Very busy restaurant that had a real authentic Italian feel. Pizza and wine for dinner was very reasonably priced and good value for money. Order your wine by the 1/4 carafe and not buy the glass is a great deal. Service was good in a place crowded with options.

We found the place by wandering around Campo Santa Margherita while looking for a place to eat. The food was delicious, the service good and the meal wasn't too expensive. Perhaps we'll go there again while we are in the city.

It was a cold night in February 2017 and we had a luck to find here a table while other tables were already occupied. Most of the eaters were local Italians and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. I ate one of most delicious pizzas. The others enjoyed as well the food. I recommend this restaurant. I am sorry for... More

We ate here on our first night in Venice. The food was lovely, and even got 0.5l of white wine at a very reasonable price. All in all would recommend if you are in the area.

We visited this restaurant for dinner whilst visiting Venice. We are sometimes cautious about restaurants on large squares as they can be a bit 'touristy' and not good value. No problems here though! Big portions, good house wine, no cover charge. What's not to like!! In a city packed with similar looking restaurants, you won't go far wrong this one!

We visited Ai Sportivi on the basis of a guide book stating they served the best pizza in Venice. We ordered three different pizzas all of which were very good but not outstanding. From the outside the restaurant looked packed so we didn't think we'd get a table, however we were shown to a back room which isn't visible from... More

Ate a meal here which was similar to previous reviews. The set menu looks good, then you can expect awful food, tiny portions and trying every trip to charge more money. Don't eat the bread. They refuse to supple tap water. This is a tourist trap as the tap water is from the mountains in Venice and should be drank... More

After seeing the restaurant full the previous night, me and my girlfriend had extremely high hopes. We arrived at 5 and were intrigued and both selected the set menu. Pasta, meat and side. Promising but from this point the night deteriorated. As the only ones in the restaurant we expected a positive experience. After taking our order and refusing us... 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.
