Lovely, cozy restaurant easy walking distance from rail and train stations. I was impressed that we ate there on a Friday evening and when we returned on Sunday, the menu was completely different! Ossobucco was divine! A specialty is flan di zucca which is very good. Seems to be very popular, so book ahead.

We had dinner here on our last night in Venice. We were lucky to call the day before and secure a reservation. I would recommend booking before your trip as we were in low season and they were still turning people away. The food was superb and well priced. The menu is completely Italian but the staff had no problem... More

Be sure to book ahead as this cosy restaurant is extremely popular. Closed on Sundays, we had to wait until Monday (when most other Venetian restaurants seem to be closed) to sample their mainly vegan and vegetarian menu. Despite not being vegetarian, I opted for the pumpkin lasagne, and it was fabulous! The carafe of house white wine was also... More

Make sure you book in advance as this place was very difficult to get into! Lots of locals eat there so you know that's a good sign. I ate the eggplant soufflé and the pumpkin flan - both delicious! Decor inside was cute and had a very homely feel. Quite difficult to find, but worth a visit if you fancy... More

You know it's good food when you try to recreate the dish you had back at home! Came here with my husband's cousin, who lives outside of Bologna, and this was not his first time here. The atmosphere inside wasn't much, but the food definitely made up for it! As in the service, too. The food is made fresh in... More

The food and service were absolutely outstanding. Make a reservation, otherwise, you will not get in. My friend and I had unbelievably good food. We were thrilled with the selection of wine and food. Our server was so helpful and so lovely -- it made the whole experience a pleasure. Definitely head over here for dinner. It's a bit out... More

It was easily one of our best meals during our 25 day Euro Trip this summer. The food was especially more special since we had got ripped off with some below-average food the previous evening in the over-priced town that is Venice. Great variety, great taste and great presentation.

One of the best (if not THE best) local restaurants in Venice. Dishes are all super fresh and tasty, vegies are excellent! Super friendly owner and staff. Just loving it!

Was looking forward to enjoying a nice meal here after hearing good things about it but was very disappointed. Here goes.... 1. Menu in italian and not clearly separated but courses. As we only knew a few italian words we found it hard to chose from the menu. When we asked the waitress what a couple of the things were... More
