Great food, great wine, reasonable prices. Venice is not renowned for its meat dishes but this was the exception. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Have eaten here many times and it has become my to go restaurant for lunch or dinner. Staff is friendly and courteous. I’ve eaten here pizza, pasta, appetizers, main entrees and have never been disappointed. Prices are average for Venice.

We ate here 3 times during this past week and each experience was just wonderful. The place does wonderful meats and seafood as well as pizzas. Whereas the pizza part of the menu is voluminous (quite common throughout Italy) the part of the menu dealing...More

This was just down the street from our hotel. The service was friendly and efficient, the house white wine (a pinot bianco) was excellent and cheap, but the food was distinctly mediocre. Too many items on the menu, and I suspect they do none of...More

We have visited Venice before and luckily found this place on our first visit, and it was so good we have returned each time. The restaurant is tucked away not far from St Lucia Ferrovia but worth the hunt. It is a typical italian restaurant...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
