You can find Bar Foscarini at the foot of the Dorsoduro side of the Accademia Bridge. The small charmingly lit patio provides a lively view of Canal traffic and the foot traffic over the bridge without feeling that you are in the midst of all...More

An excellent location at the base of the Academia bridge, with a small terrace overlooking the boats passing on grand canal, and plenty of sun. We had friendly service and a good pizza, a very tasty salad, water and two glasses of wine (and service)...More

We celebrated our 20 year anniversary in Venice and this place was my favorite place to eat. The view is amazing and the staff is very prompt and courteous. Honestly, the pizza was not the best we had during our stay, but there are other...More

My partner and I sat down at nine pm just wanting a quick bite and drink. 33 euros later and all we had was a beer, house red wine and pizza. Great view but considering we were on a budget and could have used that...More

8 years ago, my husband and I found this tiny terrace restaurant (there ARE tables indoor, but why would you go inside when you can enjoy the fabulous view?) after a few -frankly - rip off experiences in other Venice eateries, during our trip. Here,...More

A very nice bar/pizzeria in a beautiful location! The pizza was good and the service was also very good and friendly. The only negative point was the bad cutlery that had a hard time cutting the pizza.

Firstly lets be blunt, you are paying for the location at the bottom of the Academia bridge with Grand canal views. A wine and a beer 15 euros. But to sit and watch the GC and all the too-ing and fro-ing is just perfect. Recommended...More

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

Yes. You can sit inside. But I never got to sit inside. It may be packed. I imagine colder months more people want to sit inside.
