location is good in the campo but this rates a tie or is possibly the winner for the worst food in our 10 Italy trips!

Directions: Easy to find

I've liked liver since I was a little kid. I also like strong flavors. Fegato alla Veneziana is described as a liver for non liver lovers in other words milder, tasting entirely different from what i had. Mine was liver to the 4th power smelling like cat food at best, and as far as I know tasting like it too.

My primo was a spaghetti Bolognese, granted not a local dish but it was about up to school cafeteria standards.

I don't remember what Peg had but her response "it's ok with a frown translation, I don't like it." Some people by us also were unhappy and complained. Maybe we should have?

Interesting menu, good food, need to book

Directions: in Campo San Barnaba

I've eaten at Oniga several times and returned in November 2010. They have an interesting seasonal menu with lots of unique vegetable options, similar to La Zucca, and you can get a vegetable plate with an assortment. But this time I had the tagliatelle with radicchio, gorgonzola, and peas. Strong flavors that worked well together; it hit the spot on a cold night. You need to book ahead; I was there on a rainy Thursday night in November, and the place was full and they were turning people away. In warm weather, they have outside tables in the campo. Good food and moderate prices (for Venice).

Excellent food and nice atmosphere

One of the best meals I had on my December 2007 trip was at this casual, pleasant place in Campo San Barnaba. I had the vegetable antipasti, pumpkin lasagna, and for dessert, panna cotta with dark chocolate sauce.

The antipasti was the best. It was about eight small servings of various vegetables that included roasted fennel, sweet and sour pumpkin, stuffed mushrooms, and sautéed cabbage. Everything was spicy (not hot, just well-seasoned) and interesting and delicious. It reminded me of La Zucca (my favorite restaurant in Venice) which also does amazing things with vegetables.

The lasagna was rich and cheesy, and the panna cotta was very good. I also had mineral water and a half bottle of Soave, and the cost was around 40 euro. Not a bargain but not bad for Venice, and the price seemed right for the overall quality of the food.
