Come and join our table, share our food and wine, tell us about you, see an classic Venetian house, meet our friends and family, learn about Venice secrets, stories and food.

What to expect at Martha and Umberto's place
Martha and Umberto made my Venice experience completely worth it. They are an oasis of amazing local food in a desert filled with low quality fare made for tourists. The wine, cheese and risotto are to die for, and their company is worth staying long after the meal is over. Highly recommended!
I am 59 and had never been to anything like this before - I have to say I felt a bit nervous. My worries were completely unfounded as Martha and her family were fantastically welcoming and generous. Martha met us at the vaporetto stop at 8pm. There were 14 of us for dinner from all around the world and everyone communicated in English, French or German or a mixture of all! We had a lovely, entertaining evening - the food was very authentic Venetian family fare - fresh, generous and well-prepared. They were generous with wine and prosecco. Martha and Alfredo made me feel so welcome and I really enjoyed meeting other travellers who were as adventurous as I felt! I would do it again in a heart-beat and will look out for other opportunities to do it again in other cities What a great idea!
