Let there be NO mistake, This is NOT fast food. If you like food prepared properly with plenty of taste you have to eat here. It doesn't matter what you pick off the menu it Top Quality you will not get else where. It will be worth your visit.

We arrived at the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. Do not be in a hurry.... take your time and savor as much as you can on their exceptional menu! However, the bar is limited to beer and wine.

Two sections, one side has a nice restaurant (not too full or empty when we went in the September off season). We both had their duck entree with properly cooked spinach, rice, etc. Very nice! 4 stars because it is... More

I never grow tired of the Back Eddy. It's one of the few restaurants in Venice that I visit regularly and without exception have NEVER been disappointed with quality, ambience or service. Located one street back from the Venice Avenue plethora of Italian eateries and world's apart on all counts. No, it's not a cheap eats, two-for-one type of restaurant.... More
