My wife had been to Da Bruno some years ago. We tried it this trip. Good food. Somewhat changed, according to my wife. Very good.

After having a great experience at a 50% off TripAdvisor/thefork restaurant booking in Rome, we were excited to see the offer for this place, but were left very disappointed. Firstly, the food was really slow and also average. We waited over an hour for our mains and watched everyone around us get their meals first, even though they were seated... More

We booked via TripAdvisor La Forchette (The Fork) and got 50% off. It was off the whole bill including wine. As a result we ordered a real feast. The whole family enjoyed it, salad, pasta, steak, grilled vegetables. High quality food in a city with so much over-priced mediocrity. Sergio the waiter was absolutely wonderful too.

Sorry to say that after reading trip advisor reviews and then booking this restaurant I wish I hadn't. It seems that you have to order at least a starter pasta AND main course here before you feel like you have had a meal. My husband and I had a decent sized salad between us and a mixed fish dish which... More

We used trip advisor and chose this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. The restaurant is in need of updating/modernising. But don't let that put you off. The food was faultless and the service (especially from Sergio) was excellent. €100 euros for 2 people having 2 courses with a bottle of wine (after TripAdvisor discout) isn't bad for... More

This place was great the staff were really helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We booked online and got the discount. At the start of the meal they brought us a small drink and piece of bruchetta for free. We had main and desert. All the food was lovely and we weren't rushed at all

When we walked in, there was only other table occupied and I was a bit worried - was everyone else wrong? Was this even the right place? It soon filled up though as Italians tend to eat later. We were blown away by the service here. Welcome drink... Welcome bruschetta... Being asked how our meals were. Would we like parmesan?,... More

Description
The Ristorante da Bruno is located in a peaceful corner of Venice, called Calle Paradiso. It is about 300 meters from Piazza San Marco and 400 from the Rialto Bridge. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and is the perfect place to stop after a day spent in the lovely Venice's alleys and discover the authentic flavor of this land. Da Bruno you will find traditional dishes, but also a fine selection of Mediterranean food, with a menu of meat and fish. Our staff, day after day, works hard in order to satisfy the palate of a group of clients that is increasing more and more: that is why you can opt for the a la carte menu or the tourist one, depending on your needs. When you come inside this lovely little world, you will be overwhelmed by the warm and cozy atmosphere that characterizes the restaurant. Let yourself be pampered by our team of professionals, who is looking forward to offer you the best of our tradition and leave you exquisitely speechless.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
