We waited a long time for our food (more than 30 min). The pizza was hard and burned and we barely could slice it. The only positive thing in this place is the beautiful view.More

We had lunch stop there and we didn't regret it. Pizzas were great, the staff very polite and the prices normal for the standards of the place-just upon the Canale Grande.

I wish I could take this meal back as the food & service were poor along with the 2 euro "cover charge" (per person) and cash only policy mentioned after the meal was finished. This place banks off its proximity to the gallerie dell'accademia and...More

Perfect place to sit and watch the city life float past. If you come in 'bug-season' apply the spray, but I guess that applies anywhere near water. Great Pizzas, Great Beers, Great Service. Coming back next time

Our favourite spot in Venice. Always visit a number of times for lunch when we are here. One of the best views in town at the foot of Academia Bridge (a place to eat outside, nothing special inside) Service is always good. We are on...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
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

We are going to Venice in January & would like to try Bar Foscarini. I have seen so many beautiful photos of the terrace next to the Canal, but I'm wondering if there is space to sit inside if the weather is not nice. Thanks!!

Yes. You can sit inside. But I never got to sit inside. It may be packed. I imagine colder months more people want to sit inside.
