The service was excellent and the owner visited our table at the start of the meal and at the end with a small gift. The food looked beautiful but between the 6 courses that we ate 3 of them were amazing and 3 were just...More

Not only tasteless, but also without a name! I’m talking about the dishes that you -didn’t- enjoy, because if the starters here have a name, the others have not. Sometimes it is said that a dog and his Owner can appear similar each other, but...More

The enthusiasm and the deep knowledge of the staff at Riviera truly justified its reputation. We had a wonderful time exploring new Italian sparkling wines, which went very well with their excellent sea bass. The warmth and obvious sincerity of the owner seems to infuse...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
