Venice Restaurants

Ai 4 Feri

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

The paper tablecloths and cozy, laid-back ambience are part of this small restaurant's charm. The menu varies according to what's fresh that day; imaginative combinations of ingredients in the primi—herring and sweet peppers, salmon and radicchio, giant shrimp and broccoli with pumpkin gnocchi—are the norm. A meal here followed by after-dinner gelato at Il Doge or drinks in Campo Santa Margherita, a five-minute walk away, makes for a lovely evening. The kitchen is

open until 10:30 pm.

Creepy Place

I go to Venice often and the food at Ai 4 Feri is good enough for me to think, oh I remember this place, and then to go again. But what I forget is that they hate tourists and do just about anything they can to make you feel unwanted. The most peculiar thing is that in a largely empty restaurant they will seat other diners at your table--these are small tables and its an awkward squeeze. At the same time locals, even single diners, get a full table

(they even spread out with newspapers). Then, if you remonstrate, even politely, and point to all the other empty tables, they look at you blankly and say, sorry this is just the way we do it, would you like to leave? Answer: yes.

Simple, local, good

We had lunch here, mostly locals. Simple, unpretentious restaurant with well prepared, very fresh food. Only modest English spoken, but who cares.

Wish we'd found this place on our first night

We ate at many of Venice's best -- Da Fiore, Al Covo, Fraschetteria Toscano, Harry's Bar -- and this was our favorite meal. Amazing stuff

Simple Seafood

Cramped, shared tables lacking privacy tarnish an otherwise well prepared, reasonably priced, simple seafood meal. Friendly waiters and no smoking policy in this small, crowded fish bistro are a plus.
