We found this place around the corner, well a few corners, from a hotel we were staying at on Lido. The night we visited we were the only diners, but it's October. Better than a rammed restaurant any day. Service was good, really friendly guy greeted us. Showed us through to the restaurant. This is a no frills place, but... More

Thank you to Emiliano, Ricardo and the rest of the staff for the great friendly service and beautiful food served to us on our regular visits to your wonderful restaurant during The Venice Film Festival for the past 5 years.

We returned to Lido Di Venezia, near Venice, for another holiday and ate at Pizzeria 161 most nights. The service from Ricardo & Elena is fantastic - they are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. There's a really relaxed atmosphere and great to take kids there. The food is absolutely fantastic, especially the pizza and the seafood.... More

The restaurant now seems nameless and do not serve any gluten free pizza. Still a friendly place, crowded with locals and far away from the most touristy part of the island. And the food (gf spagetti alla carbonara but with penne) was okay even though we had to wait a long time to get it.

Friendly atmosphere, good drinks from a fair price makes Riccardo's one of the best bars around Venice! I definitely recommended to everyone.

It is an amazing place to go for food or a drink if you fancy a break from the overpriced restaurants of Venice. With incredibly friendly, warm staff, you instantly feel at home and they are happy to accommodate you in any way they can. I will be back here often I expect. Thanks for everything.

We have spent four days in Lido while visiting the Biennale in Venice. The first night here we tried 161 and have been coming back everyday. The people are warm and friendly and the food is satisfying and seems home-cooked. There is a special dish each evening. Mornings we hung out here for coffee and wifi! We'll be back next... More

We were staying in a hotel and wanted a local restaurant not too far. We had a warm welcome from the waiter who speaks a good English. The food we had was lovely and tasty (bruschetta, cheese pasta and vegetable pizza). Really good address for local and familial food

I've eaten here lots of times as a guest of my local friends, and as I was staying locally on this trip, decided to eat here on my own. As ever, the service is excellent - all the staff very friendly and helpful - as well as English speaking (my Italian is still pretty rubbish after all these years...) Food... More

Delicious pizza and fish in this bustling, inexpensive restaurant. Friendly, English speaking staff. Ristorante used by locals and visitors alike. Very handy for Hotel Sorriso. This place is definitely worth seeking out if you are staying on or visiting Venice Lido.
