“5 Star Food, Service & Location AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Before visiting Venice I really did my research on where to eat and found this lovely place in the Telegraph.

The service here is amazing, the restaurant beautiful well air-conditioned and not too busy. We were made to feel very welcome by a waiter and waitress who worked seamlessly together. They even provide a chair for your handbag!

We decided to go for the €28 lunch menu (2 courses). We started with some bread oils, a beer and some prosecco. For starters we both had the trio of fish followed by Seabass and Suckling Pig both were divine. We were too full for desert however I did have a Latte which came in the most beautiful Versace cup.

Lunch cost €85 and was worth every penny, this place is beautiful and quite hidden.
If your visiting Venice you must go here, I have attached some pictures.

Background: We are a young professional couple from London.

“Do you love superb food? Are you in Venice? Go to "Il Ridotto!!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed several days in Venice and ate twice in this fantastic restaurant!! A real hidden gem on a small square near the San Marco square...Although we like to discover new places and restaurants when we travel, the first time we ate in "Il Ridotto" it was so good that we decided to book a table for diner the last evening we stayed in Venice. And we did not regret it! Far from all "Tourist Menu" food, this restaurant serves such nice, elegant, and very tasty food. Service is very very good, and the restaurant is beautiful - modern, simple, stylish. You really should go there, and enjoy a wonderful evening, but book in advance since it is a rather small restaurant.

“Absolutely unbelievable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We arrived at the restaurant, seated with no booking, offered a la carte and taster menu, order a la carte and was presented with 6 courses over the course of the evening regardless. Service was sublime and they didnt go the extra mile they went ten miles, made the night unforgettable. Wow.

We absolutely loved it here! We came for my birthday lunch and enjoyed the food so much we wanted to come back for dinner!

We thought the lunch menu was very good value for money. We would highly recommend this place.
