We ate here on our first evening out in Venice. The restaurant is located approx. 5 minutes walk from the main bus station entrance point to the island so easy to get to. The place itself is fairly basic but is very friendly and feels...More

The restaurant appeared authentic. There were a number of Italian speaking families. I had a carbonara that was tasteless, my husband had the Lasagna which was dry and over heated. I left my plate full and the staff did not even inquire if something was...More

We were hungry, it was our first evening in the city and decided to stop in for a bite. The food was delicious, however, there were lots of gnats on and flying around the table. I thought it was rather disgusting, but the gnats leave...More

Gave it average, aire on the side of caution! not good pasta was stodgy and over-priced and waiter / owner wants a kick up the jacksy, to show some interest, OK for a quick snack if you want.

An ordinary Italian restaurant by the canal.. We have not tried pasta with squid ink before and decided to have a go. Tasty and interesting, to say the least. You must not forget to constantly wipe your lips as your lips will turn black after...More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this little gem. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Two of us had fish and two pasta and we all enjoyed it. The wine selection is limited to a house red and white, but otherwise...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
