We ate at this restaurant on our previous visit to Venice in 2013 but found that our recent experience did not live up to our expectations. Food disappointing and lacking in atmosphere

Our air bnb host recommended this restaurant and we had a lovely meal. The setting is very romantic right on a canal and lovely in the evening. We all enjoyed our meals (pizza for some and spaghetti carbonara for me). The caprese was ok, but...More

The location is very nice. Near a small canal, quiet and comfortable. The food was good but nothing special to visit again. The service was not ok since the waitress seemed like she didn't like the job. It's a bit expensive but it's Venice.

Found this place whilst just wandering about during our last night in Venice. It's not touristy, it's not next to any particularly busy Piazza or anything, (there is a Piazza the other side of the bell tower that towers over the seating area, but it...More

What a find this was for us - we came across this fabulous restaurant in a beautiful location right by a quiet canal overlooked by a church tower. Delicious pasta, we had tagliatelle with clams and a lasagna of veal, we shared a Greek salad....More

Highly recommended. Presentation of the food was superb, delivered quickly and tasted great. Very reasonably priced wine. You have to work to find this place, off the square near St Stae vaporetto stop.

What a lovely find! Quiet location, friendly staff and beautifully presented home cooked lunch. Sit and watch the water traffic go by at a sedate speed...and limoncello on the house!

Had a wonderful meal with Pizza, Pasta and The Monkfish on the water. Great service and the cheese plate appetizer is fabulous.

Cozy restaurant next to the canal with friendly staff and a great atmosphere but not for Pizza lovers. We had a great meal when we visited many years ago but the Pizza's we had this time was undercooked and lacked flavour. We didn't try the...More

My wife and I arrived 30 min before closing but were still provided excellent service by the wait staff who were very patient and receptive to our lack of Italian language skills. Our first course was the penne pasta that was absolutely the best we...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

I don't know about peanut oil but while we were there a lady asked about gluten free options & the waitress was most informative so it's safe to explain your situation to the team before you arrive. There's a phone number... More
