Secret tiny restaurant in a tiny alley. Not much English spoken. Lots of seafood dishes. Bring empty stomach and a dictionary.

Not being a big seafood fan, I opted for the spaghetti carbonara. It was very good, though perhaps I should've gone for one of their seafood specialities. The table next to ours had multiple types of fish and other seafood sliced for them at their...More

While the risotto isn't quite the same as five years ago, the service is excellent and the food is still very good. The aircon when we visited last night was not working inside but the fresco dining outside in the courtyard was very pleasant. Our...More

Traditional family driven Ristorante with venetian charme and delicious rombo (turbot) dish. Good Italian wines. "Venitian prizes" but reasonable in view of the quality of food. Very recommendable Ristorante in Venice.

Worth trying to find this restaurant. A little off the tourist track, but always good when you see a restaurant is frequented by locals. Worth seeing the owner fillet the sea bass in one of its signature dishes carpaccio di branzino. A very enjoyable meal.

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
