Hostaria OsottoOsopra was born from a fortuitous meeting, between the streets of Venice.
With a coffee and a chat, the dream of opening a restaurant with friends seemed to really take shape for the first time.
In August 2017, those that were initially only ideas are transformed into reality, within the walls of a former pub in Calle San Pantalon, a stone's throw from Campo Santa Margherita.It would not make sense to open yet another tourist place in Venice, only to then get confused among the many restaurants around the city.
No, Hostaria OsottoOsopra was supposed to be something different.
It had to be a place to feel at home, where eating well in Venice became possible at a reasonable price and where the service, always in the hand but always elegant, made me want to come back.
At the opening, Hosteria OsottoOsopra looked like this: with the atmosphere of a typical Venetian hostaria, but from the almost gourmet kitchen.

If you ever decide to visit this place, I strongly recommend their fish of the day whis on my visit was, seabass with lemon, olives, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes and all that baked in white wine( the exact description of the waiter). Fish was coocked to perfection and it was very good.

This is a cosy place, the service made us feel welcomed. Wish there were more people inside, but it's end of the season, so Venice is empty.

Very good food in a cosy restaurant. If you wanna visit it, better to make a reservation, as they tend to get full quickly, not sure about low season.

This is a very good restaurant near Piazzale Roma serving delicious Venetian food. The tables are small and close together in this two story restaurant. Tables on the second floor are recommended. The pastas are home made and there is a good selection of wines. Service is cordial and efficient. Overall a very good evening.

frankly from reading reviews i expected a bit more.

the food was fine not exceptional by any means the starters mussels were Ok and if i am being very hinest the mussels themselves were a bit small and hard in some cases.the sauce was nice and we were told on ordering that it was spicy ...it was not at all spicey
the maincourses were ok at best .i would not rate them as exceptional
the servcie was a bit hit and miss .. can i have my wine now
can i have a fork please

surely not the questions we would have e xpected to ask

all in all an average experience

Came here for dinner after seeing it on OpenTable . Lovely little restaurant, we had the goats cheese and pumpkin to start which was really tasty and the mozerella and tomatoes, we’ve never had tastier mozerella!!! I had the spaghetti with langostines which was good and my boyfriend has the ricotta ravioli which was Devine, I was slightly jealous I didn’t pick it!! Had tiramisu for dessert which was also lovely. Service was also very good

Recommend without hesitation, staff were very attentive and well informed. Would love to eat the beef cheek every day if possible. Pasta was cooked perfectly and everything was plated well, pasta was twirled nice and tight onto the plate. Edible flowers were a nice touch of colour. Over all a superb meal without fault.

First of all the service was fantastic. I had fish and my spouse had spaghetti with shrimp and both were very good. Don't miss desserts. Off the main tourist streets but very worthwhile.

il ristorante si compone di due piani ovviamente, entrambi raccolti.
al piano terra pochi tavoli per due guardano sul calle, sopra in una stanza rivestita in legno scuro, la sala principale.
noi siamo stati nella sala al piano superiore.
locale comunque intimo, di buona atmosfera (a parte tre coppie di tedeschi in libera uscita...), siamo stati bene.
i piatti sono semplici ma ben curati.
la carta dei vini non è eccelsa.
il conto per essere a Venezia è stato buono, considerando il numero di due portate a testa.

Absolutely incredible meal. Inventive, modern takes on classic Italian cuisine and ingredients. I am wary of giving this a good review because I am afraid I won't be able to get a reservation in the future!

Waiter did not give us breadbasket until we asked. He did not offer another mixed drink when he took our empty glasses as we finished the first ones. We had to wave him down to ask for another round. Also, when we asked to order another additional entree (to be 3 total) he told us we had ordered enough food. Who does that?! Aren’t they trying to make a “sale?” Shouldn’t we be allowed to decide if it’s too much food? We were treated polite enough but waiter was very curt and rather impatient with helping us make decisions on food choices. No “extra” at all this evening!! We were disappointed. Came from Dallas TX having specifically chosen this restaurant. Not recommending to others. Service is important to us, including attention to detail. A sour acting waiter did not impress.

Ristorante molto carino nel centro di Venezia.
Personale molto gentile e preparato.
Dopo aver letto le migliaia di recensioni positive ho deciso di provare il ristorante che si è rivelato all’altezza, anzi al d sopra delle mie aspettative. Il cibo è ottimo e di qualità, ve lo consiglio!

Ottima location. Il cibo è fresco e preparato con cura.
Il servizio è il migliore che mi sia capitato di vedere. Prima di ordinare i cibi, il cameriere ha chiesto di eventuali allergie e intolleranze. Inoltre, per ogni piatto un'accurata descrizione degli ingredienti viene fornita sempre dal cameriere. Consigliatissimo. La professionalità e la gentilezza sono al top.

Excellent Venice restaurant, and so helpful to be able to book via Open Table. We had the ravioli in truffle sauce which was excellent, and the fish if the day and beef cheeks which were both very tasty and cooked to perfection. Good, reasonably priced wine list. All beautifully served with great friendly staff and very good value, we would definitely recommend!
