Reasonable price, decent food with a nice outdoor eating area in Dorsoduro.

Much like the more well known Taverna San Trovaso which is owned by the same people, the Ristorante has a smaller but similar menu (no pizza though). The advantage is a nice outdoor seating area that may make up for the smaller menu choices. The food is good, not great, but consistently reliable. There also seems to be less of a need for a reservation. We normally stay in this general area of the Dorsoduro and eat here once on a typical 5-ish night stay. They also have some decent wines, a few higher end ones than the Taverna.

Owned by the same people as the Taverna San Trovaso and similar in quality - different menu than the Taverna and they have a nice outdoor eating area.

Directions: See map on website.

It is decent food, not excellent but better than a lot of Venice - very similar to how I would describe the Taverna as well. We have eaten here multiple times on multiple visits. This time we had dinner with appetizers of bresaola con rucola e grana and vongole e cozze. We then had primi of gnocchi ai quattro formaggio and spaghetti con vongole. These plus water, a bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso (25 euros) and cappuccino totaled 71 euros. The service this time was just OK as they had a number of larger parties. If the weather is nice the outdoor seating is a big plus.
