Venice Restaurant

So I am looking into some restaurants for our trip this coming June. I am looking at some of Rick's recommendations. I was looking into Trattoria da Bepi in Venice due to it being in Rick's book. I was amazed to see it had some pretty atrocious reviews. Then I came across a couple that said don't confuse it with the restaurant with the same name nearby.

Have people run into this in Italy? Is it something to be on the watch for? Such as a couple restaurants with the same name? Just curious if this is one instance or if people have noticed it as well.

It is now called Bepi Antico and is on Salizada Pistor. (Rick’s 2019 book called it Trattoria da Bepi.) We ate there years ago (2016 or 2017) and we were underwhelmed.

I highly recommend Antico Calice based on recent experience. Reservations a must and they do take reservations by email.

Bepi may be the most common first name in Venice, but the 2 restaurants' names are not the same. The One close to the Tre Archi Bridge is called Osteria da Bepi, the place close to the Guglie Bridge is a trattoria, Trattoria da Bepi. Like Joe's Pizza and Joe's Diner & Bar in Manhattan, is it something to be on the watch for?

Everything is nearby in central Venice, but not all Italian cities are so small.

Good to know. I was just going off of reviews. I have Rick's book from 2020 so hopefully that is updated.
