We recently returned from a trip to Europe, which included a third visit to Venice and our third time to lunch at this restaurant. We have enjoyed this restaurant on previous visits to Venice and therefore returned to celebrate my wife's birthday. It has a peaceful setting by the water, away from the busy crowds of Piazza San Marco. The... More

Staying in the excellent La Residenza (see review), sister hotel to La Calcina, we ate at the La Calcina restaurant one evening as the easy option. It is very pleasant, being effectively in the canal, very relaxing whilst watching the boats float by. The food was fine, the service fine and the cost (for Venice) fine. If you read my... More

Approached the restaurant and one family was sitting over two tables at the entrance. The waitress didn't approach us. After 2 min: "sorry?" "No" She checked on the other guests and then "yes?" " can we sit at the terrace?" "No" "Ok can we sit here?" (At the entrance) "For what?" "Coffee" "No" This place will only agree to serve... More

My wife and I stopped in Venice during a recent Mediterranean cruise, and had lunch at Ristorante La Calcina. We stayed in Venice for 2 days before the cruise, so we decided to do some more exploring on this stop and see where we ended up around lunch time. Before the cruise, we had a nice lunch in a restaurant... More

We went for a specific lobster pasta dish and it was amazing!! Also had the spaghetti Vongole which is a favourite of mine and that was one of... More

A lovely cafe with a waterfront view. Their bread is amazing and they are generous with it. The Chianti was light on my palate with a slight fruit note. The risotto with shrimp was delicious and the pizza was super cheesy and the crust was thin, just the way I like it. Currently waiting for desert.....

We stopped here for lunch on arrival in Venice on a Tuesday afternoon. As we got there just before 12, we got prime seats outside in the sun, with views of the islands of La Guidecca. We only ordered a main course each, along with a bottle of DOC wine. The pork fillet done Milanese style was superb, the fritto... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
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 in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
