La Rivista is a good place to go for lunch and for drinks. It is conveniently located near Accademia and serves good pasta and fish dishes. Professional and courteous staff accommodated us right away even when it was Easter Sunday, making our experience in Venice more delightful.

Delicious dinner in a lovely intimate restaurant attached to our hotel. We chose to dine here for the convenience and were delighted by the friendly service and superior food.

This was a pretty good meal! Dessert was definitely the best part; chocolate mousse and Christmas cake. That being said, I am a little surprised to see so many 5-star reviews; I think it deserves 4 stars for a few reasons. My dad asked the server if the restaurant offered any gluten free pastas. He said it would take an... More

La Rivista is the in-house restaurant at the Ca' Pisani hotel. We found the service to be prompt, friendly and helpful. The food was a joy to behold and enjoy. Each dish was fresh, flavorful and crafted with care. We found the level of thought, sophistication and presentation to be a cut above the many other restaurants serving Venetian food.... More

A small distance from the oppressive turistic crowding, in a wide but quiet street we were served by a very polite personnel really well-cooked food. Only four or five tables outside.

I had lunch here with my boyfriend and his parents. We had a great meal: baccalà mantecato, 4 different types of "saor", bigoli in salsa and bigoli con le cozze. This plate, likwise the antipasto "salvia fritta", were not on the menu but were suggested by the chef and we did appreciate the suggestions with fresh ingredients. The chocolate dessert... More

La Rivista is a wine and cheese bar attached to Ca Pisani hotel. However my partner and I ate there on two occasions and it offered more than just cheese and wine. The menu is limited though the staff are proud that the food served is local and that some of it is traditional Venetian food. I had a divine... More

We arrived at sunset and walked a long way to our hotel so as we were tired and hungry we went into the first restaurant we found for dinner. Everything was wonderful. The food was excellent, modern Italian food made with good ingredients and creativity. The service was friendly and proper. The young waiter spoke English which in our tired... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
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 in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
