We ate here on our last night in Venice - and I wish we had found this restaurant earlier. It was the best meal - and the best value - of our holiday. The setting is unusual in a small piazza and after dark made...More

Dinner outside in the small campo in warm weather was really nice. There's a good sized menu organized by meat, fish, vegetarian. Prices were reasonable but there's no house wine available - only bottles. Service was very good as was the food. Definitely going to...More

The food was not bad, but they charged us €2.5 for a jug of water and €4 for two pieces of bread, which was not communicated to us in any way.

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
