Selected via comments on trip advisor and as it was only 5 minutes walk from our hotel we chose to ignore the watch out comments. Not as good as we had hoped. It was a Tuesday evening so no real excuse for being out of...More

This restaurant is on a quiet little campo. It's not fancy. Service was friendly. We had a Greek salad and spaghetti carbonara. Both were excellent. We don't eat a lot, especially at dinner, so it's nice to find places we can order a couple of...More

We happened upon this place completely by accident, after "getting lost" in Santa Croce, which was lucky for us, because the food was excellent!! We got there really early and were the first to be seated and served, so we don't know how it might...More

Authentic italian restaurant. Much less busy part of venice. More of a local feel. Service was ok but food was excellent. Lasagna and ravioli delicious. Desserts were superb. Very good tiramisu and frutti di bosco cake. Complimentary limincello at end which was a nice touch....More

Nice outdoor setting in a residential square. My wife highly recommends the pesto pasta and the salmon. I would definitely NOT recommend the gnocchi or the monkfish (20 euro for about 85 g or 3 oz of fish). Service was indifferent.

Crowded, loud, intimate restaurant aiming for fine dining. Attentive, personal service. Changing menu. Good wine list. Quality ingredients and skillful preparation. Carbonara was spot on, Tagliatelle with fresh porcini and speck excellent, as was the veal scallopini with porcini. Liver and onions was textbook, but...More

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
