Fodor's Review

The decor is more discreet, the dining hours longer, and the service friendlier and more efficient here than in many small restaurants in Venice—and the nonfish menu (inspired by the cuisine of the Venetian terra firma) is a temptation at every course. Market availability keeps the menu changing almost every day, although typically you can start with a savory barley soup or gnocchi with winter squash and aged ricotta cheese. Then choose a secondo such as lamb chops with thyme, anatra in pevarada (duck in a pepper sauce), or guinea hen in cream. The homemade desserts are all luscious, and it's been said that La Bitta serves the best panna cotta in town. Trust owner Deborah Civiero's selection from her excellent wine and grappa lists.

Cash only

This restaurant accepts cash only -- we arrived for our reservation to learn this. We didn't have enough cash only to pay for our hoped-for meal, so we cancelled our reservation and left the restaurant disappointed. It sure smelled good in the restaurant, but since we didn't eat anything or experience the service, I can't really rate anything but the Decor. The Fodors website insists that I provide a rating for everything, so I'm rating Food, Service

and Value as 3 out of 5 stars (the "middle of the road" rating) -- but again, we didn't eat there, so this ratings should be ignored.
