The family-run Antica Locanda Montin is both a delicious restaurant and a simple inn, a throwback to the days when travelers were accustomed to dining downstairs before retiring to their upper chambers. Throw in a canal-side location in quiet Dorsoduro and you have a real charmer. Guests of the two-star Locanda enter through the year-old restaurant downstairs and if you're not pausing to dine, head up the old wooden staircase. You arrive at an expansive, dimly lit salon, where paintings cram the walls and a heavy wooden table and cozy armchairs beg for a good, serious discussion. The paintings mostly date from the s and s, when they were used by artistic guests to pay off their hotel and restaurant tabs. The art continues in the 11 guest rooms, which lead off from the salon.
Antica Locanda Montin
The location of the hotel was very good. It is located on a quiet canal not far from the Academia Bridge and a 10 minute walk from the bus station. The staff were very nice and most spoke English. The Hotel has an old world feel to it. It was clean and the room was spacious with a lovely view of the garden out back. We had a private bathroom that was very acceptable. Overall the hotel has a bit of a 'worn' feeling to it, and the beds were O. For the price, I think that breakfast should have been included.

The Locando Montin is best known to locals, as it's slightly off the beaten track. In August there were very few tables because Venice was deserted. But the fish dinner couldn't be faulted. Beautiful food in a lovely garden setting. Full of locals gorging on some of the best pasta I have tasted. Highly recommended. Beautiful garden. Local food, pasta is perfect! Funghi porcini and melanzzane are also very good!
