We've been coming back over the years. A great family run bar with outside dining and a brilliant place to sit and people watch as the cross the Academia Bridge. Great aperetivi and plates of cheese and cold meats. We will be back.

The3 place attraccted us with a nice location at the foot of Accademia bridge. The view at the canal is the only positive memory of the stay. Limited menu (no pasta except lasagne), average in taste and small in size overpriced dishes. Waiters chasing customers...More

Drinks are rather expensive and the food (mainly pizzas) disappointing. Service is just average. Nothing special apart from the strategic location.

This is the place where I would like to live and die! No place is better than being here. Whether alone or traveling with a partner, there is romance and love in the air and it engulfs you. Dont forget to take the Gondola ride.

My boyfriend and I had been walking around for a while, unimpressed with the Venice food until we found this wonderful place. While the food was delicious but average, the service, views, options, and prices for all of the above were made us two very...More

Sadly restaurant doesn't live up to the great views, the very limited menu of pizza is poor and if you dare complain about the bad food , your likely to get the foul mouthed owner swearing at you in full view of the whole restaurant....More

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

Yes. You can sit inside. But I never got to sit inside. It may be packed. I imagine colder months more people want to sit inside.
