Friday night dinner at this restaurant during a long weekend staying on the Venice Lido Island in the first week of December. I booked online before we went, and they sent an email to remind us of our booking. It was quiet but the season is pretty much over, so not too surprising. Rimoun, the proprietor, welcomed us, and we... More

Delightful ambience and an affable host. Good food well presented with varied fish dishes being a particular strength . Tables well spaced to give just the right amount of personal intimacy. When you consider that this restaurant is located within a short walk of very mediocre eateries on the main Elisabetta street,it has everything to recommend it. What more can... More

Had a great meal last night and an even better conversation with the owner. Looking forward to returning when we visit Lido again.

I can honestly say that I had the best Penne al Arrabiata ever at Trattoria Africa. Secondo was a Branzino, soft and made to the point, although great. Unlike the other restaurants at Lido it was easy to get a table there, so consider that an insider tip.

Whilst asking a local directions to our hotel, we also asked him for a local restaurant recommendation. He said he takes his girlfriend to Africa, and dont let the name put you off. He was correct on all counts. The staff were great, the food was delicious, and our table outside gave us the al fresco experience. We would definitely... More

We did not know what to expect from a resto with this strange name but it turned out to serve very good local dishes, often with sea food. The pasta was very tasty and perfectly cooked (what you expect in italy but rarely get...). The red house wine was also good, better than average house wine. And the service was... More

Staying in Lido. Thought of using trip advisor to find a good restaurant, rather than use the closest to our hotel like you do. A lot of people were recommending this little gem tucked away on a back street in central Lido. Thought over 350 reviews can't be wrong. They weren't. Lovely place. Authentic Italian (Venetian) cuisine served. Good food,... More
