Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
The best thing about Venice is being able to walk ten minutes' from the throng of tourists (even in Venice) and find yourself in backstreet beauty.
This restaurant is one such place. Although is not particularly favoured by locals, the location is stunning and the...More
Recommended by our superb guide, Nadia Danesin, we had a late lunch/early dinner later in the week. The spagetti ragu and veal scalopine was excellent. Service was friendly and professional. The garden area is a great venue for lunch. I would highly recommend.
Our hotel recommended this place to us and the food as well as the location was great. The garden is like a hidden treasure and although we went for dinner, we were told that lunch time is the best as you can really enjoy the...More

suggest you call hotel,for specific instructions-I had spoken to them prior to trip plus emailed them and they were very responsive . I stayed at the Zaterre ai Gesuati 925 with Giovanni Leone instead- his email isleoneve at gmail. and Antica La montin was short walk from there. You can take the vaporetto to the Zaterre from the train station. once at Zaterre you would have to cross little bridge to your left, walk past post office and turn right. Ventians are very helpful and many spoke English fluently so did not find it problematical in asking for directions. the food & service at the hotel were lovely.
