The name is inspired by the “Ridotto Theatre”, a small and old Venetian theatre. In fact, like this theatre, Il Ridotto Restaurant is a small elegant restaurant, with only 9 tables. It was started in 2006 by Gianni Bonaccorsi, who strongly wanted to create a place of high quality cuisine and fine dining. It is located in Campo SS. Filippo e Giacomo, in the Sestiere Castello, just a few steps from Piazza San Marco and close to San Zaccaria water bus stop. In the neighborhood you can find the Bridge of Sighs, the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. Our cuisine is anchored to land and sea products and to high quality raw materials. The dishes are the result of research and they change according to seasonal ingredients and creativity. Il Ridotto’s gastronomic philosophy has been awarded a Michelin star since 2013. The cellar offers a wide selection of national and international wines, all selected by the chef Gianni Bonaccorsi after a careful research among what is produced during the year. Wine-lovers will also find dated wines.

Tips from the Net @ Il Ridotto

Intimate restaurant with 9 tables. Had the 5 course prix fix fish menu that was excellent. Would highly recommend for those looking for excellent cuisine slightly off the St. Mark’s square area. Foursquare - September 2017

Best value in center ! Perfect lunch in 2 services for less than 30euros with a professional service. Near tourists but it seems that they prefer bad quality pizzas in San Marco, good for the others ! GooglePlace - September 2017

Upmarket restaurant in St Mark's Square vicinity Booked ahead before arriving in Venice as heard that its always busy. It has only 8 or 9 tables in total so is a "cosy" place. Two taster menus are on offer - seafood only or seafood and meat. There is also an ala carte menu but our waiter explained that due to a public holiday the day before they didnt have enough raw ingredients to offer some of those dishes. Wait staff are attentive but also a little distant (perhaps a language barrier?). Our meal started with a fallafel with a basil puree, then a lobster dish, then a steak tartare dish (two mounds of meat - one with gorgeous truffle slices, the other with a wafer on top), gazpacho with very fresh seafood, pork roulade. Finished off with desert surprise. We choose wine by the glass (about 10 euro) and sparkling water. All up it cost us 209 euro (for two). Expensive but worth it. GooglePlace - August 2017

As a highly recommended and stared restaurant my expectations were high. While the steak tartare was imaginative and excellent to taste, the rest of the meal was unimaginative. The service verged on surly when it came it all. We were very disappointed. GooglePlace - July 2017

I am milk allergic and they totally adapted the menu with wonderful creations. If you would like to try new concepts and unusual combinations, this is the place to go. Who ever came up with the idea of basil flavoured icecream. And it was overall a flavour explosion experience. GooglePlace - June 2017
