Perhaps it was the fact we arrived late for dinner on a Saturday night, but the waiter wasn’t particularly friendly, just did the job required. When my daughter ate only a third of her gnocchi, he acted as if there was something wrong with her...More

I loved this restaurant. It was peaceful and far enough away from the grand canal that you couldn’t hear the roar of the crowd. The caprese salad was elegant and tasty and the pumpkin gnocchi was spectacular. The service was smooth and friendly but not...More

Not great food but even worse service. We had average expectations and went well below- food not cooked well, bland and the service was not at all customer oriented.

Italy is a tough place for vegetarians! This was a good restaurant with a menu which actually catered for vegetarians!! There was a fair choice other than the usual spaghetti pomodoro or pizza you get everywhere! The food was tasteful and nicely presented, the portions...More

Pretty canalside restaurant, which was not too busy for early evening. We were keen to try local dishes, so I had very tender calves liver dish - Fegato with onions and grilled white polenta cake; a very pleasing introduction to Venetian cooking . My wife...More

We had dinner for four at the canal side and the food was ok. Although my order of what was translated as fried mixed fish and fried vegetables was actually fried sea food with what might have been fried mashed potato (but probably wasn’t). I...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

Aperitifs and appetizers, typical Venetian cuisine to enjoy the peace of fondamenta Tolentini, living genuine and hospitable atmosphere, one of the premises of the real Venice! Ca 'Leon is also a compelling and welcoming inn.
