A very busy and lively restaurant.The staff were attentive and very helpful to insure of the best experience for all ! The food was varied and tasty and the wine menu gave plenty of choice. We visited in Venice’s worst week for high tides and although everyone had suffered, the service did not show It at all.

Our 4th visit to Oliva Nera. My wife & I go when we visit the Venice Biennale & each time standard of food service has been just about perfect.


Make no mistake this is not a cheap restaurant & you should expect to pay at least €120 euros for 2 people including a glass of wine or spritz each. However, that is good value as the menu of local produce & very high standard of fresh ingredients, precision cooking & presentation display Oliva’s pride, effort & attention to detail.


We shared delicately flavoured battered and fried stuffed zucchini flowers to start followed by perfectly cooked sea bass and home made bigoli (fat pasta) with a rich rabbit ragout. We chose to share the chef’s surprise for dessert which I would describe as a sticky date pudding cake with some creamy caramel ice cream. I drank a very delicious and generous house red and my wife a well made select spritz.


It’s a great place & we have always been delighted here. I would highly recommend even to the most demanding diners.

Very friendly and welcoming to Americans. It is a family owned restaurant with home cooked Venetian cuisine. We had the zucchini flowers to start. Lasagna and Sea bass for dinner and tiramisu and mascarpone with berries for dessert. Very delicious!!

Faultless dinner perfected over generations and served by this charming, family-owned restaurant. Reservations a MUST, so many disappointed people turned away while we were eating. You’ll want to try everything - including dessert, which is an experience in itself.

My favorite restaurant in Venice. It is a "treat" as it is not inexpensive. But I make it a point to eat here each year when I am in Venice. Food is outstanding, flavors are lovely. While offerings are generally "traditional" to the region, preparation is definitely elevated. The owner (?) is very warm & inviting. I tend toward heartier dishes, so I can't speak to the pastas. But the meats, fishes and seafood items are delicious. I highly recommend.

This restaurant should be further up the ratings. We asked to eat outside (booking essential) and it was delightful. Prompt attentive service. The food was delicious. We both had the black fettuccini with crayfish, seared sesame tuna with beetroot sauce for me and my husband had the best calves liver he's ever tasted, followed by delicious ice-creamy desert with berries and a "chef's surprise" which was a sort of fig brownie - gorgeous. My only sadness was I asked for a Bellini cocktail which they didn't do but we made up for it with a lovely pink Prosecco. A parting boxed gift of a bottle of olive oil was much appreciated and we certainly had a "Golden" celebration. Would return in an instant.

We visited for my birthday on our last night and had a truly amazing meal - the best of our trip. The owner was so welcoming and all the staff were so friendly. Unique dessert menu experience was fantastic and a gift of olive oil on our departure was very special. Thank you!!

We greatly enjoyed our dining experience. From being warmly welcomed as we entered to enjoying after dinner drinks, we had a wonderful meal. The food was beautifully plated and tasted as good as it looked. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. If I were to find myself in Venice again, I will most certainly have dinner here again.

Wonderful experience! We had two appetizers, the zucchini blossoms everyone else recommended and the sweet and sour veggie dish which was excellent, would go back just for that. We had two orders of the lasagne plus the spaghetti with mussels and one of the daily specials which was thinly sliced roast beef with truffles, all we excellent. Service was lovely and we were sent home with a bottle of homemade olive oil from the owner. Just a wonderful all around experience!
