Such a great little restaurant. Small menu but everything was delicious - highly recommend the beef carpaccio and the big salad. We had the tagliatelle and gnocchi on both visits. Best food we ate in Venice.

Our family of five had the cozy table inside by the entrance for the 7pm seating and despite tired kids, my wife and I had one of our favorite meals. Certainly more expensive than many other neighborhood trattorias but more polished service and excellent execution...More

We had an excellent dinner last night at La Bitta. It's definitely very small and compact seating. The prices are very reasonable for food and wine. Definitely make a reservation. Another great feature is the air-conditioning really works. I had pork roast with vegetables and...More

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
