“Seriously good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Amazing Italian food. Unexpected in a touristy city like Venice. Good quality, reasonable price, great kind service, and simply sensational food.
Some of the best pasta ever had severed here (clams, peas, tomato spaghetti; crab gnocchi; black tagliatelle with shrimp).
Went back twice, and were grateful to our nearby hotel for their recommendation.
Make a booking, unless you like eating late after 9pm as we did.

“Friendly Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Venice, because we were late we asked at our hotel for a recommendation. This restaurant was just around the corner for us. What we found was a small, very friendly resaurant, with may be a limited choice of food, but what was served was excellent. My partner and I are fussy eaters, she likes fish, but likes to know what it is, I do not eat fish, sort of limits your choice in Venice, but I do enjoy my meat (why do they not give you the choice of leaving the haed and tail on), but we were able to find something on the menu to enjoy. Again, we are fussy drinkers and don't drink a lot, however we did order the house wine 'by the glass', one white and one red and it was very enjoyable. Well worth a visit.

“A dining experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

Restaurant Ribot stands out in Venice for it's modern culinary flair. While it is part of the Venetian experience to embrace what is time honored, and traditional, it is important to note that Venice is many things and Ribot, with its unique blend of serving up traditional dishes with a modern twist scored with us. Every dish was well prepared, fresh, and artful in design. Smaller menu...yes, but what they offer here strikes me as very thoughtfully prepared. If what you see on the menu fails to entice you, then my advice is to leave it for another evening, as the menu seems to change frequently.
We found the service to be professional and polite.

“A truly enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We were greeted at the door as if we were old friends. We selected from the two set three course menus (one at 25.50 and the other at 27.50 Euros), which change daily according to what produce is fresh in the market that day. The meal was relaxed, the food was excellent as was the Soave wine, the service was friendly. This is a place that we will certainly return to.
