Last year we stayed on Giudecca and got half addicted to La Palanca (although never for breakfast). This year we are not staying on Giudecca but we went back especially to visit La Palanca and isn’t it just wonderful where somewhere you remember so fondly...More

We came here two years after our last visit. The owner is still as lovely as we remember, probably the most charming person serving food I know. The food is still great, the location as breathtaking as ever.

Lucky in the morning you have shadow! Lovely quiet place to sit. Foodwise I thought breakfast was unconvincing. Aubergine omelette and spinach omelette were only ok. Tostis were plain and simple. The capucinno was too milky to me. The americano was lovely though. But even...More

10 euros for 2 croissants (priced at 1 euro each- charged 1.50 each) and 2 orange juices (3.50 each). If that's not extortion of foreign visitors, I don't know what is.

THE GOOD: Location. It is located outside of the tumultuous touristic area. Also you can get a table just beside the water. Have a great Pinot Grigio for lunch, under that hot sun... your life will change. THE BAD: I dont know if it was...More

Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the
crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent
Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh,
Guidecca, points away from the others – part of
Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal.
Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and
factories to a quiet residential area with a
sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
