A small restaurant with the utmost unbelievable welcome - only locals here apart from us at lunch time and we were treated like long lost friends The pasta dishes were great for lunch and the small extras like salami to try cut straight from the large sausage was to die for Today is out of season but this was great...

I thought I'd check it out...so after walking with my map I found the restaurant but there is no sign. I looked at the posted menu to ensure I was in the right place. Very unassuming. I sat down, orders a glass of wine and opened my book. I didn't finish the first page before I was chatting with everyone... More

We happened to be down near S. Basilio after visiting some churches in that area. It was a warm sunny day and as we were about to get on the Vaporetto we saw people sitting on the waterfront outside this corner restaurant eating nice looking plates of pasta. We were ready for lunch and decided on a whim to give... More

I sought out this restaurant based off of the show "No Reservations" and most of the reviews sounded positive. Upon arriving, we have never been met so nicely by the owner. He shook my hand, brought us to our table, and suggested that we relax and have some wine, since we arrived early. For dinner, we ordered the sardine and... More

The clerk at our hotel suggested this trattoria since we asked for something close by. The trattoria is located at the Borghi vaperatto stop, literally. We made reservations through our hotel since we found we needed them in many places. The owner greeted us with warmth and excitement. Seated on an outside table with a nice view of the neighboring...

We stopped here because of the reviews on trip advisor. Some say this place is hard to find but I don't understand how it's literally right in front of the water bus stop s.basilio, luckily for us we were only staying round the corner so had passed it already anyway. It's really nice we had a table by the water,... More

We were looking for something a little less crowded with tourists during our honeymoon stay in Venice. We found this on TripAdviser and decided to give it a try. When we arrived there was no outdoor seating available so we asked if we could wait. They brought us some prosecco while we waited which was nice. The service was excellent,... More

I don't want to be too harsh here as the guys running this place are obviously very friendly and we had a great seat outside by the water during a thunderstorm which made for a spectacular setting. However food-wise my ragu was very very average yet my partners clam pasta was delicious. The house Merlo was just about serviceable but... More

First of all as another reviewer pointed out, the actual name of the restaurant is Trattoria San Basilio, This taverna was featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, and I can definitely see why. However, I do not watch the show, so that is not why we came. The brothers who run the restaurant were so good to our twin 22... More

Staying in Giudecca

Neighbourhood Profile
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.
