    We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try and thank God we did. This place was hidden in a small street that is difficult to notice but has a view to the canal. We got there and we literally had the place for ourselves which was perfect because we don't like crowded restaurants. The food was absolutely delicious, I had a fruti di mare past, and my friends had risotto , tortellini and another seafood pasta. Everything was perfect and the price is very good comparing with the ridiculous prices im Venice. Please visit this restaurant, you won't be disappointed!

    Ordered the clams with garlic as starter, branzino and risotto for mains, and tiramisu. Excellent all around. The most impressive was the flavor and freshness of the branzino. It was super moist, fresh, and the sauce was on point- white wine and herbs. Also really good value for money.

    A hidden trattoria, literally hidden but worth the walk and getting lost. Madonna was our host, speaks fluent English and an angel. Appetizers and main course, all amazing...fried squid, shrimp cocktail, clams w/wine, garlic & parsley, fish soup is DELICIOUS. All seafood was fresh and tasty. Highly recommend, just make sure you have wifi or really good directions before going. Made our daughters 16th birthday perfect!

    The restaurant didn’t have our booking, service was slow and food was very middle of the road in contrast to the reviews we had read. Given thru didn’t have our booking we didn’t even attempt to ask for the 20% off when booking through the fork. Disappointing all round.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Dona Onesta. We reserved one of the small tables outside overlooking the canal. We enjoyed spritz, the polenta with shrimp appetizer and seafood risotto for the entree. Everything was delicious and well prepared. The homemade Panna Cotta and Creme Caramel for dessert were amazing. Highly recommend this trattoria when you are in Venice!

    We went to Dona Onesta because of the reviews. Well the reviews were wrong. We sat FOREVER to even talk with the waiter. It took forever to get our food. I mean like 45 min! Everyone around us got their food, but ours never came. I ordered the lasagna, not hot! The seafood platter was very disappointing, not good. Bottom line, it's a cute place, but not good food!!

    A great find. The setting is right by the canal with 4 tables outside. Inside is spacious and welcoming as is the greeting by the staff. A good choice of dishes on the menu. The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. All is home made. Would highly recommend.

    Great staff. The mushroom risotto was the best i have ever had! Good wine list with local wines, server was knowledges. Also had excellent Marsala and my son has cuttlefish with squid ink that was perfect. Great tables on the canal with service through windows, very cool.

    Dona Onesta was the premier experience we were looking for in Venice. Required a long walk through winding and historical passages away from the tourists and high prices in San Marco. Highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic or family dinner on the canal. They even have air conditioning for those hot evenings in Venice!
