The staff sat us outside in a very nice courtyard. They even put on mozzie repellent for us. They provided us a glass of Prosecco and lemoncello free, as part of the normal cover charge. The food is authentic tasty. The service is second to...More

We had a great dinner outside here on our last evening in Venice. My husband got the seafood pasta, which he devoured, so obviously it was amazing. I had the lasagna, which was piping hot and good...I wouldn’t call it great, but it was good....More

Our hotel recommended this genuinely delightful restaurant, tucked away from the main stream of tourists and specializing in seafood dishes. I admit we ate dinner here twice. I also admit we had the Bronzino baked in a salt crust both times. This house specialty is...More

The place was nice but the food was nothing special. The best was the free prosecco as predrink and limoncello. The staff were way too flirty and talkative, making me feel uncomfortable. I will not go here again.

This was the restaurant we were looking for, not on a busy street or on the grand canal but in a more quiet part of the city just past a street corner like a Van Gogh painting. Food was excellent , I had the seafood...More

My wife & I looked for restaurant local Venezians enjoy, within reasonable walking distance from hotel. The evening hotel desk manager suggested this gem because he was personally familiar with the quality. This is not a pizzeria, it is quality fish & pasta at an...More

We ate here on our last night in Venice - and I wish we had found this restaurant earlier. It was the best meal - and the best value - of our holiday. The setting is unusual in a small piazza and after dark made...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
