main attractions.
