Nice terrasse directly in front of the water, very nice presentation of the dishes, friendly welcome and good-bye from the restaurant owner, but overall disappointment especially in view of the high prices charged: Ingredients were of quality but all dishes lacked taste and flavor. Overall:...More

Disappointing is to see that there's some people unable to express themselves when in front of you included when you're enquiring whether they are satisfied and, on the contrary, these people are able to shake your hand and offer greetings when leaving the place. Disappointing...More

We celebrated my husband's 40th Birthday at Riviera and had a wonderful night. Fabulous location overlooking the water and the staff were lovely and service fantastic. The owner made us feel very welcome and helped us celebrate the occasion.

We loved this restaurant. I'd booked it after a bit of research before arriving in Venice. We were greeted by the owner and he was keen to make us feel welcome, that we were doing him the favour rather than the other way round :)...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
