This was recommended to us by friends who said they ate there twice in one week on their trip to Venice, so we had to try it! Make reservations as it was packed! We ate outside on the street. It's family owned and they all work there. Service was typically Italian so expect a leisurely dinner. The fried zucchini flowers were exceptional!

Went here based on recommendation from a local. Delicious food and friendly staff! Highly recommend the fried stuffed zucchini flowers. I went with a baby and they were more than hospitable to us. One of the best meals we had in Venice!

Our first night in Venice, we had made reservations through Isabella for dinner.
The staff, warm and helpful.
Food, amazing. Having had a long day of travel, Isabella created a fresh tomato pasta for me so that I could have a simple meal.
The dessert menu was drawn by hand by a charming young waiter.
We both loved our evening at the Oliva Nera.

We returned to the Osteria after some time and we were glad to find same outstanding quality of food and very professional service. We had lamb and venison and both were perfectly cooked and tasteful. Only little remark is the limited choice of appetizer. Desserts are home made and really excellent. Personnel is very efficient, everybody speaks an excellent english and you get a nice gift at the end!

Relatively close proximity to San Marco Square, this Osteria has indoor and outdoor seating. The waitstaff are well trained in the food as well as the special house wines. The owner, (I believe Isabella) visits you to introduce the wines she offers as well as address any questions about the menu.This is a professionally run establishment. The duck was very good, and prepared perfectly. The skin was scored and meat served medium rare, plated beautifully. The fish was also very good. Zucchini flowers were served as an app, and were well received. Dinner ran 168 Euros per couple including wine (two bottles) and dessert. Not inexpensive, but good value and a worthwhile experience.
