The concierge at our hotel recommended this little gem. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Two of us had fish and two pasta and we all enjoyed it. The wine selection is limited to a house red and white, but otherwise...More

What a disappointing dinner. We had walked past this trattoria on previous visits to Venice and thought that it looked like an old fashioned, traditional trattoria so thought we would give it a go. Never again. We walked in and were not greeted by anyone...More

We went in for drinks and a snack to see how it would be for dinner. The waiter was slow and sullen. The scallops we ordered had obviously been frozen on a shell and had more dry breadcrumbs than scallops. The red house wine was...More

I'm always sorry to write a bad review, but I think it is so helpful for others that I feel in a way it is a responsibility to do so. I'll try, though, to be objective and just describe the experience as it went. So...More

We loved the casual feel of this trattoria. Great background rock music, godfather waiters and sublime food. It was not too precious which we liked. Laid back informality with affordable food. Seabass was superb as was veal. Well done chaps.

We discovered this delightful restaurant quite by chance wandering through Venice. We enjoyed a simple but delicious meal - delightful home made soups, great cheese and meat platter. Good wine selection and of course great Caffe. Hoping that my lifelong journey finds me back there...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

Buon giorno da Alberto titolare della trattoria la rosa dei venti. In merito a questa recensione vorrei, se mi è consentito, rispondere. Le critiche si accettano sempre quando sono costruttive. Questa mi dispiace, non è una critica. Questo è puro terrorismo. Mai, in tanti anni di carriera, mi è stato scritto "Da evitare come la peste". Inoltre sostenere che si vendono cibi precotti e surgelati è veramente oltraggioso, considerando che pago DUE CUOCHI e che, personalmente, acquisto ogni giorno prodotti freschi e di QUALITA. La serietà del tripadvisor dovrebbe impedire la divulgazione di certe recensioni prive di fondamento atte solamente a denigrare il lavoro duro e onesto che ogni giorno mettiamo in atto. Grazie per la pubblicazione della mia risposta. Alberto Simonetto Titolare.
