A first class restaurant for anyone visiting Venice. Small cosy restaurant with excellent sea food and organic wines. Owner very welcoming and knowledgeable about menu. Food fresh and hand picked to compliment menu. Great restaurant. Very relaxed and informal with exquisite food! Will definitely return.

Our biggest worry about a trip to Venice was overpriced, tasteless and unauthentic dining experiences. We did our research but Osteria Trefanti was a gloriously happy accident. Escaping the hordes we headed to Accademia, did a quick search of nearby restaurants and managed to secure...More

This is a fantastic little restaurant. It specialised in fish but the vegetarian in our company was well catered for with lovely pasta dishes. The fish is all from the ocean and not farmed and cooked simply but with some excellent light accompanying sauces. We...More

This is a great if small place by the side of a canal. We had lasagne and wine and it proved to be very good value as well as tasty. A good choice for a stop & refresh. 😀

Have eaten there twice over the last two years, and both times had an excellent experience. The food and service is exceptional, but it's not a place that seems to get much hype/exposure. Seek this place out - it's definitely worth it.

innovative cuisine with a look to the past, succulent dishes and presented well, great choice on the wine list a selection far from obvious.

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

Not cheap, about €100 for two with wine but good value if you like seafood
