It's surely not a bad sign to find every day a certain group of clients there, after all the gondolieri (which get around in the city, so they know) . Besides some italian standards for not-knowing-tourists (this is Venezia, not Toscana) you'll find a lot...More

Weny there there for lunch after visiting the Guggenheim. The branzino baked in a red sauce was good as was the scampi in a cream sauce with gnochetti. Fair price and good service.

This restaurant was recommended by a Gondoliere to us and we found him eating with us later on. Tasty, family atmosphere, friendy, swift and afforable for Venice prices.

Venice has too many tourists traps that pretend to be restaurants. These places serve lousy food for a lot of money. Trattoria Ai Cugnai is different. A rare find. This lovely little place serves very good Italian food for reasonable prices. On our visit, we...More

Nothing fancy, but they do a good job without gouging you too much. The prices are ok for Venice, even if the wine list prices border on the outrageous. Focusing on price isn't really fair for a restaurant review, but this is Venice so I...More

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
